Leak at top front of slide when slide is in

I have a leak in the house at the top front of slide when it is stored. 1.) I recently had the outside seal replaced with a thicker and wider one. 2.) as well as replacing the outer seal the wiper seal was replaced. I thought it was going to take care of the leak, until a heavy rain yesterday. 3.) I measured the slide awning gap to the front and rear caps, the front is 3 and 3/4 inches shy on fabric and the rear is 1". 4 co.) The front top leans out nearly 1/4" compared to the rear corner.

I would any suggestions. I thought of securing a 1/4" board with silicone near the front corner top so the seal would be tighter. B. maybe buying a slightly larger tarp.

Thanks Gene

Might be water flowing down the side and under the lip that is along the slide. It then may travel inward holding on to the slide bottom until it drops off. Drove me crazy on one of my rear slides. Sealed along the top edge of the cap. The part along the outside bottom edge or trim piece if you will. Also went on bottom side with slide out and ran a bead of silicon a few inches back from the long front edge of the slide to force any water flowing that direction to drop into the outside channel and drain out.
