Are you running down the road with the front compartment door unlocked? It won't seal all the way if you are. Check the seals on both of the front compartment doors ... one may be folded over. Check the caulking around the light and battery vent. Check the seams on both sides where the fiberglass siding and the plastic front panel joins. Spray water on the front of the storage compartment under the bedroom, then check for leaks. If it's a new rig ... let the dealer look into this. Worse case is something on the front cap is leaking, but I sorta doubt if the water would run that far back as I believe it would be soaked up by the insulation.

Our rig has a partial cut out on the curb side of the front storage compartment where the generator would have been located if it had been ordered. I have a mat in there over the cut outs to keep water thrown from my trucks wheels from getting into the compartment that way.

Joe, I ran into the same problem with my 3400RL. I replaced the seal with material from Lowes that looked about the right size. I made sure that the corners were tight and have not had any leaks since.
