Solera leaking water solved

After camping I went to clean out my Solera and noticed a big puddle underneath left rear storage. When I checked the storage area there was about an inch of clear water. Checked pump. Everything pressured and no noticeable leak. Felt around the hose connections to and from fresh water tank and felt some water on the lines. I took off the cover to look at valve and fittings when I discovered the reason for the leak. During the mounting of the fresh water/winterize valve they missed the mounting hole and screwed into the body of the valve. I guess the screw loosed a bit in travel and allowed the leak to start. It could have been worse with the electrical boxes for the slideouts being in the same area.
I have attached a picture and put some goop around the wrong hole with red arrow to see easier. The green arrow is where the mounting screw should have gone.
Just an FYI, just in case you have a mystery leak.

Warranty claim - manufacturer defect/error! I'd make sure they replace the whole valve.
