Mine also leaks. So I'm curious to see what their fix is...

Not sure the seam sealer would be good on the awning material. It is meant for nylon and might damage the awning material.

Just to update everyone, Jayco response was that they didn't have any waterproofing for it and told me to take it to the dealership to be addressed.
This is their exact response:
"We do not have the proper water proofing solution here at Jayco. I would like to suggesting getting in touch with your selling dealer to have the issue address."
Note: In my original correspondence with Jayco, I asked if they could provide me with an applicable water proofing solution so I could take care of the issue myself.

We need to call our dealership to see what they have to say. We have a few other minor issues that we're hoping will be addressed while our trailer is still under warranty. Then it's a matter of coordinating a date to get the trailer to the dealership first so they can inspect the issues and then a 2nd time so they can fix the issues and coordinating the dates so that the trips to the dealership don't impact our current camping plans.

I'll post to let everyone know what the final resolution is.

Thanks everyone for the input, suggestions, & help.

One might try Aquaseal. Its designed for most vinyl, rubber, etc materials. Use it to repair my fishing waders and float tube. Most sports stores have it.

I found some posts on RV.net where a few people used Liquid Stitch Fabric Repair to seal the seams of their awning and said it worked well.
You can get it at Walmart or Jo-Ann Fabrics.

If I'm not satisfied with how the dealership resolves the issue, I'll look at using Liquid Stitch.

My stitching leaked like crazy on my new trailer. I went up on the roof and rubbed tent seam waterproofing on the stitches. Worked like a charm.

Carefree makes a seam sealer in a roller tube. Works great

Update on our DIY repairs:
Purchased 2 - 1oz tubes of VLP Vinyl/Leather Repair
Applied it to the seams on the inside of the awning and on the outside.
After letting it set overnight, did a water test, there were a couple spots that I missed and needed to go over.
After 2nd application to missed spots, no more leaks. So far it seems to work. Time will be the sure test.

Note: We have 2 awning on our trailer and 2 - 1oz tubes was sufficient to do both awnings. Though I want to get another tube to carry with me just in case I need to do spot repairs while camping.

FYI - We did called Dometic about it and they said the seams would seal themselves over time. Not sure how much time they think it should take because we're in our 2nd camping season with our trailer. So Dometic was of no help either.
