Hi guys we where away this week and just got back from Manobier campsite just out side Tenby . We had a hell of lot of rain and we had some leaks from the folding edge on the walls anyone replaced the foam seals that go between alloy and the wall pvc ? . If so what did you use ?

As you know we have the same Dandy, and I have not heard of leaks from this edge before.
Its just a regular sticky back foam seal, so should be easy enough to replace.
As ever let us know how you get along :huh:

I see ours leaked on the one where the arrow is we had to put towels on the floor to mop it up was that bad . Its the only place I can see where it could come in . Think its running behind that foam ? Will take that strip off next weekend and investigate Or another thing it could be maybe the Dandy was not level side to side ? And the wall was sealing 100% against the seal ?

Best to try.
As I say we have never had a problem with that seal
Do you bungee/tie down your roof, as water can get in there if its raining and windy, and the roof is not secured?
