2021 Tiffin 34PA water leak

Recently while camping during Christmas we had a heavy rain for a couple days, after the first day I noticed a puddle of water directly under the toilet paper roll holder in the bathroom.
The next day after a heavy rain the puddle of water moved across the tile to just beneath the sink.
Both times after soaking up the water I noticed that when stepping on the tile floor water would squeeze up in between the tiles.
I went out side to look at the slide out at the location the water was puddling inside and it was dry around the seal.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so where was the water coming from?
I still have about 4 months left on my 1 year warranty so I need this repaired ASAP.

dryer vent

Do you have washer dryer ? If so check the silicone sealing around the dryer vent to side wall?

Was the water running out from under the bathroom sink cabinet? The rear furnace is housed under the sink. The Surburban furnace access panels on the outside of the rig have been known to be rain leak points.

Second thought. Have you checked the slide seals to be sure they have all flipped and sealed properly? Mine are inconsistent. A partially flipped seal could admit wind driven water.

I will look into the furnace access panel, I do have an issue with the seals not completely flipping and after the first rain I made sure they were flipped all the way up but water still came in after the 2nd rain
I think that the bottom corners of the opening where the seals come together could be the access point and then water runs down the inside of the trim till it finds a low spot.

Do you think the wood in the bathroom floor needs to be replaced?

If you can, and your close enough, GO to Red Bay. That sounds like huge leak from the roof. Jeff

To your question on replacing the wood, probably not. If it has been wet since the MH was built, then it will be shot. But if it has only been wet for limited periods, then it should be OK. It will need to be completely dried.

I'd use a heat gun on the top & bottom, to get the drying started. Then let it air dry for a few weeks.
