Water on top of slideout

We had very high winds and rain a few days ago (Fort Pierce Fl) and some water accumulated on top of the galley side slideout and slowly found its way inside, anyone ever had the problem and how have you solved it.
My rig is a Pace Arrow 37C 2005
Any help will be appreciated

I had that problem and discovered the slide was not going all the way out so was not sealed against the side of the moho. Adjusted slide and no more problem.

mine is even stranger - on the awning covering the galley slide, there are about 6 perfect round holes at about 1 inch in diameter crossing from front to rear, at 1/3 of the wideth from outer edge. why the manufacturer would do that i don't know but it guarantees the water getting onto the top of the slide. i am in west coast, not much rain here so not feeling the urgency to replace it, but plan to do it soon.

Do you have slide toppers? If so, perhaps one of them has lost some of it's tension and needs adjusted? Still, water shouldn't leak inside so this would not be the root problem.... nevermind.....

I do have slide toppers, and the tension is ok.
I have no holes as mentionned by Country Fit.
I'll verify if the slide goes all the way out, but seems it does.
I must say that the rain and winds were reaaaaaaaaally strong the time water entered, and I also notice that the slide slope is flat instead of going down a bit towards the outside
Thanks very much guys, wish a Pace Arrow owner could also reply
Have a great day

Water on top of slideout

Might try putting a level on top of your slide to see if it is indeed flat or slightly tilted back towards the coach. Gravity is a nasty thing at times and water always runs down hill. Just because your coach is level the slide may not be. In a long or heavy rain I try to raise up the opposite side so the water can run off a little faster. Also, wind driven rain can find its way into some mighty strange places and will make water defy gravity.

The slide roof on your coach is designed to be flat - no slope away from the sidewall. And the slide topper is not intended to keep water out - it is basically a falling debris catcher.

If water gets inside the coach, you probably have a slide seal problem. It may have come loose, or maybe just got worn or torn. Another possibility is a leak in the slide roof itself. The roof is probably covered with a rubber sheet material and may have a tear or a loose seam at the edge. Somebody needs to climb a ladder and check out the leaking area to see just what it is, and then repair accordingly. This is NOT an rare problem.
