Mr Haver, I am leaning toward your thoughts as well. I did see the silicone blob in the corner but not the length of the interface back to the camper hinge.
The storm was an extreme test for sure, but great to find out on the first camp out.
Plato, thanks again

I had the dealer install guttering over both bunk ends on my 23ikss. However , I don't think that would help you in this instance. Looks to me that water entered along the white channel. Chances are the camper was not perfectly level (almost impossible to do) and that area was the low spot. I would suggest sealing along the channel and hosing it down when you get home. While you're at it , take the time to inspect and condition the rubber seals around the bunks. Probably wouldn't have helped this time but will save you trouble down the road. Good luck.

Yes I would agree, just throwing it out there as a add on.

What gutter did they install? Standard RV gutter rail with the vinyl snap insert?

Thanks

I don't have the camper at home now but as I recall, it is a u channel running the width of the bunks with mini downspouts on each end. I posted pictures on here some time ago and I have searched in vain to find the post. If I find it I will repost. Just found pictures.
