Compartment door leak

The large basement storage PS compartment gets wet on the bottom near the door every time we run in rain. I see no water anywhere other than the compartment floor near the door so I figure water from the front wheel is getting in where the rubber seal meets the door at the bottom.

The rubber seal looks good, is not flat, and the door closes tightly on the seal....I actually have to give it a nudge with my knee to engage the latches. It is a long door so maybe it fits tight at the ends but not in the middle.

Anyone have a similar problem or have ideas?

How are the seals at the top and sides on the compartment? If rains comes in at the top, it may run on the inside of the door and collect at the bottom.

I have the same issue, and it relates, for me anyway, to the latches at each end, I have to be sure and press each end with my calf and hear the latch connect. If not the grey carpet gets wet. Well thats what I think however I will be interested in the outcome of this thread.

Michael, I thought that was the issue when I first noticed the water but I now always go around the coach before traveling and use my lower leg to engage all the latches.

I guess I will have to get inside the compartment, close the door and let DW spray around the door with a hose to see where the water comes in.

I will report my findings.

Careful she might not let you out!
