Wet bed ends on 23ss roo

I have a 2010 Rockwood Roo 23ss and where the bed mattress and beding meets the cloth on the bed ends gets wet. Very WET, enough to get the mattress wet too. I have had a leak fixed on top when driving but still have wet beds when raining. I have had it is twice now and now they are saying its a tent and they all leak. lol... This is not caused by condenstation. No one in the trailer and no heat and is dry all around. It looks like it is coming from the seam threadin that goes under the windows all the way around the ends. The last time the dealer had it they put on seam sealer inside and out but still wet. I have had two popups in the past and i now about getting the seams wet first. These now have been wet eight times. Has any one had the same problem with a fix? I guess the next thing to do is to try to get ahold of Forestriver for help.

I had/have the same problem with my 2011 Roo 233s. Looked like it was seeping through the bottom window seams. Dealer apparently put something on it to seal the seams, but I have yet to use the trailer. Did it right before I put it in storage for winter I figure it's still under warranty, so if it leaks again, I'll take it back. It was never a lot of water, but enough to get the mattress. Hope to have it out in the next couple of weeks...not that I'm asking for rain, though Good luck.

that's a bummer. When you say 'they' do you mean the dealer?
If your dealership won't help you, call FR.

I had this issues last night/this morning as well. I'm pretty sure it's just condensation, but certainly annoying. We had our heat on as well as the mattresses.

Update... Talked to the dealer and they now tell me "its a tent and that they all leak" And they are no longer going to work with me on this problem. So now need to call FR to see what is going to happen next. It is a bummer that every time i go camping and it is raining (Oregon Coast) when i get home i have to take out the bedding and mattress so they will dry. Does anyone have a PH for Forest river. cant seem to find in on there web page and the dealer would not give me a PH. must say i am a bit upset

So the fabric on the bunk end isn't wet? Because the bolded makes it sound like the fabric is getting wet and making the beds wet.

I had the same exact issue over the weekend. The fabric was wet which made the mattress wet. In MY case, it is condensation from the heated mattress and the 40 degree weather outside.

Edited to add, it was only wet an inch or so above the mattress to the bottom of the mattress.

I had this problem with my 08 23SS. Read on another board about putting this silver insulation under the mattress to reduce the temperature difference between under the bunk and inside the tent. Seems to have worked for me. No more moisture.

that number is not worth calling.

contact Gregg Rollins via email, at FR.
i think it's "grollins@forestriver.com".
he's the warranty guy for Roo/Shamrock.
tell him how your dealer is treating you.
he responds to emails quicker than phone calls.

my tent ends have never leaked and it's ridiculous for the dealer to say that. he needs to stop selling popups and hybrids if he's not going to support the product.
