2012 Bronco 1500 Door Seals

Does anyone have any tips for helping the door on this model seal better. It is a two piece fold down door. I have so many problems with this camper leaking when it rains. I also have had the cargo doors leak and soften the floor from the door past the bathroom. that is going to cost me some $$$.

I had a 2012 1251SB. The door set up was kind of clunky but it never leaked when it rained. With the short bed package the side compartments were closed in and never leaked. I would think the seals could be easily replaced on the cargo doors. Not sure why the door leaks.

I strongly suspect that is why Palomino went to the one piece door in aluminum frame, because of the leak issue, also why I never bought an earlier unit, I read about many, many issues with the 2 piece door, IMO, a terrible design.

I see there are still a few 3 year old 2 piece units 'new' still for sale.

Having said that, the one piece door works well but has a drawback and that is, there is no inner screen door, something I would have preferred.
