After polishing, leaks appear ...

Hi there;

I suppose it's after my airstream was polished, because no leaks before that.
when it 's raining for a long time, all the electrical equipment between the fridge and the front of the caravan is out and the fuse of that circuit get off. is it possible it's the way that my caravan was polished , and now water get into the aluminium body from outside to get wet the wires and get off this wiring fuse ?
i wondered if the product to get off the clear coat, had distroyed joints between aluminium panels ?
is or was somebody in this leak situation and what to do ?

thank you by advance for your advices;

Its quite possible that the leak is a result of the clear coat stripping inadvertantly pulling some sealent out of the seams.

Acryl-R the seams.
Thats with applicator. probably need a couple cans. the refill cans with out applicator are on the first page of that section.
