Jayco Seneca leaking slide locks


I am having some problem with water coming in which I believe through the slide lock,
I did an internet search and found this forum which by the way it is amazing.
Also found your link however the link provided on your original message does not work.
Anyway, it seems like you have experience with the problem, I am little concerned if this is a design issue, if it is, I guess I am having water coming through the other 2 slide locks on the other side as well, the only difference is I have no way to check, the one I can see water coming in is right on the top of the bed.
How did you resolve this? is there hope?
thank you so much and keep up the good work

Welcome agilityaussi to the Newmar forum and irv2.
Your correct there was a thread in the old forum software that was lost when we switch over to current software. Sorry about that.
Lets see if some members can help us remember the old thread because there was a problem with them slide locks leaking.
So bear with us we'll try to get the answer.

Is this a power gear lock? If so there should be weep holes that rubber tubing attach-es to. There is a rubber box that the mechanism sits in. You could have a clogged drain tube or the tube has come loose from the drain port on the slide out wall. I would try cleaning the drain first and sere if that correct the problem. If is does not the you will have to dis-assemble the lock enclosure for diagnostics.

Thanks for the tip, it is the same information I got from Jayco, I need to take in for the spring on the slide awning anyway, so I will tell them what could be the problem.
Hopefully it would be that easy.
thanks again

Not sure yet, but .....

Talked to Jayco and also the dealership.

This unit does not have vent holes for the slide lock cavity boot rubber. It does have a wheep hole, so it could be the wheep hole is clogged, or disconect from a drain tube if there is one or may be torn. I did find a wasp nest inside, wonder if the damn bug made a hole in there.
It is at the shop right now, we shall see what happens.
thanks for the tips so far.
