A technican actually came to our house to see if there was a problem and he agreed the light leak was so small that it would not be a proble. Any ideas?
I have the same light leak on the door panel on the bed side of our A122, it has not been an issue for us yet, as the design of the roof cap over those panels prohibits rain entry.
It is possible a slight adjustment of the leveling jacks may minimize that light leak?, I haven't tried that yet but these panels are pretty flexible.
Above the basic camper box the design is not incredibly rigid, I'd describe it more like finessed house of cards sort of engineering, panels set into pockets and each other to make an efficient and reasonably stable shelter that is easy to put up and take down.
