Water intrusion behind driver

Weíre replacing the carpet and found a very wet spot behind the drivers seat. Iím assuming it leaked from the slide out but at first glance the seals appear good.

Any ideas on where to look so I can get this leak fixed?

I am replacing flooring now and also found water intrusion damage in a bit differnt location. It was from behind the belly band trim strip at the floor line in the exterior wall directly under the drivers window. You should check out this post detailing a leak and repair behind drivers chair. Hope it isn't too scary.

Water can accumulate on the top of the slide if the slide toppers arenít holding water, so to speak. Take a look after the next rain. If thereís water, lower one end or the other to see if it will drain prior to retracting the slide. If not, get on a ladder with a squeegee on a telescoping pole and remove the water.

…..slides can be an issue but you usually see the problem before it gets to the point of rotting.....the other end of the slide [behind kitchen cabinets] is more problematic--you don't notice it right away....behind the driver's seat--I would vote for the caulk cracking on the top seam of the belt-line--this is a common issue.....another area is underneath the windows--during fogged window replacement, installers often forget to caulk the screw holes for the vertical frame members in the bottom of the widow frame, allowing water to get in on top of the side wall....
