Possible leak

We purchased a 2016 MBS 2400. I noticed some discoloration on the ceiling? It looks like some possible water leaks ? Has anyone had issues in back corners of rv leaking?

Wisco Seeker, I see it is your 1st post... Welcome!

Yes LOTS of people have leaking issues and discoloration.

You may find it helpful to do a search of the site and peruse the many threads on leaks.

If you can post photos of your discoloration and the areas outside that you might suspect are leaking, you will get good advice on how to go about repairing it.

Did you buy this used from an individual or dealer.
Is there any warranty?
Have you done anything to try to correct the issue?

Your post is just too general to give any better answers.

MBS leak

well the soft headliner type ceiling is a little darker than the rest. not really that bad but it does show evidence of water. its on the back corners. I have much concern that so many people have leaks on newer rv's (1-4) years of age... I bought it with 34K on it for 58,5K I am thinking I should off load it before any issues do arise. I would think I could sell for more or even price to what I purchased it for. I did not do my research on issues on these rv/s.. no leak as of now but looks to be some in past...

Check the roof for soft spots. If none then reseal and you might be OK. The real issue is when the water goes down in the walls, it rots the wood framing and that could be a disaster.
