Strange Leak at Outside Storage Doors
I'm in the middle of a interior repair to mitigate water damage from a roof vent that didn't close all the way (to be reported in another thread). I have the bedroom stripped from the subfloor up to the level of the bed tops, i.e. I have removed the flooring and the floor mounted furniture. This demolition gave me a good view of the inside of the storage doors as I was working.
A rainstorm came up and suddenly there was a slight stream of water running across the floor. The source was the roadside storage compartment door, but in a very odd way. Water was coming up over the gasket, apparently wicking up due to capillary action between the door and the gasket.
These are new seals. I had J. D. Sanders order them about a year ago. When the first set came in they didn't look like the ones I assumed to be the originals in that the door didn't touch the seal when closed leaving a gap of 1/4" or slightly less. David ordered me some new seals after I sent him sketches, pictures and measurements. They looked like the originals but may have been slightly less tall.
Has anyone run into this problem, and if so, what was the solution? I'm thinking of ringing the edge of the doors with a strip of rubber sheet about 1/8" thick and 1" wide.
