newbie's and we've detected a leak in front compartment

We purchased a used 2006 25 ft Safari in Aug 2014. In Nov. we had it 'resealed' by a reputable AS repair man. We had a severe rainstorm last month and just found a considerable amount of water in the front storage compartment. We've cut the carpet and padding and have rolled it back to dry. Wood flooring is wet also. We don't know if it's leaking from the seam / edging (rub rail) or from faulty weatherstripping around the compartment door? We have not felt any dampness on carpet in FB. Any suggestions in troubleshooting this problem?

Hi, front storage doors and front panoramic windows are known for leaking.

You didn't say whether this is an FB model, but for the moment I'll pretend that it is. If so, check this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516...ak-125430.html and this particular post from Robert: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516...ml#post1565897

Best wishes for a dryer storage compartment!

We'll be trying the same fix next week when we get our trailer back from the dealer.
