3200 bht slide out roof issue?

Saw I was washing my roof off today to get rid of all the pollen and found a possible issue with the slides on my 3200 BHT. If you look at the top where the trim is screwed onto the slide out rooms, they did not put any eternabond tape or equivalent to cover the screws or the seam where the trim meets the rubber roof. After I was done washing and drying, I notices water dripping down from between the wall and the trim, it apparently leaked underneath. See pictures, these are all the top of the roof. Picture 1 is the water streak that ran down the wall. Picture 4 shows where the sealant tape stopped. Picture 2 shows the whole top with no tape and exposed screw. This is the same on all 3 slides. Very concerned with water.

The pictures would really help but unfortunately they don't appear. Perhaps you could try again. Here's a link to help with attaching photos... Forums 101 - posting, accounts, basics

Looks like an Oops to me as that has eternabond tape on our Rockwood. Have you contacted the dealer?

FYI - we do not put Eternabond tape over the entire seam of the slide-out T-Molding. A 2" wide putty tape is used under the entire molding including where the screws penetrate.
