Slide out water leak

On a 2006 country coach with four slide outs, during a recent rain storm i noticed that three of my slides have water on the floor. Investigation doesn't show any reason why. Searching back a few years on the original CC newspaper the tech manager this was one of the few issues these coaches had on the roof seal.
HAS ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCED THIS CONDITION ON A OLDER UNIT?

Several CCs of that vintage have stainless steel angle iron places at the bottom edges of the slides. These are only held on with sealant. They can loosen up and direct water into the seam where the side of the slide meet the bottom. People recommend removing, revealing and riveting them in place.

Also at the tops there are similar angle irons. On my 2005 Inspire there was a place where they overlapped with a piece of the outside and created a pocket to hold water and ultimately leaked.

I had a bad bedroom slide leak in the seams, this is what I used. Takes 24 to 36hrs to dry.

David, I have to warn you about Floyd, he is quite the motormouth He does have a lot of good info so a session with him is worth it.

Barb and I will be a day late as we will be in Coos Bay at the Northwest Area planning meeting for the June rally. Going to miss the pizza, dang it.

No pizza, more for me

Dragging this back to life. So on the top of the slide we have a slide topper that rolls out when the slide extends. How do you remove it or move it out of the way so you can seal the angle piece?
I know this has been discussed but I just can't find it.
Thanks in advance.

I just did the front and back edges

I just did the front and back edges and about 2' into the outside seam.
To remove the slide topper you have to go to CareFree of Colarodo website and get their instructions. I have gotten them but my leak was along the front and back.

Not difficult. If you have the Carefree SOKII toppers with cover, you will need to remove the top of the cover first. It has spring loaded pins which must be depressed at each end (mine were rusted and required a center punch to get them compressed) to release the cover. For the longer toppers, there is also a sliding catch in the middle at the bottom of the top cover that must be moved to the right to release it at the bottom.

Once the cover is removed, you have to put a nail, bolt or cotter pin thru a hole in the right end of the roller to keep it from unrolling when you remove the roller. Once that is done, remove the center Allen screw at the left end and the roller will come out. You can just lay the roller on the roof while you work on your slide room. Once done, insert right end of roller, replace screw on left end, then unpin the right side. Replace cover and you are done.

I used eternabond tape on the seams of my slide rooms. That was before I read about the brush on Pro flex sealant.

What I did was washed the top of the slide then let it dry, went to Walmart and got a 2" sponge roller and screwed it onto a broom handle then poured some Pro-Flex on the top and rolled it on that seam then went on the other side and did the same thing. Let it try for about 48hrs before putting the slide in. Never removed the topper.
I used the same thing on all seams works great, no leaks
