Not sure what that mode is to the upper corner but if that looks like it would pass water and you have the inside skin off I would seal that area from the inside. If the open area appears to be small I would use aluminum gutter sealant as that can be applied and then worked into place with a small acid brush.

I would not attempt to seal from the outside for reasons of looks and mechanical buildup that might cause other problems.

If the door latch assembly also is leaking I would do the same around its edges the same way from the inside.

What is the hole below the door latch in the second picture?

That hole is just the keyed deadbolt. Had to remove it to get the skin off. I will follow your suggestion and seal from the inside. Just need to remove the upper skin.

I do not know what the damage to the door was but they made a sloppy repair.

Water inside door

OK, this is going to sound weird, but it worked for me. The curve of the door is flattening and does not allow the rubber seal to work. It was suggested on this forum to stand inside the trailer with the door slightly open, put your knee in the bend of the door and pull towards yourself lightly. It works, just careful because when I first did this, I had to push back out to get door back to where it closes properly. This will fix any leaks around top of door.
