Water leak; Help

I have a 2002 Holliday Rambler D/P 40ft. This year while in S. Texas after a rain, I had water down the inside of bed room slide. I have checked the seal the best I could and all looks good. Made sure the seal was out all the way around the slide. I know water can travel, and run down from all most any where. I have a Solar panel close by and thought it might have a leak where the wires inter, to close to roof to see under it. Allso have air cond. close by, thought it might be a seal. Any body have any idea's or have had this problem?? Motor home has metal roof, all seams to look good.

If it was just the once, it could be you were a little more out of level than usual and water got past the seals because of pooling on top of the slide.

Before I got a bit smarter, I once brought the slide in, got in the driver's seat and drove off. First time I hit the brakes, a gallon of ice-cold water poured all over me. Almost impossible for a slide seal to be 100% effective and toppers won't stop rain from blowing in the ends at an angle

The easiest, and most effective way to find a leak is with a hose. If you can, go up on the roof with a hose, and start wetting down an area. While you are on the roof, your helper should be inside, watching. The trick is to go slow, because you want to narrow your search, and going too dastardly will create a problem, without a solution!

Does this slide have a awning type topper and without such, you're sure to get water and especially if leaning to the inside.

Thanks for your input Soricobob, I am home now so will try and isolate my problem. I was going to do that while I was in S.Texas, so I sealed off the air with plastic and tape to eliminate it and then it diden't rain any more. I'm thinking on Arizona this comming winter and it don't rain out there! ha Thanks again---Jack
