Default wet storm door

Both of my storm doors have water on the inside on the glass bad. I moved the plate back to make a tighter fit. The front door had some light so i used some caulk-where the glass comes out. What else can i do?thanks

Are you sure it is not condensation? Moisture in the inside air will condence on cool glass.

Moisture on the storm door would indicate that the main inside is not sealing well. Warm air is leaking out and condensing on the cold storm door.
