On the up side, our dealer has been fantastic to work with so far.
Our trailer has been repaired, but not field tested yet. The dealer removed the skylight, took pictures of everything, and re-installed it. He's confident the water did not go anywhere else in the ceiling or walls, but had Coachmen add a year to our warranty as assurance. They tested it with a garden hose, and say it's all good. We took it out last weekend, but no rain (that's good I guess, but I'm anxious for a field test).
We also had water in the tracks of our slide-by windows, and asked the dealer about it since my old rig had different style windows. He said that is normal, but the new widows may have sawdust or other debris in the drains causing the water to pool more than usual. So I blew them all out with a can of compressed air (for electronics) and had no problems on the second trip.
