Wheel Well Leakage

After returning from our last trip and driving in the rain for two days, we noticed the carpet in the bedroom was wet over the wheel wells. Also many of the compartments were wet from the constant spray. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you remedy it. My plan is to use some good caulk then coat the wheel wells and bottom with some truck bed coating like linex or similar product. I did a quick search of the threads and didn't see this one.

I have this problem as well. My passenger side rear wheels throw spray against the track for my passenger side bedroom slide. I met a guy somewhere who worked in the Coburg, Or plant where my unit was assembled and he said there is supposed to be inner wheel wells installed, but all four of my wheel wells have none. (UAW workmanship at it finest -- I wonder why they went out of business?) My intention -- haven't done it yet -- is to install a piece of plastic cut from the bottom of a mortar pan on to the slide mechanism bolts to divert the spray away from the slide mechanism. Hope it works.

I've had the wet compartment problem too. I solved it by staying parked on rainy days.
