Water leak at corner of front slide out

On my 2007 Diplomat, the carpet gets wet at the front lower corner of the front slide out. Anyone had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it? The seals all look good. Thanks for any advice.

Use a dealership that utilizes seal tech to pressurize the RV. Your leak may be entirely in a distant location than you expected and this inexpensive procedure will identify the area or areas. I'd then recommend eternabond for a permanent seal. Easy peasy!

Could be as simple as caulking. I've seen where owners are very diligent in caulking their roof, but fail to do the same with the slide roofs. It's a little more difficult to do, because you need a ladder to do it.

In the meantime tilt the coach so the water drains away from entering the interior.

gaskets on inside and outside

Just remember, you have gaskets that seal the slide when it is open and a set for when it is closed. Both of these need to seat properly, especially at the top.

And, of course, your RV must be level so that your slide roof is also level for proper drainage of rain water.

I had this problem on a motorhome I owned (2007 Monaco camelot) and it turned out that I had two problems; 1-my gaskets had hardened, and 2- the slide was not seated properly at the top-front of the slide.

If there is a widow on the side of the slide make sure and reseal it using Proflex or something similar. It has been a known issue with that slide.
