Has the unit had a Seal Tec machine (duct blower) used to find the point of the leak? If not I think if no one has been able to find the leak this is a good place to start. It may just need to have the room adjusted to close tighter in order to seal properly when closed. Good luck and keep us posted.

Some leaks are so hard to pinpoint. If you can post a few pictures of the outside and inside of the area it might help. Have you checked the rain gutter above the slide for leaves or pine needles? the sealteck has worked for many but did not help me, might have been the tech running the machine. Is their a window in the slide, could it be leaking and the water running out on the ground when the slide open but running on carpet when closed?? Check window to siding caulk and clean the weep holes. Also any seams around the slideout could be leaking the same way, maybe.

Will check out what you mentioned .. the rv is in storage place about 60 miles from where we live ,so will be going to check it next hard rain that we have . we left slide out to see if there was any leak with it out . the last time we did it had no wet carpet . . it is really puzzling because all seals around are new . there is window in slide but it has been checked also . the window is over head of bed . there is no wet spots by bed . it is mostly in front of where closet is but inside closet does not get wet . will try and post pictures after we go up to check it . thanks for info

It was mentioned to check the seams of the slide out room ( not seals). and that was good advice because most likely they are leaking when your slide is out or in. The water would leak to the bottom of the slide floor under the plywood and gain entry to your carpet when slide is closed and leak back to the outside when slide is out..... I had this problem... reseal all the seams with a clear silicone...... if you haven't already....... being that this thread is 6 months old....
