Fiberglass Roof Leaks on Trilogy?

The very first post on the thread below, caused me a little concern. Note the picture on post #1, where the roof meets the cap. When re-did my Dicor a month ago, I put a bead down the molding/covers between the caps and roof, inside only. My concern then was of water getting under the cover. The exterior molding is painted and looked to be in tact, so I assumed it was leak proof. I also recall seeing a few ruffles/bubbles on one side where the roof bends down to meet the sidewalls.

Any other Trilogy 2013 & 2014 fiberglass roof owners seeing similar?

The link you posted isn't going where you want it to...I think!

I was up on my roof to stem a skylight leak. Roof looked fine on casual observation and there were no ruffles/bubbles around the front cap or sides where the skylight is located.

I will do a more extensive look later this month.

If my roof starts to crack I will go with the Roof Armor system. While I have not seen it in person, it looks like the best solution. Just like Line-X.

Fiberglass Roof Leaks on Trilogy?

Today I installed a window awning on the rear window. I had to move the ladder to the side. While on the roof securing and sealing the ladder, I figured I would have a look at the sealant. I found the sealant cracked at both the front and rear caps. It was cracked at the joint between the caps and the roof. I also found at least half of the screws holding the shower skylight were visible. I also noticed that quite a few of them had been over tightened and cracked the skylight. Even though we purchased this unit in April, it was a leftover 2014. When we bought it, I did get on the roof and check it over...apparently not close enough!

The skylight issue was a known issue back to 2013. You shouldn't have too much of an issue with factory getting you squared away with your dealer.

Below is a link to similar issues I found this summer when re-caulking. Inspect the caulk job the dealer does when they replace your skylight.

When I click on that link it goes to a topic called "thanks". I would like to see the pics you are talking about. I searched "roof warranty" and found nothing with that title.

I fixed the link to the where OP meant to link to.

OP the link is causing confusion as to what you are asking. It would be simpler if you posted pictures of where you suspect you are leaking. If you are seeing bubbles with soapy water then that is likely your leak point. A leak can happen on any trailer. All it takes is one seem needing a caulk touch up.
