I actually got in the basement in order to see the exact source of the leak. Make sure everything is completely dry. Get in the basement with a flashlight and have someone latch the door. (If it is your wife locking you in make sure she is not mad at you for anything before having the door latched) Then have them shower the side of the trailer with the garden hose.

Leaking storage

My storage ain't that tall. Not sure this old fat man can fit in there and still twist enough to see anything. Just a tad claustrophobic, too. Good way to see what is happening. May send a grandson in my place. Thanks for the suggestion.

On our CC-5er there was a small amount of water inside on the side storage door..Finally found the problem....Do you have two 1" square spacers on the bottom with a screw holding it in place? If yes remove and put some putty underneath and put screw back in place.. Cap action of water was going under and down the sheet metal screw....

If the hatch mounting screws are outside of the seal on the bottom the water will run down along the seal and pool on the hatch frame and leak through the screw holes into the compartment. Had that problem before and fixed it by caulking the screws over. Not sure why they put the screws outside the seal but they did and I fixed it with a little bit of silicone.

If you are going to remove & replace the door frame,,, you may want to use putty instead of caulk on the door frame !!! If you use caulk,,, you may not ever be able to remove it again !!!

Leaking storage

Haven't noticed where screws are located in relation to the gasket but it makes sense they would let water in if not protected. Won't be back to the trailer until tomorrow afternoon so will check that out. Also appreciate the reminder about putty instead of caulk. That is why I love this forum. Thanks everyone!!

My front window kept leaking so I went to Home Depot and got a piece of siding J channel cut it to length and stuck it over the window leak leak stopped. I got lucky because J channel perfectly matched the color of the trailer.

Repairing door leak

You may have the problem I had. The door when closed has a frame with the panel inside at the bottom. Rain or A/C condensation would run down to the bottom of door, then seep inside and puddle up. To check this, open the door and secure with the clip. Watch for drips now leaking down to the top of door. If this is your issue, a small bead of clear sealant to the exterior part of the door.

How about putting DW in the compartment,,, close and lock the door,,, then shine around the door with a flash light,,, then if and when you let her out,,, she can show you where she saw light !!!
