Top not latching down properly

The top of our A128 doesn't seem to be latching down straight. It's as if the bottom piece is too far askew and lines up on top of the door. This has caused the gasket to peel away from the top of course.

Is there that much flex in the tops? Or is it bent?

I might be chasing the wrong thing...anyone else have this issue? I really noticed it as the latch on the door side is difficult to close.

Thanks!

Not sure I understand your post. I do find the back top ( or the top that drop down first) when lower rubs on the top of the bottom half of the door. I sometime have to pull it out and away from the door to get it to lower the last 1/4 inch, so I can latch it. But can not think of what gasket you could be talking about.

Perhaps I am using the wrong term...the black rubber piece that the actual wall butts up against on the roof.

I've experienced misalignment of the top when the camper is not level or if the stabilizers are down too hard. Either of those can twist the frame just a bit but particularly the stabilizers. "Too hard" can be an arbitrarily small amount of body lift from the stabilizer.

Another place to look is the lift assist springs on the inside. If one part is loose, the top could easily get misaligned. Look in each of the corners for a spring bar coming from the front or back wall that goes into a guide box along the side lip of the top.
