Check the weep hole in the bottom of the door.

I would check to make sure there are weep holes in the bottom of the doors. The doors on mine were installed with the weep holes at the top. I drill new ones in the bottom and the problem went away.

Years back we had a TT that when I power washed the wheels & wheel wells the water would get between the bottom of the Trailer & the bottom material,,, it took me a long time & a lot of work to finally find how the water was getting in to where it would pour out as soon as I took the Trailer out of level,,, when I would lower the front,,, water would start leaking from the front !!! I also found water was getting in around the back bumper,,, where it attached to the frame !!!

Sorry for the late reply but I just saw this and had a similar issue on my new 2016 Columbus. Every time it rained a had a pool of water in one storage area where my auto leveling and water control panels are. The opening is cabinet style doors with center twist locks on the top and bottom. After inspecting it closely I found the top twist lock had a loose screw. I tightened it, problem gone. Hope this is helpful.

We had the same problem in the same compartment after we bought ours.I would dry it out and find water there even without any rain. I opened the interior compartment where the house water filter was, felt around the water pump and it was wet at the bottom. There is a water filter mounted under there and I hand tightened it. That seemed to have stopped it.
