Water inside of bedroom

This is the second time I found water on the floor in my bedroom. Thor Hurricane 31S model. This was after a heavy rain over the weekend and the RV was in the storage lot. I see that the water is along the wall by the water heater, but there is no water inside the bay where the water heater is located. I checked the windows and the vent over the bed, but I can't find the source of the water. Since the RV is leaning down toward the right side of the RV (as you look at the rear of the RV) I think water is coming in and pooling in this area. I also checked the electrical bay under the bed and found no water. Vent over the bed was closed and no water was on the bed.

In the photo you can see the wood damage that is occurring and the dry heater bay. The water was in the area at the bottom of the photo.

I even drained all of the water from the heater before I put it into storage. My wife is suggesting I go ahead and get a cover for the RV since I can't find the source.

Any suggestions?

Fire up the water heater get pressure on it and check fittings. Water is a weird animal and can run a ways before it shows up. Even with the water off it will hold pressure for days.

Is it coming in around the water heater? Any windows close? Between the roof and top of the sidewall?

I had water pouring in once in a heavy downpour and wind, there were gaps all around the water heater panel on the side on the coach. I took the panel off and resealed it and its been fine since. Double checked it with garden hose.

Thanks and another photo.

Thanks for the replies. I will check them out. Here is another image of where the water was located in the RV.

I apologize, my leak was coming from no gasket between the furnace housing and coach, not the water heater. My memory is less then perfect these days.

The OP's image of the floorplan shows an outside kitchen in that area. Even though the plumbing was drained before storage, I'd still look at the plumbing that feeds that outside sink.
