Thanks! That is a nice look. Boggles the mind why they stopped adding them. An ounce of prevention....

Why all these units aren't supplied with these gutters on the front and rear I will never know. I understand the roof is bowed, but there still can be a considerable amount of water running down towards the bunk end fabric.

I had the same water leak problem with the bed ends in my 2015 23IKSS, with the front having the more severe leak.
I used RV silicone sealant to entirely fill the gap between the gasket at the top of the frame and the gaskets that run down each side of the frame. Then placed a 1/8" thick by 1/4" wide rubber gasket material onto the outer edge of the existing rubber gasket along the top and sides. So far .... no leaks on the canvas or to the interior of the bed end.

Leaking bunk ends is no fun. I've been lucky no leaks on my 2012 23SS.

At the end of the day it's a warranty issue. Let the dealer fix it until you're satisfied. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Roo bed end leak

I made an appointment with the the dealer to provide the needed service and drove the 1 1/2 hours to get there. They had the unit for 3 months and did absolutely nothing.

Rockwood 2013 Bunkend Leak Fix

I have a newer 2013/2014 Rockwood Roo and have the leak issue. From my experience and research, this is caused by the black seals shrinking over time and not sealing at the ends of the seal. I came up with a $3.20 fix that I am testing. I'm posting this now and will update it at a later date after some good rains. See pictures below:


Part # from Lowes: 15437 Vinyl J Bead 1/2 Inch x 10 Feet


Final product covers the top section where the leak takes place


Place the product on top of the door and measure. Cut to bend over the corners and then trim to fit into the latch areas.




Bend and slide behind the locking sections



The idea is to protect the sealing area between the flat surface of the bunk end and the sealing surface of the black seal that is part of the trailer.

Like I noted, I'll update on how this works in the near future. I also plan on adding some velcro or bungee cables to secure this during a storm and or for traveling.
