Do you mean a side locker? If so its probably a bad seal around the locker door or the locker has not been pushed enough in to actually lock it into place. One of our side lockers you have really to push hard to hear the click that it is shut.

Or could the leak be higher up the caravan wall and only appearing around the locker, eg is there a window above the locker?

We had an external "caravan-style" leisure battery locker on a previous motorhome and when we first had it that would fill the battery tray with water!...

There was no adjustment on the lock nor hinges and a new rubber didn't solve it.
In the end I ran length of self adhesive rubber(3mm?) around the closing face on the frame.

This type of stuff

(any moisture/droplets on the lock, may just be condensation?)

But despite my waffle, as Keith says, check for leaks above first...
