Scoffer drains plugged? Window bead seating gone bad. Is it just on the floor or does the ceiling show signs of water intrusion. Maybe pictures? Any water supplied units in the area at floor level?

Any chance the rain is a coincidence and the valve is leaking on the Vacu-flush? Also, I'd look very carefully at the light overhead to see if you see any signs of water stains. I'm trying to remember what's overhead but I'm thinking a leaky window in the Pilot House or something along those lines could cause water intrusion from above to drip through that light in the middle.

Did sealing the window fix the leak? If not, any new ideas? Dave.
