THOR ACE- water leak test

Finally got around to leak testing the coach and found one small leak at center of window, sofa side of coach. resealed with clear silicone. One of the large storage bay doors leaked (driver side) and this was caused by the door seal being compressed in the lower hinged corner of door. Placed additional rubber seal over existing and seems to be working. I did run a clothes hanger through the drain holes located in each storage bay and they were clogged with construction debris. They are clear now. Still need to weigh the coach. Tire pressure-I'm running 86 in front and both rears show 84. What are ya'll running?

I wrote about the massive water intrusion due to improperly closed rear door from a hard downpour 2-3 inches of standing water when I found it - still draining out the gasket lined drain hole. Sopped both sides dry and closed the doors properly - first the lock, pull check, then the wing nut latch, pull check. Next down pour no leaks. The dealer had already ordered new seals for all exterior doors. They never mentioned it to me. Some of the other doors were not latched correctly from the dealer. Even the front grill only had one latch closed leaving the other unlocked.

Note to self "Check all exterior doors before traveling or leaving the coach." That goes with all the other new bee checks.
