Georgie Boy Pursuit: floor rot in slide

I purchased a 2006 35ft Georgie Boy, model Pursuit in 2013. This past summer i noticed the floor of the slide becoming soft at one corner near the exterior wall near the front of the bedroom slide. It got more pronounced so I pulled up the carpet to discover rotten particle board floor, an area now approx 4ftX5ft. The water feed lines to the kitchen are fine as the water pump does not cycle during dry camping. The drain also appears to be tight. Only thing I can figure is the slide rubber is not doing its job when it rains. It appears to make a good seal and there is an awning over it. I have in the past just retracted the slides while still level, but last time there was rain, I was told I should lower the front or rear first to let any rain flow off before retracting the slides, then level the rig again before retracting the slides/.
Caulking on the roof appears good. Going to replace the floor with plywood.
Anyone else heard of this problem?

Is the area under a window? If so check the window itself for leaks with a garden hose. Particularly vertical bypass style as the gutter holes are not generally able to withstand any significant flow without water leaking under the glass. You may find some soft panelling under the culprit window right above the floor.

Unfortunately it happens more often than you think. There even are youtube videos on how replace the floor on a slide, not fun but doable. Best of luck.
