    I have a 2017 Jayco 16XRB hybrid and was getting ready for an upcoming trip and while moving it I noticed water leaking from around the outside of the front bunk area at the bottom. I popped out the bunk and it was dry except the channel underneath the bunk had water in it. What would cause this? The rear bunk end had no evidence of water intrusion and the bottom channel was clean and dry.

    Can you post a pic of what this channel looks like? My first guess is a failing seal around the bunk end, but admittedly am not familiar with the newer Jayco products

    Don't believe that Jayco hybrids have the Roto-Vise system.

    It's likely to be the "tired" seal. There is an easy fix. Look for high-density rubber foam weatherstrip by Frost King in HomeDepot. Add this on the metal rim all around where the original seal is in contact with the camper.
