Dust coming in bathroom

We have a 2010 FC FB. We live on a gravel road and coming home this weekend we found dust throughout the trailer. We travel about 2 1/2 miles on gravel to get home. I had my wife drive and I road in the trailer and it seems the dust is coming up through the cabinets in the rear bathroom. Any ideas on where to start lookin?. Rear window seems tight. Thanks

Start with the holes where the drain pipes go down through the floor to the tanks. Usually they are much larger than the pipe to make it "easier" for the folks to put things together at the factory.
Next, the rear hatch door if you have one, think you do. They generally seal poorly, just enough to accidentally keep water out. So dust will easily get through the poor seal. If the seal is worn and permanently compressed you can replace the seal. One thing I've done is put a small "D" seal on the surface that the seal mates against to help fill gaps in the space, so you have 2 seals meeting each other. You can use "D" window seal avsilable at hardware store for this or order from places like OODM or VTS.
