2016 27RKSS Ceiling leaking

Hey guys, just bought a new Forest River Wildwood 27RKSS about 6 weeks ago, I have a leaky shower head and a stabilizer bar issue, last night saw the ceiling in the bedroom directly over the shelf above the bed is leaking. Anyone else having these issues? Also if so does the rv dealership have to warranty the leak? It's a nice camper but thinking about asking to trade in for a new one, the ceiling leaking is the deal breaker with me. Anyone else having issues especially with the ceiling leaking? Thanks.

Haven't had any leaks yet. Our 2014 195bh we had did leak at one of the top clearance lights. It soaked the front wall. It will should be covered under warranty. Good luck.

Now I'm going back to looking for my 10mm wrench! 2016 Wildwood 27RKSS

It's a warranty issue. Now actually getting it repaired in a timely manner may be another story.

I'd suggest climbing up on the roof and seeing if you can tell where the leak is. You may want to go ahead and cover it up until the dealer can get to it, or if it's something simple you may want to go ahead and fix it yourself.

We've had our new 27RKSS for around a year now so far no problems. Been on 9 trips and about 2500 miles or so. Sorry you are having issues.

We've had ours for just over a year and four trips. Had a leak under the bathroom sink (hot water line was not tightened fully). Been flawless otherwise.

Took first shower and the ground was wet below city water hook up. Thought nothing of it. Slow leaking Hose?! I just happened to look under and the under cover /insulation was soaked! Come to find out the connection behind the shower knobs was leaking all over the place and collecting under the shower!
I know they need to get units out but a little quality control sure would be appreciated!!
