Check and see if the punch out fins are punched the wrong way that allows water in from the top if so contact Thor or Atwood there is a fix mine done a couple of months ago NC. If you do a search you will see a thread on problem and fixes. Good luck

Water gets onto the circuit board try to dry it with a hair dryer.

First, reseal the door. I used a silicone trim I got at Lowes and ran it along the edge and also where the door meets the little compartment where the control board is. Then dry out the control board, a hair dryer works great. My control board may have gotten wet to many times. It works but is finicky, I may have to replace it, but it stays dry now.
