2018 Intent compartment leaks

I own a 2018 Winnebago Intent. After a rain event i noticed water had leaked into two of the storage holds. After our trip i simulated the rain by lightly spraying above the door of the offending storage hold for about three mins. The door leaked quite a bit . Any ideas on how i can seal my storage hold doors?

I just ended up drilling small holes in the bottom of the plastic bins to let the water drain out the bottom.

I put strong work lamps inside the compartments, closed the compartments, and then at night every leak showed up as a pin point - or greater - of light leaking out. There were light leaks everywhere.

Have your caulk gun ready and attack every seam and screw hole, and especially look underneath the coach.

If the water is coming around the door weatherstrip, adjust the catches to hold more tightly.

AHH the pleasure of water tight compartments!

I put a VERY bright light in my outdoor kitchen compartment that would literally fill up with water after a heavy downpour like the posts above. Then I added another rubber seal wherever the light shown through. But I also noticed that is wasn’t just where the door contacted the frame, but also the gap between the door itself and the side wall. By adding another seal to fill that gap I finally solved the issue.

I had one compartment leak only once during a pretty heavy rain while on the freeway. I dried it out, and everything in the compartment, and tried to find the leak with light and high pressure water. No luck. But, it never leaked again. Maybe that was the luck?
