I have the A122S also, but no leaks. Have driven in hard rain for about 200 miles first day I had it. And has been washed twice with it raised up, no leaks. You are right, dealer time. Hope it gets better for you.

water leaks on a122s unit 4 months old

Check this out:
Leaky bubble window

So far I have no leaky problem with my 2012 A128S. Check all the seals around the roof for possible weakness.

I hope you find the source and please let us know where it was.

I guess you have no choice but to have the dealer fix it...

Good Luck!

ok ... so it sounds like its not leaking from the windows .. thats a good thing..
to me it sounds like a seal maybe compromised around the lip of your storage bin, allowing water to enter there ..and then migrate to the interior of the camper. check the seal, do a bit of a water test if you can .. and try to isolate the leak.
its much better to find it before you go in for warranty work ... to the techs and you know what should be done.
i have had a leak similar to yours in a previous trailer with the same type of storage bin, i readjusted the weather stripping around the opening and all was good ...
if you have any small spider cracks in the front .. then this will be a problem .. and should be taken in to the dealerl for the warranty work ...

hope this helps ... d-mo

I think you also need to be careful how you wash the camper. The A frame is designed to not leak when water falls from the sky. If you are using a hose and in effect forcing water up the wrong way, of course it will leak. It is not a submersible and the dealer will not warrant that.
