Furnace issues when it rains

I have a 2017 Forest River Wildcat and every time it rains water gets into my furnace area and makes the power board go bad. I have replaced it twice now in a months time. Please help

I had a similar issue. A mobile tech added an extra gasket behind the furnace cover and that has kept out the rain ever since.

I had this issue, with the furnace board getting wet. The dealer simply created a divider from the furnace vent. The outside exhaust cover had vent louvers facing up so rain got scooped inside. So the divider keeps rain from getting on the board. They said this was a known issue.
