Water Bay Problem

Water is getting into my water bay when I drive our coach in the rain.
Check Points:
I have not de-winterized yet so there is no water in the coach to leak.
All entry points are secure, exit for sewer hose, rubber stopper for drain, etc. (I actually resealed the sewer hose passage with silicone)

Drove it 30 minutes today, in the rain, to get a state inspection. When I returned to storage, there was water in the water bay again. Prior to leaving, the bay was totally dry.

Ideas or experiences , other than "don't drive in the rain" great appreciated.
Thank you kindly.

I had water get into a bay on another brand. The one forward of the wheel well . The side wall was not properly sealed on top and the tires kicked up the rain water .

It’s typically wheel wells. I had the same problem in the pegboard bay. Newmar sealed the wheel well better.

New one on me, check the little deck plate in that compartment. The little round thing white in color. Make sure the low point drains are all closed. Dont think this model has the internal gutter drains, so that is not it. You might get some yellow color snap line refill from Home Depot, and spread that all along the gasket. Then close the door to the compartment, then open the door and see if the gasket is making contact all around the door seal, the yellow powder should adhere to all the contacts points. This is similiar to the puple paper the dentist puts on your teeth to make sure there are no high spots when biting down. Sometiing else may work, not sure what else. It also could be the other side of this bay or the compartment forward of that.
