I used 3M electricians tape and clear plastic sheet when I was dealing with my baggage door issues over a week period. No issues with stains or removal.

Thanks for the tip John. I peeled the tape off and already had glue left behind that took me an hour to clean off.
Raising the front of the trailer to send rain water to the rear then I'll try painters tape. I'm taking it to the dealer Monday and insist they fix it or store it inside.

Slow I applied a bead of silicone caulking along the top of my compartment door hinges. I have blue painters tape on the window now. A couple of rains and no more leaks.
When I get home I will install exterior waterproof painters tape and take it to the dealer for repair.
Thanks everyone for your help.

If you have electric where you keep it you may want to run a dehumidifier in there until you can get it into the shop. Glad you were able to get the leak stopped until you get it fixed.

I removed everything from under the bed and front storage. I dried it up thoroughly with towels. I had a couple of very nice days that I could leave everything opened up to dry out. I think it should be okay now as long as the dealer fixes it properly. I'm very concerned that water has entered the walls. I may talk to the owner of the dealership to see what he will do if I see delamination in the next couple of years. I'm seriously considering trying to work something out with them to replace the unit.
Thanks.

Ok I just heard back from my dealer. They got it in the shop and resealed the window. They repositioned the gutter and sealed it. They said they soaked it down and no sign of water. I won't be able to pick it up for about 10 days. Hopefully it's all repaired now. I'm thankful they were able to get it in so quickly. I have a trip planned for the end of the month. I will report back on my findings.
Another thing I noticed was there was very little caulking where the awning bracket fasteners are mounted to the side of the trailer. I caulked all the heads of the fasteners before taking it to the dealer. I may also add some additional caulking where the top clearance ights are mounted.
Thanks everyone for your assistance.
