I am going to use Eternabond tape across the front seam as well if only as a preventative measure at the least.
There was an earlier thread HERE
that first had me concerned
Yes, It first started as some beige discolored marks like the foam or the glue behind the vinyl is breaking down. Then it got larger and in some places looked red. I peeled it back thinking it could be moisture and it was always dry. Don't mistake dry for never wet! It did this for a while with no signs of a leak on the roof. And then it all of a sudden was soft. If you have the entertainment center, just eternabond the seams and check for softness.
Only after the roof was soft did I find where water was in the camper under the overhead matress. I assume when it got soft was when the major water got in.
The front appears to be the problem area, but don't assume its the only place. I have the same problem in my closet at the rear drivers corner. Wet cedar and all....
Too bad my leak wasn't fast enough to be under warranty.
