Water leaking in.

Put the camper on the seasonal campsite this weekend. Rained two days straight. I put the slide out in while I was attempting to level the camper. When I put it back out I noticed that the floor was wet on both sides of the slide out where the tracks run to include the carpet. First time this has happened, any suggestions as to what happened? Donít want to put the slide out in after a rain and have that water sitting on the floor and in the carpet where mold and mildew will grow.

check for damaged gaskets under the slide...

but its the nature of the beast... water sticks to the underside.. you slide it in WET... it gets the carpet wet..

You said that you put it in while leveling. Did you have it out while it wasn't level? That might be part of the problem.

Actually could have been from water on the slide top running off inside instead of while slide was out. But that should have shown up where the corner of the slide is over the carpet.

I chased a leak on the slide on our 5'er for two trips. It rained on two trips in a row. I looked and looked and finally found an acorn that got slipped under the seal on the top of the slide.
