As a temporary measure, they might try raising the side opposite the slide with boards or "Legos" to try and get the water to run away from the RV. I had a small Arctic Fox trailer that leaked water into one corner of the LR, turned out there was a metal channel trim piece at the bottom of the slide and rain water would run inside it especially if the RV was slightly tilted up on the slide side. Sealing the inside of the channel fixed the problem.

They are from Cal. Will not be home for 3 weeks. They reaised the front so far no more leak. Bought it from CW will not be in one spot long enough for them to get around to fix, and are afraid too try too fix it their self in lieu of warranty. They are leaving out tomorrow will just do as Road Dogs said. Would be nice to know if anybody has had this problem before and what it took to fix it.

Had to help a neighbor with similar issues , turned out the slide seals were pinching pine cones that got pulled in when the slides retracted then got pinched when the slide was run out the next time .
If your neighbors, had been in rain before with no leaks then that sort of thing would be something to look for , if this is the first time in the rain then the possibility of factory defect exists.

Have them use the tape (roof) if they find the spot. While not easy it is removable and should not affect warranty.

Thanks for the advice, I past it on and they are on their way. Were there is usually tape there was a strip of metal with screws, there was one that was lose tightened it and suggested that he put self leveling calk on it then put enéternbond tape over that.
