Capt.Bill I added my Email address to my profile so you can send the doc. I really appreciate it. My seam lasted only about 5 months but that side was sitting facing the sun in Quartzsite this winter.

OK folks, I've scanned and sent the document to those who have requested it. If any of you can post a picture, with a link to it here, I would appreciate it.

I have noticed many of you are very loyal to Winnebago and I guess thats good, but more of us than you know got stuck with bad engineering and quality. I own a 1999 Ultimate Advantage that is the high end of the product line. My most recent problem was the same roof problem many other owners have stated. I admit that mine happened after driving through strong winds in Southern California. When I pulled off in a Flying-J I walked around to all the other rigs and funny thing I only noticed other Winnebagos with the roofs lifted off. Luckily I could push mine back in the J channel and rear cap with minimum damage.
What bothers me the most about this and other problems I have had is that I have written to the director of Quality at Winnebago about my problems and the letter I received said that I should talk to my dealer and not the factory.
When I worked on the assembly floor of a Diesel Engine Plant we took our customer complaints seriously and resolved them.

Problem with the J channel is that you have to push against every inch to find the weak spots in the seal. We took all the old out of our 2000 and resealed the entire driver side and got our recent leak resolved but one of the times I was down at the dealers saw a 1999 with the entire front cap blown off.

OH and we have always inspected our seams regularly, funny thing is the passenger side had never needed redone but as little as 1-2 inches of loose seal will cause a leak on the driver side. Maybe has something to do with the slide?????

I have a 1999 Winn Brave, My roof fiberglass was clulked where the roof meets the side rail.Some spots needed replacement So Went to my RV dealer to find out what materal to use to recaulk and was told that it didn't have to be caulked at all. That if water entered the channel it would just drain out the ends.Well he may be right but I figured it wouldn't hurt to clean and recaulked both sides anyway, It helps hold the roofing in the channel..

Capt. Bill, I would be interested in receiving the .jpg of the roof. I recently had a leak, and have had my roof inspected every 6 months as well. Just bought some eternabond and will be installing it shortly. My email address is [email protected].

Thanks.

Betty, I e-mailed it to you.

Admin, I wonder if you could post the document, with full credit to Winnebago of course, so others could click the link if they are interested.

Bob, I'll send you a copy, but I would like to ask you a favor too. Will you take some pictures of the Eternabond job when you finish, and email them to me? I'd like to see how it looks when finished.
If anyone else has used this product, same request goes out to them. Can anyone provide a picture of the finished job? Thanks

Opps..
Sorry about that, hit the wrong key.
Yes Capt. Bill I will be glad to (try to) send a picture. Haven't done that yet. Only problem is, it will be a few weeks before I can do roof or pic. When I ordered the Eternabond they said it was back ordered and would be a couple weeks before they get resupplied. So I don't know when I will get it. Will keep you posted.
Bob
