Leak source- 2007 Classic??

I have noticed a spot on my floor between the left side of the door sill and the counter top side panel that has experienced some water leakage. Upon inspection it doesn't look like there is any leakage coming from the door or door frame. There is no sign of moisture on top of the vinyl floor, but the floor under the vinyl has expanded and is a tad soft (area is approx. 1.5" in diameter). Any ideas about where this could be coming from? My best guess is leakage from where the furnace is installed since it is very close by.

My trailer's older. I'm somewhat of an expert on leak discovery and mitigation on one particular trailer. In the beginning I was sure my leaks originated from the top, and a few did. I had leaking top vents and those were easy to detect and fix. The tough ones were the awning channel leaks and the vista window. The hardest one to detect was a mid body seam where 4 panels met. I had to remove the inside skin and sit out in the trailer on a farmer's milk stool holding a poacher's light during every night thunderstorm for a month. During the day I could see that things were wet, but at night with the super light, I could see the leaking joint.

I sealed every seam that I had exposed with Vulkem and that ended the seam leaking. I imagine the next highway trip I take I'll open up a different leak.

My advise is . . . check everything.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

After seeing a discussion about leaks around the rub rail I realize this could also be a very possible location of my leak. I plan to check that out as soon as I can get to it. I'm still recovering from some major heart surgery so it will have to wait a while. Any other suggestions for possible leak paths would be appreciated but these two (rub rail and around where furnace exits trailer) seem the two most likely culprits.
