Mine does this as well, thought not to the extent yours does. I also noticed that the colder it is, the worse it is, but only for a short time. IF the inside and outside is the same temp, the roof lays out flat. its only when the inside is significantly warmer than the outside that I get the gap.

I was able to almost completely eliminate my issues by tightening the clamps, but it comes back if its all warm and I wash it, cooling the outside of the panel.

Would love to see what FR says, but I feel this is a fairly temporary problem caused by expansion/contraction due to temp differences on each side of the panel.

I'm going to a camp ground this weekend and I'll be passing right by my dealer. I'll stop in there Friday and see what they say. I think FR needs to put an aluminum angle plate or something on the seal area to keep that spot straight. I'll install my own after the warranty is out.

I bet your rear panel is warped, and is bowed. If you take a straight edge across the panel you will see it. I was told Forest River has a thicker gasket to fix this issue. The panel should not warp or bow because of temperature change, but it appears that some do. A redesign of that panel should be made by the factory so the panel is reinforced, but I would not hold your breath for that to happen. Please let us know what the dealer says about the defect in your roof panel.

Only trying to help timfuji.....most likely darker panels will distort more with heat and cooling than white surfaces...

It will be interesting to see how this is handled by FR, if they just replace the seal it's just a band-aid fix that won't last.

If they replace the whole panel you may get lucky and not have the issue again, on the other hand it may just warp again because there is a design flaw.

I'm not sure how or who to contact at FR , but this needs to be addressed at the factory level. A defect in a complete roof panel is a major issue!

Agreed on that they should fix it.
