You should start a separate thread for this, since has nothing to do with this thread's title.
Also pics are more helpful, especially since there only a couple of 23B owners here.

bunk end water fix pipe cut

You should cut 90 degrees, or 1/4 of the pipe.

First, Thanks Pyxleys for sharing this. Great stuff.

My questions is, is there any reason a person couldn't just use a large piece of viynl and cover the entire door during travel and storage?

I envision duct taping the top of the vinyl to the rain gutter, just like Pixleys did, but instead of only a 4" piece of vinyl, use a piece big enough that it would cover the entire door all the way down below the bottom hinges and wide enough to cover the vertical seams (like a good quality inner shower curtain). Then use velcro to secure the vinyl to the trailer outside of the vertical seams and maybe on the bottom too (if necessary).

Anyone have any thoughts on this idea? I can't imagine water could get past that setup. Or does the PVC pipe (that would be left out in this setup) do something that I am missing?

For reference, see Pixleys photo below:

vinyl over door

I think you would need very thick vinyl for this, or it would easily tear in the wind. Otherwise, it should work.

We are having the same issue in our 2014 Roo. Find water every time in the channel inside the camper on the larger bed end. There is also an area of discoloration on the roof of the bed on the exterior in one area that seems to indicate water pooling on it for a long time. Very discouraged.

Hybrid RV Seal Cover DIY

Hi, my Hybrid is a North River, but this is what I did to my bunk ends to help protect them. This was a DIY project that I decided to do to give the seals a second layer of protection. Just a short video, let me know what you think.
