Water leak on a Breeze

Asking this for a friend. Seriously.
She opened the front left outside bay on her 2011 BR28 yesterday, the bay with all the electronics, and found a half-inch of standing water in the bottom.

The motorhome had not been washed recently, and had not been driven through water, but it sat outside during a couple of snows that had melted. Is there perhaps a path for meltwater from a bad roof seem into that compartment? So far, all the electronics seem to work.
Thanks!

Can't respond as to a specific source for the water, but it sounds like there certainly must be a path that is letting the water flow into the compartment.

So, the search is on. Water can track a ways from the point of entry. On a boat, paper towels are often laid out to see the path of a water leak, so you might consider starting with that tactic.

Hopefully, a Breeze owner will respond with experience on resolving just such a leak.

I have no specifics on your breeze but as a long-time boater, the path is often mysterious, hence starting at the final point of leak. I would first check the obvious such as the gasket around the basement locker to make sure it is seating and water is not entering from the sides thru the door. Chalk line powder may help id spots that are not seated if the rubber is in good shape.

Has your friend gone onto the roof to check for obvious voids/damage in the sealant?

Most of the compartments on my RV are sealed except at the edges and where cables and plumbing enter. That would be another place to check for the LAST entry point which may give insight into where above to start looking. However, as it appears to be coming from the roof by your description and IF no leaks are seen inside, I would start looking at the edges where the roof cap meets the sides and any looseness or sealant issues in the gutters to coach, and bum gaskets in slides (were the slides open or closed?) and slide topper attachments.

Lastly, you can always try the hose on the roof (small area by area) to try and isolate the leak point

Wonder if aged Duck bills at the base of a bay, directly behind the front tires, may be an issue ?

Is this the bay under the driver's side window? If it is, check the weep hole drains for that window.
