Elusive Leak

Hi everyone, I have a 2004 Tiffin Allegro Bay 36LB on a W22 chassis. When it rains, the carpet along the wall on the passenger side, under the passenger window, gets wet. I have siliconed all the way around both the large unit with the sliding glass window and the little "pet" window; All to no avail. The divider strip between the upper body and the basement doors, which is just about floor level, appears to be sealed. Does anybody have any ideas as to where else the water could be coming from? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Terry

Pay a reputable company to do a SealTest. They will pinpoint all leaks and you can either fix them yourself or pay them to seal things up.

Silicone caulking is not a good sealer. You need buytle caulking to really seal.
Did you ever see mildew behind the silicone caulk? And, did you ever pull off silicone caulking with your fingers? That's because it doesn't seal.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
