2005 Essex- Water Coming Up Through Carpet at Driverís Side LR slide

Stumped here... I have carpet moisture at the interior corner of my LR slide on my 2005 Essex. @ The storage drawer under the U dinette closest to the TV hutch. Nothing underneath the drawer, nothing under the dining table. Just a 12Ē area. Checked for bathroom leaks as it backs up to the hutch. Nada. No moisture in basement. Slide topper intact. Rubber slide seal in good shape. No visible water accumulation under the slide exterior mechanism. Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

In the slide out? Do you have a fridge on that side? My icemaker water line goes thru the slide and there is a shut off valve below in the basement storage.

If you have a window in that area it may be that the window has a bad seal (the seal/adhesive when it was installed) and water is getting into your interior wall and depositing on the area in question.

I had the same thing happen. It was a loose water line connection under the sink which was quite a bit away, but water travels.

So, you have the dinette on the driver side slide and kitchen on the passenger slide. Reefer in the hall passenger side....correct?


So, is your wet spot under the hutch (fixed/not on slide) or within the slide dinette corner?


Our 4502, when I bring in the driver slide after/during a rain, will drain water that was dumped on the slide roof onto the floor which will cause the water to flow under the hutch. The water appears shortly after driving away due to acceleration ... the water that was trapped on the slide roof flows off the slide end (which is now inside the RV). If I brake hard, the water will go the other way and shows up between the forward slide end and the driver's chair. We just mop with a paper towel since it only occurs under the described circumstances. BTW, we have full tile flooring and the funky "nightclub" dinette.

The other thing to check is the floor drains ... they are located under the base of the "columns" at the ends of the slides. You can see them when the slide is pulled in. Sometimes they will have debris.

We had something similiar happen. The culprit was the slide lock paddle. The gasket behind the lock had been damaged allowing rain water to enter
