Pace Arrow leaking bays

Does anyone have a 2020 Pace Arrow 36U that is experiencing water in storage bays when traveling in the rain. Any suggestions on a fix will be appreciated.

Water in storage bays.

I have a 2017, 36U , that gets considerable water in the curbside bays, fore and aft of the rear wheel well. Iíve tried using a silicone sealer but, did not solve the problem.

Yes, 2016 35K. The rubber they use is not thick enough. I am NOT surprised they have not fixed this common issue.
They replaced mine with a thicker rubber gasket that seals against the door better as it closes.
Would be nice if you could adjust the rubber stoppers on the frame or the lock/latch to bring it in closer but that is not the case.

You would think that after numerous complaints over the years they would come up with a fix for this problem. Apparently the people who design these Rvís and build them never camp or travel in them which should be a requirement. Prior to this 2020 Pace Arrow we had a 2005 Winnebago that never leaked in all the years we owned it. Just goes to show you how the quality of workmanship and materials have deteriorated over the years. Now itís just push them out as fast as they can to make as much money as they can.

You would think that the bulb seals would be thicker or they would have adjustable door latches.
