Tank Shroud

I noticed on the tank shroud that is bolted around the waste tanks that there is a weep hole. After driving through rainstorms today for the first time I noted water draining in drops from the weep hole and around the flat aluminum sheets that are forward of same. Not a lot and over the last few hrs is has slowed to almost a stop.
Crawled under and found open areas between front stabilizer and shroud - appears sealant fell out?
Did the obvious checks inside with no signs of plumbing leak. As this is a FC 27FB most of the plumbing is rearward half of trailer.
Comments and suggestions welcome - we are home and have the full shop of tools

My suggestion is to add weep holes to make sure no water is trapped in the underbelly. Years ago, I drilled 1/8" holes in all of the low spots in the belly pan after finding trapped water by accident.

Very good for sealing entry points in the belly pan is butyl rubber sealant material. I have had good experience with this version: https://www.amazon.com/XFasten-8-Inc...er%2Caps%2C191.
