    I have been looking at the new Chausson range and noticed the front seam has no sealant along it. In fact one particular 630 model had a noticeable 1-2mm gap which I thought would just fill up with dirt and algae over time. I guess they are sealed on the inside (hopefully) but thought I would still like that gap filled but wondered if it would affect the warranty...Has anyone had experience of this unsealed seam?...What’s your thoughts?

    It just might be an expansion joint.

    I have just watched the Chausson video and snapshot some images showing the front pod is in 2 pieces with a black sealant strip on the inside jointed together with what look like screw? (not sure) but not to much insulation in there...

    Yep I think it must of been assembled on a Friday afternoon...
    I think I would be asking the dealer to seal that gap if it were mine just in case.
