Potential roof leak?

Hello,
So I was on the roof of my 2016 Jay Flight slx 264BHW clearing snow and was checking seals and noticed a separation in the sealant around the TV antenna. Also notice "rippling" (for lack of a better term) along the edge of the roof. This is my first trailer and I am unsure as to what the proper product would be to fix the sealant and if I should be concerned about the edge of the roof. Thanks in advance for any insight and/or advice on this advice.

Dicor self leveling caulk will reseal those cracks. The first one indicates it needs the dealer to take a look if it is warranty.

All need immediate attention either way.

I would get that caulked asap. The rippling you referred to, I would not be worried about.

For me, I would call the dealership and see if you could email your pictures to them and ask them the same question you posed here. That way you have in writing that it's an easy fix and to bring the camper in. If you can't get the camper in soon, I would get some self leveling caulk to seal it up for now, then take it to the dealer when you are able.

Good luck.

Dicor tends to shrink and crack over time. I would suggest using Proguard.

I would PM BigJohnD for further direction.

Here is a thread discussing his use and the product. It stays more flexible, does not seem to discolor, and does not shrink and crack like Dicor. Also easier to take off and reseal, unlike Eternabond tape.

Once applied you don't need to touch Eternabond for 15 yrs or longer

They give a 15 yr warranty if properly applied.

Send pictures and describe the problem to JAYCO just so it is on record that you have this issue and if anything goes wrong because of these cracks, your problem is on record. If you have more than one spot, send those also.

Neither am I. Funny thing is that we absolutely love everything else about this trailer so far. Had it since August but didn't expect something like this already.

Sloppy caulking job around that antenna. The caulking is original around my antenna base and still looks good on my 6 year trailer so by comparison they did not get it right on this new one. I would get some dicor on those cracks post haste to keep water out, would not wait for a dealer to do it.
