I have a Aerolite Cub 23T Hybrid TT, 2000 model. I bought it used in the South and brought it to New Jersey last winter. As soon as we got here we got socked with a big storm and put 8-12" of snow on the roof. The roof now has a very slight bow in it from the center (front side of AC unit) forward on the roof. When we started camping I noticed that it collected water the roof. It DOES NOT LEAK yet, but I am afaid it will start to. I leave it stored with an RV cover and at a slight downward angle on the front so water runs off, but when we are camping and level, I dip it after rains to get rid of the water. It even collects water from the AC condensation runoff during humid summer weather. It does not hold more than 2 or 3 gallons, but bothers me none-the-less. I had considered putting a jack on the floor with a pole and a thin piece of thin plywood on top to distribute the load and jacking slowly to see if I can straighten it back out. Does anyhone have any suggestions short of a repair facility and big $$? Is my Jack idea viable? I am assuming that since my TT is an ultra light (3600 lbs dry) that it is probably framed in aluminum rather than wood?
