Water leaks along floor and wall

I'm finding water leaks along wall and floor. I did have a window that was leaking, but I fix that and found rug was wet. I have pull apart wall and remove the rug, but during the rainy days this week i have water still getting in.

What i think is the problem is where they install the seam on the out side of the unit and silcone is coming lose let water run back in and it coming in where the floor and wall meet.

So fellow RVer, any ideals on getting it fix and dry out?

That silicone won't last forever, so as part of regular maintenance, you should check all of the joints, windows etc that are caulked with silicone. Remove any that is not sound with a razor blade and recaulk with 100% silicone. I did this when I bought mine and it has held up for over 3 years but I still check it regularly.

You may want to be a bit more descriptive about your leak. It's a big coach. Take pictures please. Water will follow the least path of resistance. Your leak could be coming from a place not even close to wear it's coming in at.
