Main room slide water leak (retracted) 2015 Revolution

Finally located a leak source coming from our main room slide when retracted. It is coming in and pooling on top of slide and running down the inside wiper seal and across the floor. If heavy rains it is more then a small leak. Yesterday during a down pour it was several cups in just a few minutes. I am going to start checking things out but looking for ideas, Do not believe it needs it but does anyone know how to reset the slide timing stops? I did notice a slight bow along the vertical front edge of the slide but the bulb seal appears to be on contact with the wall. Would not account for the water coming in on top of the slide in either case. Not easy to check bulb seal under topper. I just returned for REV (factory service center) where I was advised there was no leak found. Drove eight-hours home where we had two rains and water on the floor both times. Does not appear to be happening when the slide is extended. Any insight would be appreciated.

No magic fix here, It will just take some serious looking and checking to find it I'm sure. It could be leaking elsewhere and running over to the slide under the ceiling material. I would recommend you take the slide topper loose from the slide and set it up on the roof. You can find several videos of how to do this and how to lock the springs on YouTube. It's actually really easy. Once you have the topper out of the way you can get a good look at the seal and check it with a water hose. Good luck.

Make sure your slide is all the way out (fully extended). Interior seals should keep water from coming in. Is the coach level? The tops of slide out are slightly sloped so water runs to outer edge of the slide but if coach is not level, this will defeat the purpose of the sloped roof design.

I believe the OP said it only leaks when the slide is closed.

The leak I had like that was coming in at the very top corner, where the topper didn't quite hover well. After it got in on top of the top seal, the water would just run along the seal until it found a place it could squeeze through to the top of the slide, then to the front since my parking was slightly downhill at home.
