water inside of bay doors

When i raise two of my bay doors below the slide out water drips from the top edge. The water is inside of the doors. I have a 2000 Intrigue 40ft. There is no water inside of compartments. I,m thinking its getting in thru the door hinges which are riveted to a piano type hinge. whats to do? thanks

You could clean and use clear silicone over hinge. You could also drill a small weep hole in bottom of door to allow any water that gets in a way to drain out.

I had the same issue with three of my basement doors when I bought my coach a year ago. Most of the problem was roof air conditioners leaking and their drains not working right. As a temp fix before I got the air conds draining right on one of the doors I drilled some small drain holes.

Bay door gets water inside

I can,t understand how roof ac can leak into bay doors. Do you mean over the side of coach like rain water or water leaking to inside of walls of coach from ac? That would mean the seal under the ac is bad. Thanks Bob 2000 Intrigue

The tubes draining the two front airs were obstructed. The water worked it's way into the doors, three of them. I got the tubes cleared and now the problem has gone away.
