Sigma EL Habitation Door Leaking (08)
When the door is shut you can see daylight around the top corner and along the top of the habitation door.
When travelling the rain comes in and theres a huge draught if its windy.
I looked to see if there is any adjustment on either the door catch or hinges but there isn't.
The seals appear in good condition and it also looks straight.
If you pull the door from the inside it does close the gap.
Anyone with a similar problem. Is this a dealer thing that needs attention?

This is a common problem and we suffered with a badly aligned habitation door, you could see daylight at the bottom and it was a little drafty but not as bad as yours by the sounds of it, we got ours adjusted at the Auto-Sleeper service centre but it took them half a dozen attempts before they got it properly aligned so that it shut correctly and ensuring that the central locking correctly engaged, as well as aligning correctly to stop the daylight and draft. ( Why the previous owners didn't get this fixed I will never understand shrugg )

So yes it can be adjusted but unless you have a lot of patience and skill I'd leave it to someone else as the impression I got from Auto-Sleepers is they are not the easiest things to adjust.

By the way.... you might like to introduce yourself in the welcome section, it's not compulsory but it does help in getting helpful replies smile!
