Problem with slides

When towing our 5th wheel in the rain, the floors around them are soaked by the time we arrive at our destination. Suggestions on what to look for and how to fix would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not closing all the way or bad gasket/seal. Go inside with them closed and look all around for day light leaking in. Use a piece of paper to check your seal just like you would on a refrigherator door. The paper should have stiff resistance when pulling it out after closeing the slide on it from the outside. Check on all sides in multpal locations. Good luck

I agree with chief02. The gaskets are either worn or need replacing/adjustment. Don't know how old your trailer is but some owners can handle this themselves. If not up to it, it is something the dealer/rv repair can fix pretty easily. Your problem is not that uncommon.
