A128 Leak

My A128 also leaked at the rear window. I took it back to the dealer and they applied the 3M Extreme Tape over all the rivets and rear window seams. I think it's fixed. I also talked to the Dealer and he said they have had trouble with sealing of those windows. They now seal under the window as well as caulking. They don't use rivets now. None of which does us any good.

The 3M tape looks pretty good and I think the problem is solved at least until the tape deteriorates.

The Tape is the 3M Extreme Sealing Tape 4412N, Acrylic Pressure Sensitive Adhesive, 2.5" Wide. It covers the rivets and seams pretty well. I also bought a roll at Amazon for $114 for an 18 yard roll just in case the fan ventilator leaks.

Let me know when your window comes in with/without rivets. Also how much did new window cost?

Any news on the fix to the rear window?
i just came back from a 2000 mile trip only to find that on our last day of camping we started having the dreaded roof leak in our trailer ... the lowest edge of the window sink side.
phoned my dealer and of course they said bring it in .. and they will recaulk the window ...however im thinking the external bond is the right way to go. Does anyone know if this fix has been issued by forest river to solve this problem .. or is it just a good dealer making sure to go the extra step.
i will be contacting FR to ensure this is covered under my extended warrenty/origional roof warrenty ...
thanks in advance .. d-mo

I had the same leak, took it back to the dealer and under Forest River warranty and as per Forest River instructions a special tape was applied (3M Extreme 2.5 inches wide). I also re-caulked the window before the dealer applied the tape. and it still leaked maybe through the rivets. I don't trust the caulk. The tape covers the rivets.

Currently it's not leaking nor do I expect it to, at least for a while.

Good luck and have fun,

Ken
