Find and fix the leak, dry out the floor by exposing the wood and put a fan on it, and carry on. In the big picture, it's a small problem.

I did have that experience also. Maxxims are a great long term investment! Why AS continues to install such rubbish escapes me. Surely they must have had sufficient feedback by now. Don't they believe us - or is it just bottom line$? For what we pay, we should get expect and get better!

Quick leak fix ?

Has anyone tried the flex seal as advertised on TV on the roof and around the roof fans & areas of where a leak can occur ? It looks like it could work in a pinch . They make it in clear now too. My 05 leaks too .

I did not try flex seal but when I installed my fantastic fans/vents and went over the linear sidewall seals on my roof, I used a tape product called Dicor designed for metal roofs. It is neat and tidy at 2" wide. I still sealed the fans with the prescribed sealer but used the tape as a top cover after a few days of letting the sealer cure.

Flex Seal

I don't think the spray seal is a permanent repair but out on a trip and it begins to leak use it until you can return and make a more premanent repair . I was just wondering if anyone has tried using that and if it worked .I also used a product called butalflex used on metal buildings .
