Sunlight over door. Does this mean it will leak

Over the door on my a frame pop up when it is real sunny outside u can see sunlight comming through. my first thoughts was "oh crap its gonna leak." We just purchased the camper 2 weeks ago and was wondering if this is a big issue and should we take it back to the dealer. I tried to simmulate rain to see if it would leak but we have rain showers tonight and was gonna leave it open to see if it will.

The spot is at the top inside where the a frame meets the wall

We have the same thing, but have had no issues with rain. We were concerned about mosquitoes finding their way in so we stuff a 3"x3"x3" piece of foam into the top corner on both sides after we set up the camper. So far so good!!

...and...we're camping!!

After three years, and after storms that would make your hair stand up, that spot has never leaked on our A128. I think you're golden. We did have the mosquito concern that FarFromStock talked about, so we stuffed paper towels into that area whenever we were in a heavily mosquitoed area.

Ours is similar. We weathered a heck of a storm with torrential wind driven rain this past fall and not even a single drip. As Ham says, you're golden.

Same here. No leaks so far. After I had all the gaskets replaced last year, I can barely see any daylight in either roof corner.
