possible bingo on water leak. found two bolts loose on left side of storage bin on front of unit/ 7/16 size. bolts are near hinge that goes all the way across the rear of lid/ tighten bolts and checked other two/gasket was not sealing and was pulling up as you closed storage lid/gasket is a little wrinkled at that location/ will let tech know what happened/ hope this cures leak/I will test it for leaks before I take it to dealer/ other problems are minor/left screw pulled out of mirror/ spare tire bracket loose/ fire ex bracket broke/ lift system appears to take much more lifting to raise roof/ I am 6 3 and the rear handle seems to have increased effort to start lift process/ has any members have any of these problems?? ps just trying to give feed back for group/

As to roof raising, I'm 6'5" and the location of the handle to initially raise the roof is not in the absolute best position, sort of requires a "heave ho" as you start the lift to get beyond the balance point. If it were me I'd mount the handle higher to get better leverage but I know they mounted it lot to make it work for the majority of users. When lifting from a closed position, the location of the handle puts a good deal of the static weight of the roof on your lifting arms as well.... The bungee helpers more come into play about halfway raised, they are not capable of really contributing to the earliest part of the lift sequence IMHO.

The other issues you mention sound somewhat typical, minor nuts and bolts stuff... I had my own set but they were of about the same magnitude.

Glad you found the likely source of leak, I don't have the storage compartment so can't be of any help there.
