I have a 2012 Wildwood 32BHDS that we bought new last year. We have probably used it about a dozen times now, with absolutely no issues. This weekend, on our last night of camping, it poured, and I mean poured, for a few hours. All of a sudden we heard dripping in the kitchen area. Water was leaking from one of the radio speakers mounted on the ceiling. I am really freaked out by this, because I know a leaky roof can be death to a travel trailer in no time. My last TT, which was a brand new Jayco Jayfeather, also developed a roof leak after one year. I am getting really frustrated because I am VERY meticulous when it comes to maintaining and inspecting my travel trailer. I spent two hours on my hands and knees this spring, sealing anything that looked even remotely questionable on that roof. The trailer sat through day after day of rain recently (we live in WI) an has not leaked at all - I know because I am constantly checking it in bad weather to make sure. Are these trailers just built that poorly that they can develop a leak one or two years after manufacturing? Now, this was not a major flood inside the trailer - it did not even soak a dishrag that I put inside of a bucket under the leak, but I am still very concerned. Needless to say, I will be up on the roof ASAP looking for anything that looks fishy, but I can't see how there could be any sign of leak that I would not have seen earlier this spring. Should I contact the dealer, Forest River, or see if it happens again before I worry any more? To me, a newer trailer should NEVER leak, no matter how hard it rained or how "I was parked" as some have tried to tell me could have been the cause. HELP!!!
