water damage

Maybe someone can give me some advice here- have a 2014 fr3 and have had water leaks that were hard to find. one on kitchen counter which was replaced and leak never found. The other water would after a rain and when the coach was moved water would run out on floor where slide was.
Leaks finally found to be that several windows had the seals incorrectly installed. Great we found the leak. Now on the outside bottom edge of the slide there is brown water seeping out. They took the siding loose and pried it open a little bit just enough to see that the wood bonded to the fiberglass is soaked-cant tell how far up. I am afraid that some time in the future I will have delamination problems not only on the slide but possible on other areas where the windows have leaked also.
Forest river rep tells me he will stand good for it if that happens.
I think I am surely looking at bad times down the road with my new motor home.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

If the wood is soaked then yes there is a possibility of delamination in the future. How long is hard to say. As far as FR "saying" they will stand behind any future repairs I think I would need that in writing. That's why I prefer doing business by email. It gives me documentation of all conversations eliminating his word against mine. I hope it all works out for you
