Leaky Bubble Window

Hi All,

I purchase a 2021 Rockwood A122S a month ago, which we had set up on our property through several rain storms with no leakage. That is, until a few days ago when we closed it up and had two days of rain. When we opened it up yesterday there was a wet spot on the fabric, just below the bubble window, over the bed. It's dry today, but I was wondering how best to address finding the point of entry and remedying the problem. If you have any suggestions or tips they'd really be appreciated.

Thank you!
Lauren

get up on roof look for potential leak spots


simulate rain with your garden hose.
remedy will be determined on what you find leaking

A folded A-frame trailer shouldn't need anyone to get ON the roof. Maybe a stepstool on the side.

Our 2021 T12RB (Flagstaff version of the A122) had a minor leak develop around the vent on a trip a month ago. When we got home, I found the factory sealant had a gap allowing water to seep in. I went ahead and resealed it and all the windows. I was surprised the factory sealant failed so quickly especially as it’s always been stored indoors.

Best thing to do is use Eternabond tape, 4 inch. The skylights are a weak link on any brand Aframe, they all end up leaking due to movement the sealant comes loose. I taped all three skylights and vent when mine was new before it ever leaked, now 5 years later all is still nice and dry.
