Water logged

Every time I drive thru a rain storm the large storage compartment of
my Palazzo fills with water. I have an inch of standing water in the compartment. Its still raining. Happens every time it rains. I took to camping world and they said they fixed it by adjusting the doors. Next rain same thing. Open for suggestions. Iím afraid the floor will rot out from all the water.

Not a cure
But
I have disposable diapers tucked in the corner of my bins.
One will absorb a pound/pint of water, probably more.

Until you get a fix, two diapers will handle the water.

On order to fix it, you must find the source of the leak. Dry the entire compartment thoroughly, then line the compartment with the diapers (as suggested by ducksface).

Drive a SHORT DISTANCE in the rain... then check the compartment. The idea is to catch the leak as it just starts, NOT after it has flooded the compartment.

You should see where it's coming in... then get to work replacing the door seal, aligning/adjusting the door, or sealing the place where the water is coming in.

You could start by just spraying the outside of the door with a hose for starters... you may find it.
