2008 Knight with leak

Any of you ever have a leak that drips down into the outside storage compartment under the drivers seat? Water comes in after heavy rains. Carpet under window by driver seat gets wet and water drips into cabinet below. This cabinet has electrical fuses in it.

I found a portion of the roof front cap that connects to the roof with an opening. Fixed it a few years ago and all was good. Now a leak again. I found what looks like a slight crack on the room edge of e roof near the front cap. I sealed it yesterday. Heavy rain last night and more leaking. The rail that runs along the edge of the roof that holds the awning is there. Is it possible that water could be coming in under it near. Screw that olds it up? I am going to put some seal around it too.

Anyone have this issue?

My 08 knight leaks thru the drivers window in a hard rain. I see water on the crossbar below the upper pane, and drips on the switch panel sometimes. I did some work on it (dont recall what where exactly) and have slowed it to a trickle, but it's still there....
Will be watching this thread, water inside the bus sucks.

The amber lights on the front cap have been a source of leaks on numerous coaches. You might check to be sure they are sealed. Once water gets in there, no telling where it will drip at.

I had the exact same problem. Look for a small opening/gap between the upper corner on the drivers side windshield seal and the drip rail just above the windshield. On my coach, there was a small gap there where the fit between the windshield seal and coach body was not a good fit. Sealed and the leak is gone.

Our Ambassador had a similar leak. The seal that covers the seam between the front cap and side wall was the problem. If I remember right it was somewhere below the drivers window. I peeled back the rubber trim that fits in the metal track, replaced some screws and caulked. I knew there was a problem when some of the screws were very rusty.
