Yes, I took a look at them, I would say that's where it's leaking. Looks like the screws have been drove in to deep and have cut through the comer molding. If it was me, I would put some Caulking over the screw head and make sure it was sealed good, then run water over it again to see if it's still leaking, then go from there.

Hope this help's

If the camper is a 2013 model, it should still be under warranty. Jayco has two year warranty. Take it back to the dealer.

I already have an appt to have it looked at but not until Sept. We have another problem that we were getting fixed so this will just add to it? It has been one thing right after another with this camper. I guess I call them and tell them about this. The whole front of the camper has to come off anyway so I don't guess this will be an issue??

Why does the whole front of the camper have to come off?

When the camper was built they ran a nail from the inside to the outside near the corner metal near where it's leaking. They undoubtably covered it with caulk and it came off. We had no idea until we found the first water. My guess is it has been leaking since day one on the corner. When the caulk came off the nail it got much worse. I sent pictures to Jayco and it will be covered under warranty. I guess I will pull all the plastic strips off the screws to make sure this is the only corner with a problem. The dealership I'm going to said they would probably have to rebuild the front?? I won't go back to the dealership I purchased it at. Having to drive two or three hours to another state. Whoever the workers were that built my unit should be fired. First time I rolled the slide out a side window shattered and of course it wasn't covered under warranty. A year later I still have metal shavings and wood shavings blowing out when the heat or air come on. We camp at least once a month so you'd think that should be done by now. Oh well, thanks for all your help with this.

You should be under warranty and the place to start is your dealer and if no satisfaction go directly to Jayco Customer Service with pictures. When dealing with your Dealer and Jayco, remember that "honey" will get you more than "vinegar" so tread lightly. I was 1 year plus 6 months past my warranty and Jayco rebuilt my entire front end and replaced one strip of metal on the left side
as a "Goodwill Measure" due to concealed water damage. P/M me if you are interested in hearing the whole story.

The dealership I am going to has been super nice. I emailed pictures and they got the work approved through Jayco without me making the long drive. I won't ever step foot on the selling dealers lot again. I will drive two hours to never deal with those people again. Where was your concealed water damage? That is interesting!

What type caulk do you use on the side corners to stay within warranty? The manual says to use what is already on it but that is some sort of tape that has smushed out everywhere? I still have a good bit of warranty left so I don't want to mess that up.

Wal Mart sells a big roll of putty tape that I use. It is in the section where they sell Mobile Home repair items near the paint section. Also, you need to check the roof seam where the top piece of metal joins the roof and if not mentioned before check the running light mounts. Remove the lens cover and look for any signs of rust.

Lights are caulked well and roof is great? One of those freak things I guess. It goes in early next month for repairs.
