Another Flagstaff 27RLWS question

I opened my front exterior compartment and the floor was covered in water. There was no water in side the trailer and could not see a place on top that it would be leaking at. Could this water be coming in around the compartment door. It has been doing a lot of raining. The seal looks as good as the ones on the other compartments.

Trying recreating the scene by having someone crawl inside the compartment with a flashlight while another person uses a water hose to mimic rain on the roof, front cap and bay door to see if you can identify the source of the water intrusion....just a thought.

Thanks Cajun Po-Boy. Put my grandson in there and he found it right off. It was where the wires for the power awning and Led lights go thru the wall. It was not sealed good. I could stick my little finger thru the hole.

We had the leaky door issue with a 2012 Bullet. The tops of the doors were of the piano hinge type. All 4 doors leaked ! Dealer changed them out with one continues hinge and problem solved.

I didn't know the wires came through the wall at the bottom. I thought they came out the top. They were covered with a 2 foot plastic strip that was open at top.
