We are having a problem with both of our bedroom slides leaking at the bottom. The seals seem to be tight and we cannot figure out where the leaks are coming from. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix the it?

We had a wet floor after a rain but figured it was because we brought the slide in too quick and the water came in that way.

We've also had wet floor on the passenger bedroom side after a heavy rain, driver side seems ok. We figured it blows in sideways at the bottom. Only fix so far is retract the slide when it rains.

We have a 2003 Alpine mid-door 40'and had leaks on both slides...the cause is poor design of the slide tops!...I used a special caulk from WRV to re-seal the full length of the slide top membrane (both inside and outside edges)and the inside corners (the corners are the real problems). I also built small dams (1-1.5"long by 1/4" high) of caulk on the slide tops, at the corners where the outside top edges meet the gaskets on the coach when the slides are fully open. These dams help divert any water collecting on the slide tops to the outside of the coach....Note: saw these dams on the 2006 Apex slides--fact!

We also have a bad leak in the (one) bedroom slide. This one is a mystery, as we don't see any water coming in at the seals. Instead it drips from a metal brace that runs along the wood at the front base of the closet.

Somehow the water is traveling through the slide and then dripping from underneath.

This only happen in rainy storms with a lot of wind, and it takes a while for the water to appear. We think under these conditions the water is getting blown up under the slide cover. But for the life of us we can't figure out how it's getting down to the inside bottom.

The inside of the closet is bone dry.

We figure the factory will have to figure this one out.

If we retract the slide - no problem.
