wet front bunk end

Just got from our trip to Mammoth caves and we had to drive through a 10 minute shower, when we got home and opened up the camper to air it out I noticed the front bed mattress at the bottom was wet. We have a 2006 23b, do I need to replace the gasket material around the perimeter? Or is there a fix from Jayco I'm not aware of.
Thanks in advance!

Are you sure that the canvas was neatly tucked in and not touching the seal? I had the exact same problem and found a small piece of canvas that I didn't get tucked in all the way.

X2. Double check the seal. You can use a garden hose spray the front to check the gasket.

Above the seal you will see the rain gutter and the gutter is attached with screws but some of them might not be flush to the gutter. I removed all ths screws and added a sst washer/rubber seal because this is a good place for water to enter the bunk ends. It's almost 11:00 PM and I'll take a pic in the AM to show you the washer and gutter.

Got the pic. of the washers I used on the rain gutter just above the tent ends. You can see the screw with the washer on and also both sides of the washer. My rain gutter has 7 screws on each end and the cost of the washers were .15 ea. I think it's a #8 washer and Jayco DID NOT INSTALL THE SCREWS STRAIGHT !!! When you take a close look
it's obvious that water can enter at this point.

Thanks, I looked at the screws and everything looked good. Today we had a good rain and I inspected the camper open, no water, peeled back the Velcro that separates the wood interior from the bunk ends and the wood has evidence of water being there before. I can see that in places the rubber seal is breaking down at the bottom so I'm going to try and replace it some how. Just didn't know if this is something Jayco has or just get some weather seal at hardware store.
