You can look around to see if any other little items need help, you can save several trips that way.

We just took ours to get some warranty work and they suggested to make a laundry list of anything that might need fixing. I would request they treat the corrosion (if u have it by the tail lights) just to get it documented. Then after they fix it, double check their work (we learned this from experience).

Even though we want to put the new ones under shelter (if we have it) I have realized exposing your AS to as much rain, snow, water, and other elements is the way to go. Might as well find those leaks and weak spots while it's under warranty.

I don't doubt that the pano windows were originally built quite leak-proof. I've experienced rain leaks over the front windows twice and had to dig out caulk on the rail for the rockguards over the front windows. Do a thorough job removing the old caulk and then reseal with Sikaflex or Vulkem. Mask with tape to control the mess and then press and smear it in as well as you can. I haven't had to remove the rockguard rail yet and have succeeded with that.

I store under cover and still get this. The ultimate wisdom is, "They all leak."

As nickcrowhurst says, "The price of freedom is eternal maintenance."
