I placed weatherstripping close to the top on the inside of the aluminum front to keep water from running down the side of the motorhome and on top of the slide compartment. There was already plenty of caulking between the aluminum front and the plastic cover of the compartment. There are no water lines at that location; the compartment is directly below the dining table and benches. I will be going camping for the first time next week so I will see if I still get an accumulation of water in this compartment since I will be getting into this compartment more often.

The point I am trying to make is you need LESS caulk at that point so that it forms a gutter, and runs away.
They were overfilled at the factory, and it negated the whole design!

I knew I had a pic showing better what I was trying to explain...
Here it is...

Blue line is what happens, putting water ON the plasic lid.
Red is what should happen..

I understand what you are saying, I will check again and modify if I find it not to my satisfaction and is not similiar to yours.
Thanks,
