Since I have just recently had the hatch doors and frames off and cleaned the surfaces before bedding them in caulk I have to assume that it is coming in from the wall or the back side somehow. I sure hope that the caulk bedding isn't leaking because I painted over the beads to get a clean look. I fear that I will have to remove the actual storage buns which are like big, heavy trash cans and lag to the wall backs and floor above. I don't think I have any window or roof leaks because I had the windows out and resealed them last year and redid the roof with liquid rubber before that but you never know. I should check all of the hardware attaching points on the sides first though. If I pull the bins I will have to look for wet spots, rebuild the inside walls and probably reinforce them with fiberglass to get them to hold well when I reinstall. If I bed them in that may fix it.
Looks like I will get to post a storage bin rebuild thread when I get to it.
