I can't stress the importance of a real good inspection of your trailer, especially new ones.

I picked up my 2012 Zinger ZT26BH a week ago. We had some real heavy rains this past week and noticed water pooling up on the drivers side night stand in the front bedroom. There was no signs of water from above or below. The carpet below the table wascompletelydry as was the cabinet right above it. Had no idea how the water even pooled up there.

Went outside and found the entry point. On the front cap where it meets the side wall the molding that runs down the length of the trailer is caulked. Well there was a gaping hole in the caulk almost directly behind the night stand.

I decided to check out both sides from top to bottom. I was really surprised when I found two more holes like this along the entire length.

I was under the impression from the Crossroads propaganda that each unit was pressure tested with a sealtech machine. One would think that the air coming out of these holes would hiss!!

Anyhow I patched all the holes with clear ProFlex.

Inspect, Inspect, Inspect!!!!
