Angry 2013 192T Sport leaks....

We have a new trailer (only used it once) and we have had water come in both bed ends. We pointed out to the dealer that it appears that there are 2 screws missing from the drip rail at the top, they say this is not so. However when we look at 2012 and 2014 year models of the same trailer, there is a screw in the exact location that we think we should have one. Can anybody please count the number of screws on their 2013 SP192T models' drip rails (front and rear) and let us know. There is so much damage to ours that the dealer is replacing both doors. We did so much research before we purchased this trailer, including reading this forum, that we felt we were buying the very best trailer available.....but we are certainly not feeling that way now.

Sorry that I can't answer your question as I have a different unit. It might help if you can post a picture or two. Hopefully others will be dropping by to offer feedback.

two questions first:

1. are you sure this water isn't condensation, a common issue with hybrid and popup canvas ends?
2. did you follow the canvas manufacturer's instructions and wet the tent seams down and then let them dry, before going camping?

these are much more common causes of water in the tent ends, that what you're describing. not saying that yours isn't from something else, just trying to eliminate the more common causes.

We moved up from a hard top tent trailer to this trailer. We are fully experienced with tents. It definitely leaks on both ends. It is currently temporarily repaired (by the authorized Forest River dealer) and it still leaks! It is clearly missing screws in the drip edges both front and rear on the right hand side, between the middle screw and the outside screw- see attached photos. After closer inspection it is missing 3 fasteners inside on each side on each cable support on the front bed door. The rear door has ALL fasteners attached. Which is why we believe that there are fasteners missing. This has twisted the metal substructure (in my opinion) in the front, causing the leak. We are still unsure of the cause of the leak in the rear. Which is why we are looking for an answer to our original question-
How many screws are in the drip rails?
And now- How many screws in the cable support for the front bunk?
If anyone can help on this, it would be greatly appreciated as we try to resolve this.
