I have not seen any signs of water leakage. Does the water leak into the bunk ends when they are folded up? Have you checked the weather stripping along the top edge of the bunk?

I'll keep an eye out for this problem with mine, but so far so good. I'm not sure if FR changed the seals between 2015 and 2016.
I have 2016 183 and all 3 beds leaked on mine.

We have the 2013 183 and have never had a leak. Either 2014 or 2015 models came with a new style bunk latch that have garnered a lot of complaints of being flimsy and not compressing the seals adequately.

Inadequate Rain Gutter

My '09 Roo came with a tiny toy rain gutter. Just big enough to run off the dew that runs off the Roo every morning, but totally inadequate to deal with rain. I went to Home Depot and got some J flashing that sticks out about 2". I haven't had any trouble since I replaced the old gutter with flashing.
