storage compartment wet

This weekend we stayed in our camper and we needed to run the furnace. The next morning our front and rear storage compartments were both very damp. We have a 2014 Whitehawk, does anyone have any ideas??

Condensation? ( heated interior wall against cold storage area? ).

Or wet, as in water leaking?

Door seals on storage hatches are not all that tight. Had water in my 2014 30dsre and traced it to the door. Had water coming off the roof running directly onto the hindge. Problem is you tend to open it to access the mini fridge and it only takes a few seconds to get water inside. If no rain, and since it was both front and rear, I second condensation at the problem.

Possibly condensation, but it wasn't that cold where I would expect it. It has been raining here for about 40 days and nights

The fact that it's in both compartments still makes me think that unless the elephants have been bathing in the arc, it may be condensation.

Or leaking from Mrs Noah's bath?

Thank you for the replies, I just returned from the dealer for some other warranty work and they changed the rubber gaskets and added some caulk to fix the leaking.
