Leaky compartment behind genset

Every time we drive in the rain, I get water into the compartment that is behind the genset. Has anyone else had the same thing happen? I tried to seal the plastic tub around its top seam. Now I think it might be coming in behind the big blob of gray spray foam insulation where the genset conduit comes into the compartment.

I have not had the leak but I have replaced some of the foam on the coach. I would pull the old foam out and reseal. I used great stuff pest proof formula from Home Dep. It will match color and wont get chewed.

I had dampness in the compartment two back from gen once and then never again
I'm chocking it up to damp patio rug and good seal never dried out
My issue was with rt side first compartment behind Gas Bottle
This is my tool shed and it was getting wet in there and started to rust my stuff :-(
I emptied it and search around and found a hole cut in the upper left top of the plastic casing (access???)
I covered it with duct tape and she's dry as a bone now

I refoamed when I reworked the plumbing in the right rear bay by adding hot and cold drain valves and discharge lines (search "Two monkeys... Vs Harry"), now the water tanks drain out the rear of the coach and not where I am standing. I also filled some day light I found at the back of cabinet under the sink when I renforced the pots and pan shelf under the sink.

I think I found the leak. There is a wire loom snake running out of back end of the compartment just in front of the rear tires. The gray foam guy made a big blob, but only covered half the hole.
