slideout leak

While on recent trip at rv park, was parked for three days. Two of those days it rained a lot. Got ready to leave and discovered carpet and things in cabinet in rear slide were soaked.
Got home and checked top of slide (under slide cover) and couldn't see any visible problems. The sealent tape seemed in joint seemed to be ok.
Any ideas anyone?

hello augar boy and welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Be sure to go to the "user CP' button and edit a signature with the information of your rig so we can be more helpful with any questions you have. The more information you can give us on a particular issue the more accurately we can help you diagnose the problem.
I would suggest you bring the slide out in and use a mirror if need be to look at the seal of the roof material to the inside fascia. I had to completely redo one a couple weeks ago.

Hi augar boy,
RV Wizard has asked the right question. Can you tell us the make, model, year and anything else about your coach that would help us help you. In addition, scroll down the main forum page and check out the manufacturer specific forums. If you coach was built by one of these manufacturers, post the problem in that forum. The leak may be specific to how that manufacturer built their coaches.

I am a little slow where pc's are concerned , that being said what and where is the cp button. Also our rig is an 07 travel supreme alant'e 45 with 500 cummins.
We are still working for a living so we only travel as much as we can get off .
A lot of the small problems we have had and will continue to have we try to fix them if possible as there is no one within 150 or so miles that work on mh. I have found this forum very helpful in making minor repairs as I have read that others have had similar problems and learned from them.
thanks!

You have a nice coach and probably two slide outs in the bedroom. With the rooms in first check to be sure some foreign object has not fallen on the floor behind the flanges causing the room not to seal. Does the rooms look like they are sealed up tight from the outside? Extend the rooms and feel around the inside perimeter for good seal. What did you find?
User CP button is just under the panoramic photo at top of page.
