I also have a brand new hybrid and we got a good deal of rain Saturday. Yesterday I opened the bunk ends for the first time and noticed a small amount of water trickling down from the top of the seal over the window ends. Didn't see any water on the bed area at all. Is this normal? That is telling me that the mechanical seals themselves are leaking.
I thought I read somewhere that the new hybrids (or at least Roos which is what I have) don't have the rain gutter anymore, so there is nowhere to hang the PVC tubes. Am I correct?

Not sure about the very latest Roo builds. I was able to bridge the pvc over the seal area, the screws that attach the bunk door frame to the wall help to capture the pvc and keep it in place. You have to slide it to the side in order to remove. Many Roo owners are using a split hose to do the same thing. Its not really a separate gutter but is part of the bunk door frame. If your bunk ends looke the same as in photo it should work for you.

I will blame it on it needing time to season....several more showers and its stayed dry.

Spray the outside.


We didn't pre-season and let mother nature do it for us during our first outing and did get some water. Just got back from second trip where we had torrential rainstorm the first night. Not a drop got inside.

To help protect the bunk ends on our Hybrid that we no longer have I purchased solar blankets that were big enough to cover the top of the bunks and attached with clips from lowes that tighten on the bead to hold it on. This protects the end and also helps keep it cool.

You can also buy a product made for the bunk ends but they are a bit expensive.
