My 2010 Georgetown 378 went back to the factory in Indiana to have the entire roof replaced in Dec 2012. The roof was de-laminating especially over driver with soft, "punky" underlayment. The top layer was cracking as well. In our case it is poor engineering to run rails with screws down the length of the top. It forms a gully along the entire top and the water just sits there. The only exit point for water is at the corners and then it has to go over a bead of caulk. It started to leak very early, soon after purchase. Got to keep an eye on that.

Thanks for sharing. Is FR covering the roof replacement hopefully?

Yes, they covered everything and while it was at the factory, they replaced a bunch of other things: ladder, steps, re-glued cabinet doors etc. but the new roof has the same rails down the length so I guess we will know in a few years if is a really bad engineering design doomed to repeat failure.
