new trailer roof leak

hi all
just bought our first brand new 22bhm

had many used before but this is our first new

first trip out i get woke up to water dripping on my face

call dealer and unit is in monday am

they have it afew days, add some caulk at the corners, rain test and say we are good

take the unit home and wash the footprints etc off the roof to apply roof treat after all the repair traffic

guess what. roof still leaks. same spot

the wood is stained and insulation is

called dealer. but im really wondering what my options are

id just as soon go back to my old trade and get my money back. will that happen?

Doubt that will happen.

Leaking in front? Have them check the marker lights. Next, while on the roof, on your hands and knees, look over the edges, and see if that area is caulked good. From the ground it is harder to tell.

Remember water flows down hill. You co I ld have a leak se distance away, and it's dripping somewhere else. Parents had this issue with the TV antenna.

Good luck
