Need help...leak!!!

Ok, so not long ago I posted that my husband and I had a leak between kitchen and bedroom and on one side of bedroom slideout. We re-caulked and sealed the roof again, placed new wiperseal on the bedroom slideout. Hadn't had any leaks but last night had a really good rain and again same leaks, I can put my fingers up where the wiper seal is under the slide(its where the bed is so its up on a step), I could feel the water coming in from seal where you have to cut to make the corner, it was glued to help seal that part. On the other slide us where the kitchen is, the water is coming from somewhere on top, we have a awning over this slide so we are at a loss on where to look and how to seal. There is a gutter that comes from the front to the back right above the slide not sure if that is the problem and if so how to fix it. Please help with any thoughts or fixes.

Thanks to all who have responded to my post before they are really helpful!!!

Your slideout topper seams may be leaking, so water is getting onto the top of the slideout and running down inside the seals...use some clear Flex Seal and spray it on the seams to seal them...bet that stops your leak. I know from experience.

If you choose to waterproof your slide topper, you may want to consider using one of the silicon based, spray on water sealers. You can find it at most camping supply or sporting goods stores. It is typically used to water proof camping tents. Goes on clear.

The one slide is leaking right_. Temporarily, after leveling the coach, lower the slide-side 1-2", and see it that stops the water intrusion. If it does place a level on the slide roof and again on the floor of the MH, compare the two readings. if they are the same it's just the seals, if not there is a good chance the slide is not extending completely and it's roof is slanting inward, directing water to the seals, meaning there are two problems.

Leak in bedroom

Thanks for the replies guys...hope each of you had a Wonderful Holiday!! So for the seal, we have white flex seal but seems to make ripples when sprayed, have you guys tried the clear? Where all do you use the flexseal, does it come loose after driving? Also, we leveled the RV again, but then the rain stopped.

Thanks again for the great ideas!!
