Maiden voyage update

Just back from our first trip with the Roo. Had a 4 hour downpour two nights ago. Bit of seepage from the vertical bunk end seams on one end, nothing major considering the amount of rain.

Real problem was lack of caulking in the hole for the awning leds/power awning wires. Water was running down the awning channel, onto the wires, thru wall, and onto floor in the storage area under entertainment center. Had a really nice puddle of water on the floor at 4 am!
Thru hole for the wires was only half caulked. Hole was open enough I can see daylight from the inside. It's been completely caulked now and shouldn't be a problem.

I'm always amazed at how rain can find a way to get inside!

Everything else with the trailer worked great and without issues. DW even baked cinnamon rolls and pizza in the oven with sucess!

Ready to roll again.

Congrats on the first trip! Rain does find every single entry point LOL. I would try and keep that area opened up and let it dry out completely before closing it up for storage.
