Hi REV. Welcome to the forum.

Pulled the PUP out into the driveway and set up. Good rain for 24 hours. Op checked the heater, Micro, lights, radio.

Prolly will de-winter and sanitize water system and op check plumbing tomorrow. Pretty neat.

I would suggest you also check the side bunk panels for leaks. You will notice that Rockwood uses a different fabric for the side bunk ends than any other tenting. I think it was used to allow the unit to better breath. Some people have experienced some leaking on them as some fabric must have less repellent than others. Just a slight manufacturing oversight/defect. It is easily fixed with some Kiwi Camp Dry HD water repellent spray.

The point is to check it in the driveway under controlled conditions and fix it before you find yourself in a bad storm camping.

I checked mine and it was fine but I will be keeping an eye on it.

Vin.

Yeah read all about the leaking issues here so sticking it out in the rain in the driveway was a chance to ring it out. The only issue I saw after 24 hours of steady to moderate rain was leaks on one corner due to a portion of the tenting sagging and pooling water. Seems the tenting is bunching at the top edge and not taught. The other three top edges real tight and no leaks noted.
