StillKickin, do you have the ebay item number on the seal you purchased?

Can you please post a picture of the compartment fix.
Thanks, I don't notice a leak but want to check my seal. (Very little rain here)

15ft Black Edge Trim Door Rubber Seal Strip RV camper Trailer Honda Fit 4 Doors | eBay. I would start here. As you can see the height is 11mm or close to 7/16 inch. Since that was higher than the OEM rubber seal, the door now does require greater close pressure. Ideally , in my application if I could have found maybe 3/8", that might have solved the leak issue, with slightly less close pressure, but it was trial and error for me, and the 11mm one I purchased, did the trick. But it is dry.

Sorry, I just don't have the set up to post a picture, but if you visualize the seal starting at the bottom radius and continuing up the side, top, and other side, ending at the same bottom radius, leaving the straight bottom with no seal, that was the application that worked for my leak.

OK, I see what you used. I can get at HD or Lowes as well. I've driven through 2 very heavy rains and had water in the compartments both times. More so on center and right side rear. I had wondered whether it was from the access doors or from the seal on the rear slide above the compartments. Sounds like it must be the compartment doors, which is a lesser problem. I'll try your solution and hope it's not really coming in via the slide!
Always a good idea to check in the compartments for moisture. Mold and mildew can stink it up fast! I can testify to that.

Leak

I had the same problem with ours and found that the latch was not fully extending. I sprayed them with WD40 and had no more problems. Should hear a click when you close them.
