Outdoor kitchen leak

Does anyone have a leaky outdoor kitchen door? We have a 360bhs and the door leaks enough to soak a rolled up bath towel during a heavy rain.

This is a common problem. Search for it on other threads. From what I've read, Primetime says this is normal.

It doesn't seem normal that it is getting things inside wet. I thought what PTM is normal is water getting inside the door itself and draining away. I wouldn't like that my paper towels got wet. Were they on the counter?

Try PM'ing RV Guy, I think it is, to get his attention.

where is it getting water? where was towel that was soaked......i too have read of a few complaints of water getting in, but personally i have had 70mph sideways west texas rain pound mine and there were maybe only a FEW drops of water inside the compartment when i opened the door? ....now as far as the whole water inside the door issue, ive seen that, but given the construction and drain holes its really a non issue......just annoying if it falls on your head lol....

The rolled up towel is between the door and the rock facing. It only leaks one the right side. Dealer I supposed to replace the door and frame, but no word yet. Meanwhile I drive 35 miles one way just to check on a stupid towel

I get so win mine if I leave it open during the rain. Which I do. Water drips down from the hinges and gets the left side by the fridge a little wet and the receiver for the door latch on that side is rusting a little. I choose to leave it open during the rain though.
When It is closed, though, I'm not getting wet I. There at all...I too have a 318 BHS

For Clarification - Prime Time does NOT think it's normal for water to intrude INSIDE your coach via a baggage door leak. If that's the case, Warranty Procedures with your dealer need to be implemented to get it stopped. It is normal for water to get inside the baggage door and drip thru the weep holes located at the bottom of the door frame. This water should run out of your coach, though, not in.
