Water in frame structure

Here is a new one I have not seen. Had water seeping in around my entry door. It would get the carper wet and sometimes entry floor. Long story short I was looking for cause and checked my awning mounting brackets for leaks. Top bracket no problem. When I took off the bottom bracket it was like I pulled the plug on a boat that was filled with water. Water poured out for about 30 seconds out of both screw holes. After further inspection it looks like the is some rust through on the frame structure therefore the seeping water. Two questions any idea how water is getting Ng in the frame structure? If I can't find the entry point how do I best prevent water from building up again?

Thanks for any input.

Water will migrate down (just gravity at work), so look up, around the seam between the front cap and the roof, those seams seem to leak over time, around the A/C, or antenna, anything on the front passenger side of the roof.

Look at Seal Tech. It is a system the puts pressure in the coach and then looks for bubbles on the outside of the coach. That is where the leak will be. There are a number of places that use the Seal Tech system, find one near you.
