One week old!

Well we have had the 23J home for about a week now and have tried out most everything except for filling and. Emptying tanks and such. Only a few issues. One tire is losing air ( have. To check if that's covered by warrenty). One small spot of water on floor by rear bed (everything else dry so not a clue of source, but it did rain although bed end was not put out)' and one electric outlet seems to be blowing a fuse. Have not slept in it yet, waiting for better weather

To find the leak in the tire, pour some soapy water over it and look for bubbles. You may need to move the trailer to find the leak. I would be concerned about the water and the fuse. Is there a vent near the leak? Could someone have spilled something in the camper? If you don't find a reason for the leak, I would contact the dealer ASAP. Is the outlet 12 volt or 120 volt? Is the outlet on the ground fault circuit? My 120AC power has circuit breakers, not fuses.

120ground fault circuit. We made coffe with a plug in perk and it worked fine, the went to make another pot that evening and it ripped the circuit. We will keep an eye on the water on the floor issue ( next time it rains) . Thanks for your suggestions always good to get some feedback from others.

I had water on the rear floor of my 2010 17c and took it back for warranty it tookl them 3 hrs to locate the leak and it ended up being the lh tail light was leaking,could only find the leak when the nose was down lower and the water would run forward.

Thanks for that, will keep an eye on that possibility. We did change the level and since then there has been no pools of water!

Most hybrids have a track along the bunk end doors that is meant to drain water around the door and out the bottom if any rain gets past the seal. We learned that if the trailer was at a wrong angle then a bit of water can come in. It's a good idea to open the bunk end up and take a good look at the track.. We did this and we're much more aware of where the tent fabric etc. was sitting. Of course your water could be something else.. But thought I would share this info with you anyway.
