See through spots on X17Z tents?

My family took our Maiden Voyage in our 2014 X17Z. When I woke up the first morning, I noticed small pin head sizes spots that allow light through. It rained that night and it did not leak, but I am a little worried about these spots. There are a few spots on the two tents. Does anyone else have spots like this? Is it something that needs to be repaired? Thanks for any input!

Yes, I had the same thing on my 2010. Not an issue at all. If it bothers you, you could but a tiny blob of something (epoxy?) opaque on the outside to stop the light coming in.

Yep, they are all like that. Our popup had them, as did our X17Z and now our Starcraft, nothing to worry about. You can use a dap of "VLP" to cover them up a little but it's not necessary.

I have an X23B and I have a spot just like your pic. I bought some of that VLP and used it just in case. The VLP is clear, so you'll still have the light coming through.

Thank you everyone for your responses. It makes me feel better knowing that it is not a big deal. I was concerned that I'd have to take it back to the dealer. Thanks again!
