We do use our camper when it is cold and the window sweat really bad.
"Checking" the roof is not enough. You need to have the unit leak tested. Sealtech system. The unit is pressurized and then sprayed with a soap solution. It will detect the smallest of leaks.

With cold weather use especially with an aluminum skin you will get condensation in the walls since there is no vapor barrier between the paneling and insulation.

Did Keystone make a change? My 2005 Montana only had one year.

The corrosion looks to me, to be either galvanic corrosion, or maybe salt water exposure. The galvanic type could be dissimilar metals, or stray electrical currents.

I wonder how many of us actually have this done? I know I haven't, I don't even know if my local RV service offers this. How often is it recommended?

Sorry if I got off topic.....

I believe the Jayco owners manual recommends an inspection twice a year (minimum), don't recall the exact wording.

What I've done in years past to repair...not real repair but to stop more damage from leaks...take hair dryer to make all dried up and warm. Use marine white sealant on holes. Beside that you can only replace siding and that is a expensive job.

I was going to ask the OP if they get a "poke" from the exterior of the rv on ocassion? We have a few holes as pictured and have had issues with "hot skin" in the past...
