    Hi,happy new year ,I have leaks to the roof where the joint is over qourter window and to passenger side joint at A frame this leak is rather severe,i`m wondering if the roof is closing tight enough,i think my consumer battery is under charged would this be a contributing factor,any ideas welcome.

    Does it look like there's a gap at the top of the windows ? The fit should be quite snug. Krytox/gummi pfledge needs to be regularly applied to the rubber seals to ensure they work properly.
