Condensation between the inner and outer skylight in the bathroom of my 233s

Hello,

I keep getting condensation between the inner and outer skylights in the bathroom of my 233s. After it builds up, it seems to run down the sides and seeps out of the inner piece. I'm worried about it possibly rotting out the wood around the skylight. Has anyone else had this issue and if so, any recommendations on a fix for it? Thanks in advance!

I have not noticed any condensation between the skylight. You have a good reason to be concerned. It may indicate a leak somewhere or the AC creating an issue. I would contact the dealer about it and see if they can inspect it or set your mind at ease about it.

I am not sure what year your trailer is, however there was a recall a skylight while back.

The issue was the sealant that was being used around the edge of the sky light reacted with the plastic and made the skylight brittle.

There are a number of threads that describe the issue on here.

I noticed condensation between the two panels in the skylight. I removed the inner panel and found damage to the roof plywood (see pics). I called my dealer and the damage was covered under the recall.

Damage was extensive. The entire roof was replaced, the front wall was replaced (where I park it it slopes forward) , 1/2 of the floor plywood, all of the vinyl floor, some wiring and plumbing(easier to replace then work around??)

If you suspect a problem get it looked at quick.

Barney1,

Mine looks the same way as in your pics. I hope I don't have all that damage in mine. I appreciate the time getting back to me and the pictures. Now I know I'm not the only one with this issue.

My Roo is a 2011. Where do I go about looking for recalls. I'm going to look into it asap.

Thank you for the information.

This is the first thread I saw about this issue.
It affects all models not just the one in the OP.

Skylight Recall - Suveyor Select SV264 2012

I hope this helps.

In 2012 Forest River went to a slightly rounded roof, previous models had a flat roof. They didn't support the roof correctly on some models. I have a 2012 FR 264 10th anniversary edition that I bought brand knew at the Show in Novi, Michigan. The first rain storm I could have taken a shower without running the water. It took 4 trips to the dealer before it got resolved. The trailer was flexing and cracking the outer plastic part of the skylight. (Or if you walked up there it would crack it) After the 3rd repair, I took the inner pieces off and checked it with a flashlight I found the problem and took it back to the dealer. They added support pieces and I have never had a problem since. It was covered under warranty.
