Leak Not Covered!

Forest River will Not cover leak on my camper only a year and a half old camper.
Their should be no leak on a new camper. This seems like a manufacturer problem but they want to say it's a maintenance problem. That's sad they don't stand behind their product.

Well, with the grenade tossed now why don't you tell us what's leaking and post some pictures and maybe our experience here can get you squared away and enjoying your camper?

The wallpaper in the bathroom is bubbled on outer wall. There is no wet spots seems strange to be a leak.

only warranteed for a year. after 1 year, it is on you. Proper inspections and annual resealing might have helped

Any water out of any of those blisters at any time? The vinyl wall covering is just adhered to the veneer wood substrate and it's not unusual for there to be gaps in the adhesive. Changes in humidity can cause the vinyl to lift as well as a leak.

That's a good sign!

I see you have an R-Pod 178 so that's in the wet bath then. Only takes a pinhole in the wall covering to let the humidity and moisture from showering cause that, especially where the adhesive wasn't even. Do the blisters appear larger after a shower?

Do note that R-Pods require regular roof inspection and maintenance per every owner we have ever met in our travels. Owners have said sealant around the roof vents cracks pretty easily. That's really true of lap sealants in general. Since you haven't had obvious water, chances are less that you have an actual leak.
