Hit the send button to quick.

My problem is that the slide out's roof that is over the headboard of the bed has a crown in it causing the water to pond near the gasket and I assume seep under the gasket and into the bedroom.

The gasket's themselves look fine.

Any Thoughts!!!


Thanks, Jim

The easiest fix would probably be to keep the slideout side of the trailer maybe a half inch lower than the other side to see if it would drain. Shouldn't hurt anything.

Do you have slideout awnings? If not, they'll keep the water off.

When you bring the slide in and out, is there any indication that it is out of adjustment? The side wall and top should hit the gaskets pretty much at the same time and should "crush" fairly evenly. If the top hits first, the slide could be on an angle and need adjustment.

No slide out awnings yet. I have to learn my 6 point landing system better, to learn how to tilt the camper 1/2 in.
The slide out seems to go in and out properly.
The main issue is what looks to be that the underlayment/plywood that is under the TPO roof material is to wide and is bowed up in the middle.

No rain for the next week in Myrtle Beach so I will have some time to get this corrected.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will update when we get a fix.

Jim

I don't want to seem insensitive here...but how far are you from your dealer or have you contacted CR to see if you could get a mobile tech out to look at it. I'm assuming it's under warranty if it's a Washington. With what you've paid, I would get all I can out of my warrantywhile it's still in effect. JMHO.

Jim -- I don't know about you ,but I would not want to tilt my camper to one side or the other because there is a defect in manufacturing. If the slide roof has a bow in it, it was made wrong. That roof should be flat. I would either take it to the dealer and have them take that slide off the camper, and fix it, or take it back to the factory, if you don't feel the dealer is able to do that big of a job.

You have a new camper there, and an expensive one at that. I would not want it to get a half fix if it was mine. IMHO

Gotta agree with Tator447 and SleepyT here. If it is under warranty, I'd get it repaired under warranty. Even if it is slightly out of warranty, I would be awfully loud about it.
