Guess I agree and disagree. If it's indoors like mine is, ok. If it's going to be inside at dealer, ok. If it's outside now, and will sit outside at a dealer for a bit before it gets looked at, better do something. You do nothing, it's your fault as well.


Documentation can consist of a written log, video timed and dated etc. I just did that with our old Norcold last year. A video and write up, sent to Norcold and Dealer, new fridge in less than a week. Never took it in for anything but getting the new fridge, which later crapped out but that's another story.


I hardly ever deal with dealers, BUT, a good dealer that you trust is key for sure.

I agree on stopping further damage.

Just don't go up there and start Eternabonding until the dealer looks at it if you want a hassle free claim.

If you decide to do this before warranty inspection, make sure to follow the directions on what to use for cleaning the surface before applying Eternabond. I don't think Dawn is the recommended product .

The leak can becoming from anywhere including the other end of the tt. The ceiling lights wiring all run across the roof structure, and the down to the light switch. If you do not see anything obvious when cleaning the roof. I would start at the rooftop AC. Check the bolts, they only need to be finger tight. Do not over compress the seal.

Parents had a water leak they struggled for a few years to find. It was coming in at the TV antenna transfered to a light wire and entered a ceiling light about 10 feet away. So so not rule anything out.

Thanks again for all the insights. I probably should have mentioned that about 10 months ago, I scrapped a section of the trailer's top on the bottom of a basketball goal. The damage included creasing the vent cover. I applied eternabond then to the affected area of the rubber roof and used a hose to test the vent cover and surrounding area. All seemed well until the water appeared in the light fixture. I'll admit that I shouldn't have assumed that the hose test would prove much and I probably should have had a pro check for leaks then. Going to the dealer after water appeared in the light fixture was going to be inconvenient and likely not until after the next rain. The chance seemed high that the leak would be located in the area I had damaged and therefore not covered by warranty. Maybe even after my latest DIY repair I should pay the dealer to check for leaks. Thanks again for all the advice, I've learned a lot from this forum.

Yes that may change everything but it still needs to be located.
