Outside TV Compartment Water Tight?

We've had several weeks of rain, some of it pretty heavy. This afternoon I was giving my son-in-law a run through of everything he needs to know to borrow the rig for a week and when we opened the outside TV compartment, there was water in the inch wide ledge at the bottom of the compartment. I wondering if this is an indication that the TV set itself may of gotten wet. I couldn't find any indication of water on the set, but ????

Have any other Axis/Vegas owners run into this issue?

Is that water inside the seal, or outside? If it is inside, that is serious, and you likely need to replace the rubber seal. If it is outside, that is normal after a rain. Chances are good that the TV didn't get wet inside, but you want that and all compartments to stay dry.

Afraid it's inside. The channel, about an inch wide underneath the set. Not a lot of water but enough to have me worried.

Try spraying some silicone and wiping down the seal really well, they get dry and sometimes that will help. You need to get the tv compartment dry, the moisture will affect your tv!

We keep our rv inside when we are home. We went out to San Francisco California last Dec. through Feb. They had a lot of rain. I would check things and all compartments stayed dry. Lucky us!

i doubt any water is getting on the tv, what you are most likely seeing is the water that is from under the front lower lip of the door as it seeps into the opening, but the inside should also have a weep hole to allow it to escape

Turns out there was a gap in the gasket at the top of the compartment. Repaired this, now we'll have for another rainy day to see how well it holds. Fingers crossed.
