Leaks!!!!

I purchased a 2000 19' Scamp recently that my wife and I are fixing up. After a long, sustained rain last week, I noticed that there was some water under the rear dinette windows on the fiberglass bench frame (photo 1). The rat fur was also wet here. I also noticed that there was water and some green mold on the rubber sealing at the bottom lip of the window (photo 2). I know that the standing water on the bench frame is a problem, but what about the water on the inside of the sealing? Could that just be from condensation? I'm planning on doing research on here on how to remove the windows, seal them with butyl tape, and then replace them...I'm assuming that would be the best thing to fix this, but would love to hear your thoughts.

I also noticed some standing water on the bottom cabinet, under the wardrobe closet (photos 3 & 4). I can't figure out how it go there though. The floor of the cabinet has some bad water damage, but I don't see any water damage in the wardrobe closet above it, or in the closet next to it. Any ideas on how to find the source of this water leak? It seems to not be following the rules of basic gravity

I would love to fix these leaks before the winter sets in so any help is much appreciated! Thank you

Brett

I answered your question in the Scamp Owners forum, but the summary:

Check window weep holes.

Check door seal.

Replace door seal, no matter what you find.

When ordering from Scamp, place your order via phone if you want the best shipping cost.

Thanks for the reply on both forums, Lyle! I'll be checking the weep holes today. Here's hoping it's that easy!
