    Our 2013 Aliner Scout has developed a leak around the roof vent. We did a short term, campground fix using duct tape, but need to address the problem more permanently. Any advice or experience with this problem? [ALPU]

    I am not f.amiliar with the design, and pics would be good but I would remove the vent, check for hidden damage, replace any gasket and/or use a silicone caulking around the seam. That,s what I did with my fantastiik roof vent and have 5 years on it and still holding.

    Is the lid cracked? If not you can probably re-seal with Dicor self leveling caulk or another brand. (Make sure the area is cleaned good, especially after using duct tape)

    Thanks for the feedback. We caulked the vent this evening. We'll see how it goes.
