New 2012 W&P 16 UL

Hello, maybe I'm doing something wrong but not an active forum?
Anyway, I have had my new W&P for 5 days now, one night out camping, and it rained and I have a water leak that appears to be around the furnace. The outside furnace exhaust vent does not have caulking like the hauler I'm selling has.
I'm concerned about doing any repairs myself since FR may say I did something wrong or caused the problem. Guess I'll take it back to the dealer to check the entire left side of the unit????
Any thoughts
Anyone have this same unit?

I don't have the same model but my exhaust vent has a bead of silicone caulk along the top between the vent and the side of the trailer. I think the rest of the vent is sealed with butyl tape. That said, if the dealer is not too far away I would take it back to the dealer and have them fix it . A very minor leak can cause damage to the wood cabinets near the floor.....
