There was a large device that traveled along the length of the motorhome but it appeared to be a low pressure rinse. The unit was hand washed using low pressure hoses and brushes and yet water got into most of the bins. Is this common? The bin doors seem to fit snugly and the bin frames are caulked fairly well.
I have a 2016 3011DS which is essentially the same as a 2010. Assuming FR is still constructing these the same way in the 2018 models, you should keep an eye out for water in the long compartment under the Living room slide. To provide access to the emergency retraction, FR cut part of the top off of this compartment. Never really thought much about this until we arrived at a camp ground one day after many hours of driving through multiple downpours. I opened this compartment to find several of my plastic storage bins full of water. As it turns out, this compartment is just in front of the rear wheel and during the course of driving water got thrown off the tires and onto the top of the compartment and inside where the ruler is shown in the attached picture.
I would like to believe this was somehow an oversight during construction and in not normally an issue, but I would check your unit just to make sure it's not a problem for you as well. The fix was simple enough. I put some wood between the slide bottom and compartment top and then used expanding foam to fill in the gap between the wood and opening towards the tire. The foam sealed this up really well and I have not had a problem since.
