If the dealer did it, YES!

I'd make sure of it if I was you because it is what you paid for

Dealer is checking with FR about this as the same think happened that the recall was supposed to fix. If I have to do this replacement myself what do I use to clean the old sealant off the roof?

Lol that's why I asked about a bigger picture.
Looks like a max air cover to me not a shower skylight.

That would be a bathroom dome issue.

It is the dome over the shower, there was a recall on them and the dealer replaced it last year, the one they took off had no sign of cracks but they were just following the recall now the one provided by the recall is cracked and leaking. The white is the cracks I put some silicone on them for now, DW just said we should leave it till we go to Goshen and get it fixed while we are there.

That would be the best course of action.

It was a recall, so he didn't have to pay for it directly.

It shows a crack in the shower dome probably looking in a different direction. The MaxxAir cover is also shown.

I replaced mine, and didn't involve a dealer. I'd better crawl up there and look...

Out of pocket, perhaps not but he paid for it just as all of us have paid for as near as can be defect free trailer.
