Water leak in Small bedroom slide

After 3 days of rain here in Houston with the remnants of Hurricane passing through from west coast I have fond a small wet section of carpet at the bottom of the front of the small bedroom slide. Its not a heavy leak more like water seaping in. There are signs that this has happened before but I think only when the slide is out. I have not had an opportunity to investigate outside around the side but all the rubber gaskets appear to be in place. Any thoughts thanks

Don:

I had a MH prior to my current 5er and it had "overflow cups" inside the slide tracks for the intent of routing the water back outside. Quite often these overflow cups would get overwhelmed and leak onto the floor inside the rig. We just started staging small towels at the base of all of our slides. Then after a torrential downpour we'd just swap out the towels until it quit raining.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but these rigs often times fail when Mother Nature throws a serious curve at them.

Good luck.

I had same think happen and was having a hard time figuring it out during our spring rains. Mine ended up being a window. I felt really stupid but rained so hard the window was not draining quick enough. Took 3 rains until I figured it out. I thought it was my slide

How much of an over hang to you have. my toper hangs 2 inches past the flanges on both sides I measured it to be that way. Even with a hard rain my slide is dry on out side but can't say that if it's a driving rain. Maybe your seals aren't tight against the slide not much else it could be hope you figure it out
