1998 Fleetwood Southwind 32V slide leaks

Rain water is leaking in on my sofa. The horiziontal top wiper seal is not sealing the room from rain water. Looking from inside i can see daylight from midway of the top and to the left 1/8 to 1/4 inch as if the room is not squaring up with the seal . Is there an adjustment to raise the left side so it contacts the rubber wiper seal? The topper has been replaced. The RV was level when i checked the upper vertical seal. The seal is in good condition just doesnt contact the top of the slide. any suggestions? comments welcome, TIA Oran

My 1998 Pace Arrow had the same problem. I took the screws out of the seal going across the top and lowered it so it made contact. That helped a little.

The main problem was it needed caulked on the inside top of the slide out where the flange sticks up. Water was getting on the top and leaking through the gap onto the couch.
