27BH GreyWolf Slide Question

When my slide is completely out, I can see light by the seal on the top left of the slide. This is when I am inside the camper. Though it has not leaked yet, I did not know if the seals should be more sealed or if this is normal.

I was in a pretty bad storm two different occasions and it did not leak in so I do not think that leaking is an issue.

Is this possibly an adjustment issue?

I don't recall seeing any light on ours..can't say I've looked.
The only water we've had inside was when we closed up in a rainstorm - water on top of the slide got on the floor inside - not much, but some - which i'd expect to happen as the top of the slide is out in the rain and ends up inside the camper when closed.

Just an idea, measure how far your slide is out on either side. Compare your measurements. Then you'll know if its the slide out or a gasket issue. As far as if it is the slide out needing adjustment someone smarter than me will have to chime in. I've seen up and down adjustment but not uneven sliding adjusting.
When you take the measurements I would try to measure from the frame rails.
