Bedroom slide leak

We have a '16 Bounder 35K and at the base of the slide, on left side as looking at the headboard, the leak is apparent at the bottom of the cabinet (next to bed), no water evidence anywhere else, as carpet is dry. Where the floor and cabinet meet is where the evidence is. Anyone else have this issue? What remedy, if any, did you find that works-other than of course taking it back to REV. Thanks for any and all advice...

Water leaks are hard to find you need to be a detective, every time it rains start hunting. Does it leak when slide is open or closed or both? No remedy till you figure where itís coming from except park under a carport.

Yeah, happens every so often to me. I took out the bed stands years ago so it is all visible to me. There is a metal L "beam" there that is part of the slide. The water seems to ride right along there and land on the carpet. For me all I need to do is adjust the level of the rv a slight bit to the right. No more leak and also why it happens only intermittently.

Ours leaked as well. It turned out that the bottom angle bracket (outside the RV) needed some caulk to seal the rain from hitting the side of the slide and slipping down into the angle bracket. This stopped the water from travelling into the RV.

Thank you for your experiences with the water intrusion/leak. I have pushed the slide seal back a bit and see exactly what you are referring to. I will put a bead of caulk as well. Seems a learning process with each passing week.
