Im kinda new here but always looking to help other ppl and get help my self
any way we Purchase our 2008 17 Roo last year at the end of the season and never look at the roof and never did any research on it ( ok we didnt think )
it does looks very nice inside tho.
So we only used it one time. we notice when we used it, it rain during the night and found out our mattress got wet on the bottem side
so the way we see it, the rain gets between canvas and rubber seal and makes it way down to where the hinge is, and water fellows the canvas inside
what are we doing wrong? and we dont use the heated mattress
so today after checking the roof I notice that the bathroom vent seal was in very poor shape and lifting on one side. I removed the vent and notice around the vent the wood was in poor shape. I try to reinstall the vent but the screws didnt hold. (so i removed the vent) to I scrape some foam out underneath and used some 3/4 plywood (2" thick) as a bracket to screw into. used some new putty to seal it up with new self leveling sealant on the out side . when I scrape out the foam I notice that screws where in the roof joint so thats why they never hold in the first place.
heres a pic to check out
so Im hoping the fix holds
the next fix is those tail lights above the bunk ends (going to reseal them)
so any info on preventing the mattress from getting wet would be great thanks
