Agree, the clearance lights especially since its parked, seems to be coming straight down as opposed to coming in around the seal between the cab and coach body. Get with Forest River to get her fixed up before secondary damage occurs.

Fought a slideout leak in my Trilogy for almost two years. Factory finally discovered the seal wasn't sealed to the side. Once glued down it was fine. Hoping the rain we had didn't ruin the seal someplace.

just returned from COACHMEN FACTORY, great bunch of folks, outstanding service, left NO STONE UNTURNED, found out why I had 2 of my 3 slides leaking in big rains, they pulled the slides out of the Concord and did a total rebuild/fix, done right and spared no expense. I highly recommend anyone that can return to their FACTORY for repairs of stuff that concerns the COACH meaning not the accessories, although Coachmen brought in the BIG FOOT guys in to fix a bad connection to my leveling system.

Cab/Cap leak

This unit has only been on one trip since we bought it in May. No vents or windows are open. We live 250 from the dealer, and it has already spent one month at the dealer for a multitude of other problems. Please advise.
We had the identical problem with our Solera 24R where about a gallon of water spilled through the visors when I moved it after a hard rain...took it to the dealer, and found out that the sealant was not applied correctly during manufacture...had mud and water tracks under cap overlap, and they were separated by about an inch so water could literally pour in during a hard rain...the unit has been resealed and it was covered under warranty. The technician sounded like he really knew what he was talking about...

Hi, I had the same issue with my brand new rig! I'm fighting with the dealer for a resolution. That aside, I was told by Forest River that Camping World is an authorized warranty facility. Hopefully , there's one near you that's closer than the dealer.

Wow! It seems to be a real construction flaw with these coaches. This is the third thread and more than a dozen complaints about the same issue

Just seems to be business as usual with FR. There commitment to quality products made by gifted craftsmen, followed up by a real good quality control inspection.
Grumpy :roflb lack:

Oh lord! Not another one! I'm so sorry. Mind leaked just like yours after only 10 days (first rain). The dealers solution was to put a freaking huge amount of dicor on the seams bug told me all the trapped water would just have to 'dry out'. Not good enough for me. Worried about mold.

Hello Forest River, please do something about these leaks on brand new rigs.

I have the same problem with my new Foester 2401W. Unfortunately I live 600 miles from the dealer I bought it from. I took it to an authorized repair place where I live. They re sealed the front part of the roof... still leaking big time. I'm wondering if there is a manufacturing defect I haven't heard about. Has anyone else with this issue had it resolved?

I had a small leak shortly after I received my unit. All of the sealant on the roof seams looked fine. I notice moisture inside some of the clearance lights and on further inspection saw that sealant was lacking around the base plates. The lens just snap on and don't provide a good seal. I removed the base plates and resealed them insuring all wiring holes were completed covered. No leaks to date.
