Hi all, just returned from a nice Labor day camping trip, but got a little wet. Has anyone had a leak from the roof vent brace? The brace that raises and lowers the lid connects thru the hatch front and back (really surprised the factory would have this brace go thru to the outside like that) anyway before I try to tackle sealing, I thought I would tap into the brain-trust here and see how it should be done? I do notice a couple of screws but not really sure what type of gasket or seal is involved. I hope this makes sense not sure if I am describing it right. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

yes, I have. there were cracks at the mounting points of the lid to the brace. Its easier and more reliable to simply replace the lid... easily had from camping world or any RV supply place.
