We have a nice metal shed/pole barn to store our Roo under. However, after reading all the leaky bunk seals, especially on the front bunk here I decided to leave her out in the rain. We got hammered with maybe 5 inches of rain yesterday and this morning...and yep I had water in the camper! I was freaking out some.
I called my "local dealer" in Ft. Pierce, Florida and they trouble shot the problem over the phone with me. Guess what? I had a 3 inch piece of the tent flap on the bunk end stuck between the inner black seal! It was soaked. All the other bunk ends were fine. The service tech told me this is the leading cause of the leaky bunk seals, fabric and those little nylon chords getting hung up in the seals while packing away. Lesson learned and want to pass along to all the newby owners here. He told me even a leaf in the seal will cause the things to let water through. They need to be clean and free of debris before closing up the bunk ends.
I also asked about water penetrating the bunk end side panels. One person posted this question here the other day. I asked if this ever was an issue and if there is a water proofing fabric protectant like for Sunbrella or something we could apply to the material. First, he has never had this as service issue ever. He said the seams are factory sealed and 303 makes a Sunbrella UV protectant and water repelliant spray we could use but it is not necessary.
