Found Leak

I found a leak in the front bunk of our 23b this afternoon after a heavy rain and I'm not sure how to fix it. The bunk was open and water came in around the bottom corners. It looks like rain was coming down the side of the canvas and getting around the plastic strip the canvas is attached to then running down inside the camper. There is a metal strip on the inside that holds the plastic strip in place. This metal strip is working as a gutter.
Any thoughts on how to fix it?

Any chance you can get a picture or is it still raining too hard. Might get some better answers if we can see what your explaining.

We currently have this issue with our 16XRB, that we first thought to be condensation. We found a couple of spots on the plastic trim, that are cracked where the screw attaches to the bunk opening. Ours will be repaired under warranty in July. Jayco is having our dealer replace the complete canvas, and bunk door (signs of some delamination around the edges). I'm hoping this solves our leak issues, since I talked my wife into buying this model, instead of the 174BH non hybrid she wanted.

It sounds like I may have to replace our canvas?

It depends on the actual cause of the leak. It could be something as simple as tightening a few screws, or, a bit of caulk. If your unit is still under warranty, I'd take it to the dealer, and let the warranty cover it. If not under warranty, I'd be inclined to come up with a fix on my own, with canvas replacement being the last resort.

On our current leak, I would have pumped the cracked area of the trim with some caulk, and camped on. But, since it's under warranty, I'm leaving it up to my dealer, and Jayco, to repair.
