water in cab issue

i have a problem, every time it rains water leaks in to my truck on the passenger side and gets my fuse box wet and then truck won't start. i have checked the window seal and appears to be fine. i took off the the f250 badge on side and there appears to be a drain hose that comes down thru the a pillar but i can't see where it goes. could that be clogged and overflowing into my truck? i am baffled and irritated. any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Do you have cab lights? If so check those also. If all else fails have someone hold a water hose at certain areas and you watch from inside. Crude method but effective lol!

Does your truck come with a sunroof ?......Oh yeah , it does (since you mentioned the hose down the pillar . Sorry I missed that)
Anyways...I bet the problem is that hose. Is one of four drain hoses connected to each corner of your sunroof. It is clipped down the pillar and runs behind the fender next to door hinges.
You can test it by spraying water on your roof. Take the kick panel out and see what happens. If thats it you can try to pull that hose out and re rout it. If no luck pulling it out , you can just cut it and add a section of the same hose (looks like a 3/8' ) connected with a barb or something. It is just a drain hose anyways. The important thing is to rout it down to outside
