Water in Storage Compartments

Found quite a bit of water in the front curbside storage compartment of my 360 RB after a recent heavy rain. Anyone else have this occur?

I have water issues in my basement as well in my 340BH. I would say 3 or 4 of them are wet after driving in the rain. I am thinking of just spraying the outside of the boxes with a flex seal type spray.

Call Forest River, this is a known issue. The way the boxes are put together on the rails underneath isn't quite correct on some units. Mine had some exposed carpet sticking out from the metal frame and would wick up water and moisture when driving in rain. Ours was only one compartment fortunately.there is also some sort of issue with basement doors locks that leak some water as well.

These would be the two issues I would take a look at. Minor but annoying!

We had all the center compartments leaking. The dealer adjusted the doors and said it is often just the way the seals seat on the doors and not unusual to need some adjustment. Heading out for a 10 day trip next week, and we'll see if that worked.

Rain gutters draining straight down? Extend the gutter or mount a down spout. (Don't laugh. I've seen it done with PVC to redirect rain away from storage bin.

water in sunseaker compartment

Heavy rain led to basement swimming pool - returned it to dealer who installed new seal - no more water.

Had a similar problem with our TT and found that rain gutters needed to be extended. An older but wiser gentleman told me to just place spring type clothes pins on each gutter to get the rain water away from the body of the unit. It was a cheap fix that worked. I use them even when in storage.

Has another rain shower today. Checked compartment and found water again. Also found water in compartment where water pump is. So it looks like problem is not related to driving or water coming down from gutter. Also took inside cover off of door locks and found no water. So problem must be door and or seal. Can't see any difference in these door and seals compared to the ones that don't leak. Tried adjusting latch catch to make door seal a bit tighter. Any other ideas?

We've had our Cardinal since the end of April. He replaced all the rubber around the opening in the storage compartments with better rubber trim. We had water also getting in. With the new rubber (better trim) it's now dry

IF you are 100% sure that the rain gutters are not the problem...could it be running in from the roof through the wall? I sure hope not. Scratch that. Your unit is too new.
