Default NOW WHAT?????

So, how bad are these and how bad will the damage in the front wall be since we were out in some terrible rainstorms recently...





Just when I thought things were going to be okay...

Default Arrgh!

Wow, is that frustrating! Head on back to the dealer. Even if those cracks are not yet leaking, they could start soon. This is not acceptable on a new unit. Maybe suggest that the dealer replace the substandard caulk with Eternabond? Not sure what the next move should be.

Hang tough. You have already had a lot of practice in hanging tough.

A $10 tube of self leveling dap and a trip up on top will solve that in about 20 minutes. That's all that other glob is up tyere. While your up there walk the entire roof and add as necessary in other suspect spots. Do this at least twice a year up top to prevent leaks.

Kind of a sloppy initial job, but probably not all tha serious. Like Roy said - a quick and easy fix. Make sure the dealer checks ALL of the seams though.

It never ends !! But not a big deal , just like Roy said , apply some more up there and close up that crack , unless u want to bring it to the dealer to fix .

I just had to order new lights in the back of my toy hauler , because the idiots silcone all the screw holes up and the crap is so hard I can't get it out . So replacing light bulbs is impossible without breaking the lense off the rear spotlights out back .

Haha it never ends !!

Right after I got my toy hauler, I turned on those rear flood lights to see if they worked ........ they did.

Haven't ever had any use for them and that was 3 years ago...so probably never will use them.

Those rear floods work well for unloading at the track on those night arrivals BUT you best be plugged into shore power or you'll drain the battery in no time. Mine still work but first day home with it one was full of rain water. I removed the lense then and sealed it.
