I installed 2-inch Eternabond around my rear skylight about a year ago. No leaks so far. I will probably end up doing the fronts eventually as well.

Well I just found a few leaks on my front skylights as well. When I bought my A122s last September the dealer decided to hide a broken corner on it with a huge gob of silicone, see photo. After peeling off the silcone blob I found the damage, see photo. If the dealer had told me about it then I would have had them install a new one. Needless to say I'm ticked off. Have ordered a new one and will install it in a few weeks. Get aload of the bead job they did. A blind man could have done a straighter bead than that crooked piece of crap.

Send these pictures to Forest River Warranty Rep. and tell her your story, she just might get it replaced at no cost to you. Won't hurt to try.

Unfortunately it was a used 2014 model so not likely to get any help from Rockwood. The dealer is at least looking at helping out. I just have to wait and see what they do.

Sorry, thought it was a new purchase. Too bad the dealer had to do that to a customer, I hope they try to make it right. Good Luck.

It may have been the previous owner's attempt to patch it.

I had a similarly bad experience with a Toppers and a cracked window. The replacement was done with about as much care as that bead and they also used silicone, which is a poor choice of materials for the purpose.

After it started leaking and I could get it back to them some time later, to my surprise, they took responsibility for the bad work and remove and reinstalled the window at no charge. This time using Decor sealant.


Many RV dealers, even of they have customer friendly management in a pinch, still cut corners when they can and haven't yet learned the lessons of total quality.
