Carpet damp under left side twin bed.

I was looking for our winter blankets which are usually stored under our twin beds in our 2009 Classic. I could not find them but noticed the plastic looked a little funny. I took a scissors to it and sure enough the carpet underneath was damp. Is this moisture coming from the outside storage unit?

It could be the outside storage compartment, the back bumper, window seal or leak around lights. I suggest you take it to a dealer capable of using a blower to pressurize the interior and spraying the outside with soapy water to observe where bubbles are occurring.
Have you checked to see if the flooring is soft underneath? If it is not, you may have found the problem before sub-floor damage has occurred.
Good Luck.

One other idea: Reseal rivets and the leak may stop. I had the same issue.

I recently solved a minor leak under one of my twins. The storage access door hinge is riveted to the compartment frame. The rivets are outside the seal that keeps water out. Rain was going in the rivet heads. Capt. Tolleys took care of my problem.
