Question I think I figured out my leak.

I went to my camper storage because I left one shoe in there from Labor Day There's a Roo parked 3 spots from me. I looked at mine, and I can see the screws along the seal.



Here's the other Roo, no screws:


And here's my bubbling - sorry it's not the best picture, it's overcast today.


Any thoughts on who I should contact, or is it not their problem? And how should I fix this?

Yes it looks like there isn't a tight seal on that door when it is closed. Definitely could be the source of water. Is the mattress getting wet?

I haven't noticed, we've been in drought conditions this summer and we didn't camp much. BUT when we went camping at Disney in December, we ran into rain in the Smoky's and the mattress was not wet when we stopped for the night. I did slide my hand under the mattress and behind it when I grabbed my shoe and it wasn't wet and it rained heavy last night and light rain on and off today.

Is the screw the big blob almost halfway up the photo? I'm with triguy...will check mine out tonight. I don't recall anything along the seals, but it is worth checking. We've also had the 21ss open and closed during some long overnight rains, and no leaking. (Knocking on Head).

Yes. All the screws are like that on both sides. I'm not sure about the back or side, I didn't think to check since those beds aren't having the issues. I think I may go camping this weekend and get a better look at everything, but our schedule is crazy now with dance and hockey.

Anthonymu - yes my 2009 did the same thing in early 2011 so it was still new when we didn't tarp it the second winter and water got in through the top and side of the side bunk door rotted the mattress and flooded the floor and the entire back. Rear bunk leaked as well. It is the way the doors are put on. All 3 doors looked different with the spacing along the bottom hinge area and the bottom corners. Each bunk door seems to be put on different. Mass production / assembly line?
