External Cargo Doors Leaking

The cargo doors appear to be leaking when it rains there's definitely most you're getting inside. Can anyone recommend a fix or a new seal to put around it?

How do the seals look? Are there any gaps in them? Are they dried and cracked? If so, you should be able to replace them. Try looking on Amazon, or Camping World or any other rv supply store. Theses seals need to be conditioned with a rubber conditioner occasioanlly to keep them pliable.

I also saw on another forum some people have had to add silicone to the outside top of their cargo doors because the factory missed a spot. This solved their leaking issue.

Mine leaked too and I determined it was the hinge. I applied spray silicone to the length of the overhead hinge and it stopped it.

I also had a leak when mine was new. Took forever to figure it out. It ended up being the side marker light leaking and running along to the storage area.

I may redo the seals. The rubber seems like it's lost it's shape a bit. It looks fine but maybe it's not sealing all the way.

Hadn't thought of this but it only seems wet on the wood that's right inside the doors.
