08 So Wind "Rain leak @ Slide latchs

When it rains hard and I have the slide open, I get water inside (lots of water) comes in @ Latch mec. Water puddles on slide topper, then pours over the side, some getting inside. In the pouring rain I placed duct tape over the top area of the opening of the latch area. It worked. But has to be a better way. Any ideas?

You probably already attempted this, but have you put a little 'lean' on that side? How about some tension on your slide topper? Some have put beach balls etc under their toppers to divert and prevent pooling.

Buy a rubber ball an inch or 2 bigger than the distance between the slide and topper. Then put it between the slide and topper to create a runoff path away from the slide.
