2015 3050 SF water in basement storage compartment

I can not understand how this happen. Strong rain Monday night while stop, slide out and had about 2 inches of water in rear storage under slide out in morning.

Anyone have a fix for this? I tried to force water with hose around door and no leak there.

Are you sure the door was shut correctly during the rain? Sometimes they feel shut but the lock never caught the jam and the rubber gasket doesn't seal properly.

I have a Prime Time Sanibel and when it rained heavy I would get water in the storage compartment but never 2 inches. I checked this out several times and could not find the source of the leak. I finally found that the water was getting into the storage compartment under the lock striker panel. I pulled the striker panel out and put silicon in the void under the striker and each of the screws. No more water in the storage compartment. This may also be your problem, you will see once the water get under the striker it has a clear shot into the storage compartment. Good luck and I hope this may also by your problem.

I had water dripping out of the wall above the basement. But it wasn't rain. It was the black tank flush system that was leaking. Only leaked when I was flushing the black tank.
Turns out the check valve was installed incorrectly. Water came gushing out.
Dealer was able to fix it.

I had the same problem on my 3170ds. I thought I found the leak, a gap in the seal. Then my son went to get something out and saw the water filter was leaking. A little silicone tape and fixed. I just wanted to let you know in case you had a similar set up.
