Perhaps Brian or Joshua can comment on envelope quality control and testing.

Yes they do, there's a third party pdi that puts it through a rain storm.

Is that all or select selection of what comes off the line?

The entire topic is gone.
It is back !!

The site team took the original thread offline to do some editing because of some rules violations. In the mean time, a 2nd thread was started. I have merged the 2 threads to where I think all posts should make sense now.

A quick side note on this subject. During storage and transport, a RV can get pretty dirty. Some dealers use commercial Truck Power Washers to clean them. The problem is that the operator is usually the wash bay person ( entry level job) and if not used properly they can damage caulking and sealed joints. If you are buying a new unit, tell your dealer you do not want it power washed. If you use a commercial company to maintain your RV also insist they do not power wash it unless done by an experienced person. Power washing is not bad if used properly but they are very easy to misuse.

I had a torrent of water come in through the roof of the cab and the dome light, after a rain. Brand new 2016 Forester. Had a local repairman seal it because the dealer couldn't get to it for months. It has been back to the dealer twice for numerous repairs since I bought it in June. Very frustrated and disappointed.

I wish posters would specify which model they have in their signature or body of their reply. Is it the Forester MBS with the leaks?

Like many things in the RV world.. A leak is a leak, it does not matter whether it is a Forester or a Georgetown.. Or a TT. They all have the same spots to leak, except the TT that do not have a joint connecting the camper to the truck chassis.

Roof leak

The first real rain we had in CA and the roof leaked. I think the problem was the antenna plug on the roof. It had minimal sealant and wasn't screwed to the roof tight. I resealed the roof cap and the antenna and hope that is good to keep the water out.
