Bubble in 2019 2509 slide wall

I sealed all the marker lights since I've read a lot of water leaks from them. I just found a bubble in the slide wall. I have a slide topper which overhangs the slide so I don't think it's from rain water getting in.

Anyone seen this in a 2 month old trailer?

It's hard to see what you're pointing at, but that doesn't look like typical water intrusion delamination.

If you press on it, is it soft or spongy?

Yes, I know it's hard to see in a pic. Yes, doesn't look like normal delam. Trailer is 2 months old so every issue it new to me and I have nothing to compare to.

It's very slightly spongy but sounds hard when knocking on it.

I wasn't sure if someone knows if it could happen during the lamination process. Not enough glue or something.

Thank you

That does look like a manufacturing variance (booboo) rather than delam.

I'd have the dealer look at it and/or send pictures to the Rockwoood warranty dept.

I also have a 2 month old 2104S that has several bubbles. Changes with the temperature. Sure looks like a boo boo to me. Canít wait to see how this is handled. Looks like a major rebuild of the entire slide out.

I have seen this before. We looked at a 2018 Rockwood 2706ws that had this in the back outside wall. The dealer said it was an error in the lamination process and would not be an issue. We passed on that unit and bought a different one they had on the lot with no blemishes.

Yeah, I'm afraid the repair/fix will mess up more things than it fixes.

Might as well add the driver side roof edge material to your list. Seems like a few of them (including mine) are not glued down well. It seems to get worse in 80-90 degree weather.

And I have to check my fresh water tank. I filled up at the campground a couple days ago for my first trip and it seems to be too heavy for the supports. Thought they reinforced it a couple years ago but need to drop the underbody panel when I get home.

SEAL ALL THE MARKER LIGHTS with Proflex when you get it home. Known issues of leaking and delamination under the front marker lights.

I've been a nervous wreck the first month of owning it. My wife wants to put me on medication.

Now that we've camped in it a few nights I feel much better. Everyone says Rockwoods are better than other brands so I'd hate to see their issues.

Was reading through the Flagstaff forum since they’v Got the same line and it seems there were some batches of units that had bad glue and are having delamination issues. Sounds like RookWood is handling these issues and will even come pick up the unit and bring it back. One user said the process and repair was great all things considered. Here the thread: http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...-162524-2.html

The tank issue was not corrected on my 2018 Rockwood 2304KS. Until I corrected it.......
