Earthgirl - sounds like they are trying. Hopefully everything will work out. Glad you got a loaner. Let us know what/where the leak issue is. Enjoy your trip and safe travels!

That really sucks! It sounds like they are taking care of it. I would guess that the water is coming from the tinted roof window, when I was looking at a few of the campers on the lot, one had a leak and was already causing damage. Forest River said they are switching to a new type of gasket material to correct this.

My camper is still dry but I have stress cracks on each corner of the window from the rivets being to tight. I sealed everything, but the dealer is going to replace the window and use the new gasket.

I really like my camper and as long as the dealer takes care of it, I will maintain my sanity.

Mike G, or anyone else, what type of caulking do you use to seal everything? Do you just go around and add new sealant as you would do for a house window? You don't try to remove it like the bath tub, do you?

My a126 is an early 2011 model. I've heard of the leaks around the window. I read somewhere there was a recall for new seal. I hope it's been applied to my a126.

Best of luck... I'll keep a close eye on mine.

I went to a RV show this weekend and a few of the Rockwood A-frames had different set-ups on the window, some had rivets in the corners and some did not; They all had bad caulk jobs!

I did get a chance to compare an A-Liner to the Rockwood and I was not impressed with the A-Liner. I just hope that when I get my window replaced at the dealer, they do a good job.

Mike,

Does yours have the rivets? I'm wondering if mine has the new seal. mine has the rivets (and sad looking caulk job). The rest of the caulking seems much better around the camper leading me to think the window was done at the dealer.

Has anyone done any caulking at home on their A-frame? What type of caulking would you use? Basic silicone from hardware store?

We are unable to keep our camper at our house (steep road and HOA regulations).

Because it lives in our community campground/storage area. We check our RV several times a month to make sure nothing has happened to it...especially after a rain storm or ice and snow.

I look for damp or discolored areas around the windows, vents, doors, ramp door (toy hauler) and around the ceiling. I even check inside cabinets...you just never know where water damage will show up. Takes only a few minuets to do and I can make sure "all is well". Also look for evidence of bugs or mice.
