    I am in the midst of varnish work, but as I check sizes I noticed the sides of the camper have bowed out (on both sides) and the hatch does not line up on either side.

    Aesthetically I am concerned, but also this would seem like a water issue as well.

    Anyone else had this problem? Any idea how to tweak, adjust or fix? The sides extend outwards about 1/4 to 1/2″ on both sides.Β  Which is of course weird because the hatch was cut off the sides…

    Thanks.

    I have the same problem, so I added some clasps on each side. Now the galley hatch is closed in three points, one on each side.

    Ah interesting.Β  Did your’s leak before you did this?

    Do you have a link for those clasps?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    I have not tried the leak test before the clasps because it was obvious that it will leak.

    Here is what I used
