Maybe everyone who is still having this issue should send an email expressing their concerns. Good luck. I hope we are closer to a resolution with this.
Good luck getting him. I got him on the phone once and that was an accident I believe. No response to voicemail or email.

RV World in Buford? They're getting mine this weekend.

Took a bit longer to get it up there, but it's now in the hands of the dealer to decide how to fix the water getting in the cap that I complained about over a year ago. They said it would take about a week to get it in, so hopefully we will see what happens from there.

Ask to be notified if or when the cap is removed. If as you say the water has been there for some time you will have water damage. It also should be removed to be sure all is completely dry. With the cap removed they should be able to visually see the water tracking. Be sure to go to the shop and look at the unit while it is opened up. Take your camera or phone with you.

I'm going up there this afternoon. I called yesterday to see if they thought I would be able to pick it up by the 13th, left a message and as expected, no return call. So I'm going to stroll in, just for chuckles.

I got my fifth wheel back today. The repairs I made with Eternabond tape along the top of the cap where it meets the EPDM has worked. FR sent a repair tech to my dealer to re-install a new fresh water tank, mine fell put, he looked at the leak and could not find one. When I picked it up today there was zero water leaking out and we've had a tremendous amount of rain lately.

My advice is this. Buy a role of 6" Eternabond tape and a roller and tape the seam from gutter to gutter.

I just found water leaking from my front cap today when I raised the camper to hook up to it. The 2015 Sierra 330 5th wheel had been setting for the past two weeks and we have had some real heavy rains during that time. We have had this camper for over a year now and this is the first time that I found water coming out like this. We had a leak from the front of the camper with water coming into our front closet and the dealer fixed that problem. But our first year warranty has run out and I do not know if the dealer or FR will fix this under warranty. I did get the 2nd year extended warranty from FR but I don't know if it covers leaks like this. I may try to call FR to see what they say. The water was leaking from what I guess you would call the cap seal just in front of the storage compartment on the drivers side of the camper.

If you call FR ask to talk to Scott Hunt. He works on the Sierra side. I think they have a serious design flaw that needs to be dealt with. Good luck.
