The dealer told me, so I checked with the Jackson Center and they told me the same thing. They said the leak would just run down the inside of the walls. If they're right or wrong, I'm still annoyed with having to drive back to the dealer so soon. But i get it now, that leaks are just part of the fun. Well, at least I can walk thru one of the Eddie Bauers.

Sure, some leaks might do this. But that doesn't mean any leak will work to your benefit. Didn't know that was an added value option, did you? Sounds like they're running damage control for the dealer -- maybe after they know you got the message to get it looked into.

I had an easy-to-find bow window/rockguard leak and fixed it myself (not always the case). Let the dealer handle this for you. And there still is the issue that not every warranty fix will be evident until your 'stream has been bouncing down the road at least a full season. Use your 2 years to maximum advantage and be very pleased about going back towards the end of the warranty period to set things right.

Got my trailer back from the dealer, they said there was an 1/8 of an inch gap by the top running light. I ran a hose and it seems fixed. Really I wont know until we get some serious rain again. Thanks all for the advice.

Well, we've had record rain and there's no more leaking, so I guess the dealer did a good repair job.

My "gap" was by the top bathroom vent.
