Water leaks into basement

Hi, I have a 2015 Forester 2401R MBS. After driving home in the rain I noticed everything in the basement was wet and there's pools of water in the wells on both sides. Anyone else with this issue?

Our new SS had a leak that ran down into the right rear basement. The dealer did a Seal Tech test and determined that the window on the rear wall was leaking due to being incorrectly installed. They removed, resealed and replaced it. No more leaks.

One clue that it was the window was the fact that the bed platform was wet. They also replaced that also.

Kudos to McGeorges RV in Ashland, VA for taking very good care of us.

You should probably get it in to your dealer or other service center. Leaks are difficult to diagnose when you can't actually see what's going on, so pretty hard to do online. Best of luck.

Hi, it's already there. I was just curious to see if anyone else has had this issue. It's concerning that the rear wall in the basement is bowed
