Bunk doors

I have a 2013 233s everyone I put the front bunk door up after it rains water pours out of the bottom and runs down the front of the camper, but the side bunk or rear bunk does not do this, could there be a problem or is this normal?

not exactly sure what you're asking, when you say "everyone".
the difference between the front bunk and the other two, is that the front one is raked back while the other two are vertical.
therefore, the front bunk will be more likely to retain more rain because it's tilted back while the other two will retain less since theey are vertical.
plus, the front bunk tent end is longer than the other two.

and are you talking about the trailer sitting open in the rain or after driving thru the rain?

Oops I mean every time, I close the front bunk door after it rains a ton of water comes out of the front bottom part of the door but the other two it does not, I think they would retain the same amount of water if there all open.

I have never seen what you described with water pouring out of the front bunk after it rains. Strange. Do you have the new or old style bunks? My 233S is older and has the old style bunks, too, so feedback from someone with your model year will help.

Does it look like there is any water damage? Where does the water seem to be stores that it pours out when you close the bunk?

I might take it into my dealer for them to inspect. They should be able to replicate the issue using a garden hose. Taking it in also starts the documentation process if there is an issue down the road caused by this water.

Talked to the dealer today, they are replacing the front bunk door under warranty due to the rivets beeing pushed in to far, when they popped the rivets in the bent the framing of the food in, dealer states they should not be an issue with new bunk door. I hope not :/

Same Bunk Door Drain issue

We just encountered the same issue on our front and back bunk doors of our 2013 233S. Just got back from a week in Acadia and it rained two days. When we closed the bunk doors to leave, water poured out of the bottom of the bunk door at each corner of the hinge. My concern is that water somehow got into the bunk doors.

Urocav2001 did the replacement of the bunk door go OK?

Luckily we paid for the extended warranty but it sounds like we might have to replace the bunk doors. Should we contact our dealer or Forrest River directly?

you need to start with the dealer first.
a number of things need to checked before you jump to the conclusion that you'll need new bunk doors.
FR would tell you to go to the dealer first.
