Wet rug near bedroom slide

Noticed today a wet, not soaked, rug area at the bedroom slide. So I quess that means the slide leaks. DUH !!! We had alot of rain. I brought the slide in and the bottom runners seem very wet. Could the coach have been just alittle unlevel and the rain ran off the slide awning? It rained in Florida just 3 days ago and we didn't have a leak then. Concrete pad in Fl. Gravel pad leveled by me at the house. Any suggestions...D

Morn'n Folks,

Let me offer a possible solution. Recently after a period of heavy rain I had occasion to pull in my bedroom slides. I too noticed a damp spot at the end of one slide. I was on the low side of the coach. I like you suspected a leak until it dawned on me that the heavy rain had been driving right under my slide topper and pooling a small amount of water on top of the slide. When I pulled the slide in the motion dislodged enough water to follow the path of least resistance onto my carpet. Had that path been outside main body of the coach with the slide extended I never would have known it. Now a quick look on the top of the slides is a standard check when pulling 'em in. Now what made me think of this involves a dear friend, a DS slide with topper just behind the drivers seat, raging snow storm, a decision to move, and the "Chilling" screams of several gallons of wet snow applied to the back by braking actions. Good Luck and have fun,

Ol'Joe

This may sound strange but check the TOP SEAL on the slide.. Under the Slide topper

IT appears that on my coach the seal is supposed to look something like this _/_

But it looked more like this

and water would get in on top, then run down the side and soak the carpet

Anyone know how to raise up a ACCU-SLIDE slide out?

I had this problem with my bedroom slide so bad that I actually had to replace the wood floor. I FINALLY located the source of the leak. It was the window next to the slide. I could not see the problem without getting on a ladder. Then I could see the silicone above the window shrunk and there was a gap between the window frame and the old silicone.
