I guess I spoke too soon. They just called me because they are trying to get authorization to lift my rubber roof to fix the the aluminium flashing that is along the top edge of the walls.

Good luck with that. I have the same issue and apparently a lot of people do. FR denied the warranty repair saying its just cosmetic and does not affect the performance of the fiver.

I hear ya. I noted the issue a month after I took delivery and I told the dealer that I heard it popping and now they are going to photo it and resubmit it to FR.

The same thing happened to my roof and I was able to get my dealer to contact FR and they finally agreed to pay to have the dealer repair the problem. The roof looks great now but I still have water leaking into my front cap. FR refuses to do anything about the water leaking problem but I think that they should. I wished that I was rich enough to afford a lawyer because I would take FR to court on this problem. There are too many of us having this leaking problem for this not to be something that the factory screwed up. But I will just have to keep looking until I find and fix the leak problem.

Has anyone had any luck fixing the leaks on the front cap. I am still chasing my leaks down and I have not found the problem yet. Guess that I will keep looking.

Mine is still dry. I posted the fix, I believe, but they pulled the sealer, said they didn't like the way the rubber roof was folded in, fixed that, then resealed it side to side.

We found one last little leak, the side marker light at eye level was filling up and letting water run in past the bulb. Both lights were sealed up, so far it's been bone dry.

I completed the repair to the seam just as you showed and I am still getting water in the Nose. Guess that I will keep looking.

Well darn, that sucks. Have you checked the clearance lights near the top of the cap? I would also closely inspect the entire cap for any cracks.

I wish you the best of luck my friend. Sorry can't be of more help.
