Leaking slide!

We have our dinning slide on our 312 bhbs Salem that at the end of the season last year I noticed that we had some leaks coming through the light above the kitchen table. I was wondering if this could possibly be coming from the slide itself ? I am going to retake the aluminum joints this year coming up or should I take it to the dealer and let them asses how much damage was actually done.

That could be expensive but would probably be the best way to go. There may have been a leak long before it got bad enough for you to see. There could be damage inside the walls or floor and you wouldn't know it.

Wishing you the best with your camper, the sooner you find the source of the leak , the better. One of the best ways to prevent future leaks it to make sure to do a check of the roof and slide outs at least twice a year, we make a point to check at the beginning of the camping season and at end of the year.

I actually found the source. You know where they tape the seem around the outside of the slide apparently something must of got lodged in there and ripped the tape in the corner so the joint was exposed hopefully I caught it in time.
