Water leak in 30 RBQ bedroom

After driving all day in heavy rain, I found some water in the bedroom coming out of the USB and bed-switch outlets on the rear-TV side of the bedroom.

A quick look outside didn't identify any obvious seal gaps but there is a running light almost opposite where the outlets are but again no obvious gaps.

Curious why the water would come out of the outlets rather than run down the inner wall do the floor--maybe a lateral rib at the outlet level is catching the water?

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Water has a knack for being mysterious. In the early days of my 2019 Flying Cloud, I had a total of 4 water leaks over the first 3 heavy rain storms we encountered.

Only one of the leaks (Fantastic Fan seal) was obvious; the other 3 were very tricky. Where we observed the water was nowhere near the source of the leaks. If the service center didn't pressurize the trailer and spray soapy water on the entire outside to find the bubbles, I'm not sure we would have ever tracked down the origination points. I tell this long story to make a relevant point: One leak was coming through an electrical outlet, but we found the water was getting in behind the seal on the front window rock guard plexiglass. The entry point and the exit point are quite far from each other.

Once identified, it was an easy fix. Good luck.

Water always finds the path of least resistance.

Start high and work low. The faster you can seal it up the better. Be on the lookout for missing, damaged, or light sealer areas.
