Water leaking into basement areas

Hi, has anyone had this issue? The RV was parked on a flat , level surface. The basement doors were securely closed and locked yet I discovered a large pool of water in each one. We had rain but no wind. I wiped them out but two days later ( no new rain ) it reappeared. Help!!!
2015 Forester

Have any water lines passing through those areas? Could have a leak still leaking with no rain as you said. Also might be condensation this time of year.

Our 2013 rig had something on the doors from the manufacturing process that caused the seals to stick to the frames. They tore slightly when I first opened them causing leaks. Replacing the seals fixed ours up.

Clean water or road water?

It's outside/rain water. It's on both sides of basement. There's no plumbing back there.

I don't get it. It seems there's a lot of issues with the Forester. I waited two years to be able to afford to pay cash for mine. I walked thru them over a dozen times and looked online for any outstanding issues but not until I found this forum were my worst fears confirmed.

All motorhomes have little issues thanks to the fact that they are rolling houses built with an eye towards weight reduction and cost. You just can't get away from them regardless of brand. I would run my hand over the door gaskets and look for cracks or tears. I would also look to see where the seam is for hte gasket. I have seen some installed incorrectly with the seam not on the bottom. I would hope that this was not the case but you never know...

Check the door frame

I had a similar problem with a non-FR trailer. The problem was that the door frame did not seal to the outside trailer walls. Dealer caulked around the outer door frame and problem went away.
