We haven't had any leaks closed yet, but haven't towed in rain yet. I'm keeping a close eye on those as well. We also have a gap there but not as large.

Are you using clips at the upper edge of your PUGs? Thinking of using a long piece of velcro on the underside of the bunk end and sewing the mating velcro along the top edge of the PUG. I don't like the clips because it tends to squeeze the top seal. They are a PITA to get on correctly, but they do work well!

We do this same thing. Always try to visit potential campgrounds when it's pouring rain. Helps eliminate certain sites.

To the OP, glad to hear a positive story.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

This was my first time using them and yes we used the clips. the velcro idea sounds good. That would probably help them from sliding down too.

Our seal looks like yours. I am concerned as well. Luckily we haven't traveled in a rain storm but feel like rain could get in.
I'll be calling to get it fixed. I wish they used 1 seal all the way around.

We had shoddily installed seals on our '13 Roo. The dealer replaced all of them while still under warranty even though they didn't leak. The photo looks like a leak waiting to happen.
