I saw the same rubber flap on FROG Bob's coach when we were at the Goshen Rally and didn't know for sure why it was there. I assumed (yeah, I know) that it was because of a leak issue but wasn't sure. I haven't checked my outside entertainment compartment for water intrusion but will do so now. If I had known of this issue when at the Rally I would have had them put that rubber strip on then.

Gasman we had a real downpour last night and into this am. Just checked in that compartment after seeing your pictures and it's dry. Maybe the wind just didn't blow the right direction don't know.

I had thought of adding a rubber strip on the top edge of door so when it shut it would compress between top of door and top of compartment jamb and not really be seen. Maybe it wouldn't work but may try it when I find the material. If not I'll be calling FR for a piece of that strip.

Did you notice if it was held in place by adhesive or screws ?

Hey Joe. I've been through some unbelievable weather both driving and camping and never had a problem. I was surprised when I saw it on the coach, because I didn't ask for it, but always appreciate preventative maintenance! It looks like it is held in place with an adhesive strip.
