I have a Flagstaff TT 831BHSS and I have a leak at the skylight. I have removed the inner part of the skylight which shows the foam inserts. I have slight water damage in the corner of the ceiling and wall. Before removing the inner part of the skylight, I had a lot of condensation in the skylight. I can't find any damage to the seals of actual skylight. Has anyone had this problem with condensation, and what did you do?

Are you sure it's not leaking from the outside? It doesn't take much of a crack in the caulking to leak. If it is condensation from the inside the best thing you can do is dry the unit out as much as possible and seal the inside and put it back up. After repairing any damage of course.

We have a Rockwood 8313ss that had been leaking from what I thought was the skylite in the shower. We took it to the dealer and they checked the seals around the skylite and re-caulked. Then we still had water (condensation) in the skylite and back to the dealer it went. Of course after 2 trips to the dealer it was still leaking and my husband got up there and re-caulked again. Still water and condensation so back to the dealer and they put it on a Pressure machine and found our leak was actually coming from the front of the camper and traveling the 31 feet to the skylite and leaking at that point. So they fixed all the seals on the unit at our expense because we were told that seals are not covered by our warrenty. Now the BIG downside of the whole incident...It took about 10 months to find the real cause of the leak and now we have delamination on the side of the camper and it has to go back to the manufacturer to be replaced. However, that may not be such a bad thing because it has been about 3 weeks since the dealer "fixed" the seams and I still have condensation in the skylite so we called the dealer to let them know that their "fix" did not fix the problem. They said at this point it is scheduled to go to Indiana on April 23rd and that when we get the unit back it should be better than new. Here's for hoping...

I agree with lori8360- look at all of the seals. Water may be coming from another area of the roof.
