Water ingress from side skirt

I was doing a small job under the van this morning when I noticed a damp area on the edge of the bottom of the van near the side skirt that run s all round the van.

Luck to have spotted it as we are off to Spain soon. In the Motorhomes repair shop at Whitstable this afternoon to sort it out.

It appears that water running down the side of the van is getting under the skirt and then has no where to go, it then soaks into the wood work under the van on the edge of the van floor.

Looks like it could be expensive.

Check under the van if you can see or feel any damp then you need to get it sorted. A seam of mastic along the top of the skirt would help but to late for me.
