It has the older twist locks that require a T-bar key to lock. So we lock them. I looked at the seal last night and it is good, but I don't think they relaced it with the correct type when comparing it to the front bunks. Putting a second seal on the bunk door itself sounds like a good idea.

I contacted Jayco, but because I was the second owner they would not do anything for me. If you are the original owner, I would contact them they might help you out. The weather strip worked great for me. If you need pictures I can take a few and send them to you. let me know

Can you send some pics of the weather stripping? I assume you are using a simple weather strip on the bunk bed board itself. So you have a seal to seal contact when seal is closed.

The weather strip is 1/4'' Wide and a 1/8'' thick I am attaching some pictures. Its pretty simple, stripping around the edge of flange. The stripping is grey so you should be able to see it.

We had a hybrid for years.. The hybrids are designed with a kind of track area behind the seals that allows any water that gets in past the seals (while in transport mode ) to run down and exit next to the hinge at the bottom. The dealership showed this to us.. And after that I made sure that this area was kept clear. If you look at the canvas on your unit right whe it meets the hinge.. You will see this exit groove. Finding out about this caused us to make sure that area was kept clean and also helped us to not over react if a few drops of water got passed the seal. We also had our seals replaced on our unit and payed the dealership to do this.. For which they charged us $1200.00. If you keep a close eye on this and make sure you check it and dry it after trips.. You can avoid damage.
Ideally no water should come in... But I have hears from others as well, that when travelling in heavy rain it can happen.

crud, i've got some of that out in the shop! i could make that happen today.... i'm going to replace my funky soft seal that came OEM with the newer, rubber seal... then add the weather stripping to the bunk end, and call it good...

not getting any leakage, but that standard seal is already falling apart on ours... why would they not use a rubber seal? or at least one a bit more durable?

Can someone please post pictures of the weather stripping inside?
I also have a 2008 23B with some water damage on the front bunk end near the hinge.
Thanks.

bunk end leaks

Would someone be able to post pictures of their fixes? I have a 2008 23B (used) and just noticed some funny looking wood on the front bunk.
Also, for anyone with this model, where is the sewer hose holder? It is noted in the brochure, but I don't know where it is
Thanks for any info and happy camping this summer!
