I'm ticked off

Picked up 2016 183 a couple of weeks ago and just had our first heavy rain storm..... all 3 beds leak and it looks like it's comming top seal area and working it's way down. I thought they got this figured out already. Not impressed with shamrock latching system.

Did you season the tent ends first?

Make sure there is no tent fabric caught in the door. The camper should have seen some wet weather between date of manufacture and now. You do have a warrantee issue. Just see if it was an owner oops first.

Did a test myself with a hose with door in closed position and it leaked.

I thought that choosing a hardside would eliminate possible leaks, but not so lucky. My new Flagstaff has a leak around a roof window.


Oh well..................

All 3 are leaking? That seems crazy...something has to be closed in there??? Mine don't leak a drop with the new style seals. To have all 3 leaking seems nearly impossible if they are closed right. I sure hope it is something simple like that.

My first move would be to remove all mattresses, do the fantastic fan close carefully tucking fabric, and retest.

I did test with mattress removal and do the fantastic fan trick. It just seems the plastic hinge system doesn't compress that well. Is there any type of adjustment?
