2015 Sunseeker Roof

Can anyone tell me what type of roof is on a 2015 sunseeker? We apparently have a leak in the back. Thought it was window seal and resealed but now have brown running down shower stall. Will need to reseal. Bought used so not sure when/if ever resealed. Thanks

I know the 2016 has a fiberglass roof, I believe the 2015 was also.

Sunseekers have fiberglass roofs
One of their main selling points

seal

Possibly consider a product like eterna bond or eqiv tape. The sunseeker does well on the flat runs of fiberglass on the roof but they do not roll it over the sides (crown?) So all of the seams are just dicored (is that a word?). Two rolls of 50' did our coach and is now easy to inspect ever since.. Any leak of the fiberglass itself is a just a tube of dicor to fix....
You can go to a rv shop and have the coach pressure tested to find the leak, but I would bet my lunch money the tape would solve the issues...

Some will say tape is a repair and reduces the book value

You can do this in about five hours, 3 to clean, and a couple to lay the tape.

God luck with the problem, it is correctable..

Brown = Rust, if it's in the shower stall, check the skylight!! As mentioned, Eternabond is the best answer to stopping leaks, just check for additional damage due to the water leak..

Eternabond your roof ASAP. I did it (see video below) and sleep well knowing it should never leak. Now the sides and lights and such, that is another story.
