Slide out leaking

I notice that my slide out leaks water while parked on a level surface, with the slide in the "in position". I did measure the distance of the gap when the slide is closed. There is more of a gap on the opposite side of the slide and no watering is coming in on that side. I inspected the gasket and didn't find anything wrong, I compared both sides and the gaskets look similar. My question is, how hard is it to replace the gasket? There is no signs of the gasket being torn. Could it be possible the gasket is worn out and I just done notice it? Or should I attempt to adjust the entire slide unit?

Tom check the seams and reseal with clear caulking if necessary. I had this problem so its possible you are looking in the wrong area. If the seam is missing caulking, water will get under the floor of slide and make its way into the coach. If you cant tell by looking at the seams, use a razor blade softly to check for gaps in the caulking. With the slide closed there should be 4 seams on the face of the slide.

Had a similar problem on my Islander, on my coach it wasn't the foam seal it was the silicone sealant in between all the corner and top edges. Look for sealant that doesn't quite stick to the coach or the corner moldings. It will look dirty or discolored. I pulled them off, cleaned all of the old silicone off and re-applied sealant. No more leaks. Good luck
