Thanks for sharing your experiance. I have to pick up my new tt in 3 weeks and I wouldn't have thought to look on the roof. I really hope mine is ok though because I have to travel 1,100 to get it.

Water leak!

Just found the exact same issue with my 23K!

I had read about this issue before taking possession of ours in May. There was no indication of a problem at that time. But last night, I took a look at the roof while I was washing my trailer after our trip out East.

I'm not sure when this problem first developped. I'm hoping that this was caused by this week's heat?

But as you can (sort of) see in the picture, the front wall of the trailer is slightly uneven. Is this normal? Or is it a sign of water damage?

Calling the dealer now....

Why is it only the 23K models seem to be suffering from this problem?

The fellow that repaired mine had never seen a roof with an aluminum strip like that and refused to put another one on. I was "lucky" when it was discovered that the original repair that the Jayco dealer did caused some tears in the roof membrane, which meant that the whole thing had to be replaced. When he did, he used the standard, usual plastic strip that was designed and intended for this purpose. Discovered some interesting policies that Jayco has with it's dealer network along the way - I understand now why the original dealer was so reluctant to do a proper repair ($$). Again, I was lucky - moving to Vancouver Island made using a Jayco dealer rather difficult as there aren't may on the island.

Looks much neater and clean. Good job on getting a better(IMHO) than factory repair.
