Yakima track leaks
After smugly following Jage's mega leak story, I found myself with a similar mysterious leak. Water was dripping around the edge (screws rusted) of the hard liner inside the penthouse ceiling. By the time I found it, there was some mildew. Further inspection showed fungus growing on the outside under the penthouse overhang. Since the bolts for the Yakima tracks come through outside the canvas, I thought those could not possibly be the source for the water inside. Wrong. Taking off the tracks revealed a very poor sealing job by Sportsmobile. Although water was dripping off the ends of the bolts, it was also getting into the internal voids in the roof structure, then coming out inside the penthouse. I don't know exactly the route of travel, but it surely was finding its way. After cleaning and resealing the tacks and bolt holes with real sealant, no more water has shown up inside or outside (dripping off the bolts). I hope this makes sense; but the bottom line is beware of any penetrations either inside or outside, and use the best sealant, rigorously applied, you can find.
