Awning on 2017 Whitehawk 27DSRL

So just above the main door when it rains I get water that drips down. I can see it is not the awning as it is rolled up so I can see that it is coming from the small trough. So I put a small amount of silicone but it still drips, anyone have any thoughts.

I have the same issue right above the main door. However on mine the cause is obvious. It looks like when they installed the awning at the factory a screw was driven thru the gutter piercing it. They patched it with black caulk in the gutter and clear silicone caulk in the bottom of the gutter but it still drips. My concern is water penetration into the sidewall. It's on my warranty repair list after camping season is over.

i don't think any water is getting in the wall as it is coming on the outside of the trailer. Not sure I am going to do some water tests tomorrow to see if I can see exactly where it is coming from

Try raising the front off the trailer a little so the water flows to the back a little better. Also streetside of the trailer may a little low, put some boards under the streetside tires. Check to see that the gutter above and behind the awning isn't clogged up, forcing the water to drip before it gets to drain trough at the back.

I have a 2017 27DSRL as well and just recently experienced the same issue , in the same location you mentioned. It was a steady drip during a pretty hard rain.I haven't had time to check on the cause yet but this is beginning to sound repetitive. May just add that to my warranty list this fall.

Let me be the next to say that my 2015 Whitehawk 27DSRL leaks in the same spot. The dealership said they fixed it last winter but it still leaks this summer. When it cools down a bit I will go on the roof to check things out.
