Angry Ramp door has water in it

I just purchased a 2021 Forest River Vengeance Rouge Toyhauler it rained the other day and when I opened the ramp door to load something in it I noticed water coming out of one of the corners of the door when it was down on the outside of the door there is no sealant around the aluminum frame to the main panel should it be sealed

Yes. Factory rep told me to do so to ensure waterproofing.

Moved thread to the General Toyhauler Topics section since the OP's topic is strictly a Toyhauler issue.

I’d have to see exactly where but if possible I’d use eternabond in order to do it only once.

And once again we're forced to buy an overpriced junk box and then make it right at our own expense of time and money.

But hey that's about 50% of the "sport" of RVing right, fixing stuff.
