There are lots of very knowledgable folk on here that I'm sure are willing to help. You need to provide a bit more information. Give a few more details on the model of your unit, do the slides leak when open or closed or both? Can you give us a better description of where the leak appears to be coming from (top, bottom, sides)?

Have you inspected the seals for damage and proper fit? Hint: To locate the leak more exactly, apply baby powder around the inside of the seals - any leakage will leave an obvious track back to the source.

Yes, they are leaking on the side, one leaking driver side leaking behind drivers seat, ditch side leaking on back end, bed room leaking on front side. All showing up on floor. Only leaks when rains a lot and hard.How many seals does each slide have? Can a owner change them? Is seal expensive? Thanks

I just replaced the seals on driver side slide. It is easy to do there are several Phillips head screws on vertical rails that pull out(you can see them with slide extended)the seals are exposed after removing these.New seals are sold by the ft.at the dealer or order from Lichtsinn Motors like I did.If yours are leaking bad I would try to see why-torn or damaged or what?Mine had shrunk, at least that is what it appeared to be, there was a gap at the top corners.
