My rig is in a dealership for repairs on the leak and the tail light issue. I spoke with Russ who is more than accommodating and until proven differently I am choosing to have faith that FR via the dealership (which is not the one I bought from) will do what is right. So far it sounds like it. Maybe I am rosy glasses here but for once I am going to believe right will be done and I won't have to go crazy woman on anyone.

2016 Forester 2401W, picked up in August 2015

Sure looks like the MBS 2401's with the leaks, not the Fords or Chevy.

Knock on wood, this 2015 2051sle is the first rv I ever owned a and it will be 1 year old Dec 31 and after 11 trips and a few torrentcial rain storms only one small leak in the corner of the sleeper slide. That was in Pensicola in a site by the water and getting hit on the slide side by a driving rain storm. When the rv was about eight months old I washed my roof down with a low pressure wash and calked every thing that looked a little thin. I'd hate to believe that my experiance is the exception to the rule.

Roof Leaks on new Solera

We bought a brand new Solera R24 last May. It wasn't until the first heavy rain came that, when I went to move it, at least a gallon of water dumped into my lap, and down through the visors onto the dash. The source of the leak remains a complete mystery, but it reservoirs up between the cab, and the cap. It is at the dealer's service center now. After I reversed it's direction on our driveway, I could hear water trickling near my head along the side of the cab, presumably back between the walls of the chassis by the couch slider. I am not sure how they are going to get the water out of the walls. It really knocked the wind out of our travel plans. I have heard of another one in Florida with the same identical problem.

From Oregon...Merry Christmas.

Oh that's where the water in mine came in!! Yes it ruined my thanksgiving holiday and now I worry about mold forming. The dealer, at FR request, resealed the cap but I'm not holding my breath. What about all the water between the walls?

You need to run a dehumidifier inside for a few days and reposition it eveytime you empty it. I flooded my bathroom a couple of years ago. The water ran under the wall thru my two walk in closets [under carpets] and halfway under my king size bed. The woodwork in the bathroom was pulling away from the wall. I went to Lowes and bought their medium size dehumidifier and ran it for 7 days emtying every few hours and facing it in a different direction. It dried everything the carpet the padding under the carpet no odor or mold and the woodwork pulled back into place and you would never know that their was a flood. I'm not saying it will fix your problem but it should prevent mold until you find out where the leak is coming from

roofleaks

There is no such thing as mold proof. You need to see what FR will repair and if it has to go back to the factory.
Talk directly to an the warrenty guy for your brand of trl. Take pic and be nice when speaking with them and you can probably resolve it quickly.
Don't start by demanding a new trl until the problem cannot be rectified
I have seen walls ,roofs replaced by FR 3-4 years out of warrenty no charge.
Don't listen to the negativity and just go in with a positivr attitude.
