Oh, so it only leaks when the slid is in?
We had a leak on our slide but it didn't matter if it was in our out.
I found the angled metal that is just below the slide topper was allowing water to come in through the rivets(we don't pull the topper out like an awning).
The floor in the first cabinet next to the sofa and the carpet under the sofa in that area were getting wet.

Mine only leaks when it's out. I was also looking at those rivets Did you fill them with silicone or drill them out and then put new rivets in with sealant?

I put eternabond tape on the top of the angled metal to stop water from getting in behind the steel plate. You can't even tell it's there unless you really look hard.

I ended up running eternabond tape over all of the outer flanges of the slide. We had all of the inner flanges off (flat steel top and angle aluminum at the sides) and I sealed them with Geocel Pro Flex sealant. I also ran an extra bead of sealant on the inside edge of the top rail so that if water finds it's way on top of the slide room it won't soak through onto the headliner. I have confirmed this was successful.

Since we had the entire slide room out and replace all seals and rollers (along with subfloor and flooring) I find the slide lines up way better and seals contact fully when in and when out. I just have to let a little pressure off when it's out so the bottom isn't pressed harder than the top.

My remodel/renovation project still isn't done but it's close. We replace paneling in the bedroom along with all the carpet. I'm almost done redyeing the leather couch, captain chairs and dash (light grey instead of the off white factory). Pictures will be posted sometime when I'm all done!

Sounds like you have covered

Please do post pics, always looking for new ideas.

We just replaced both couches, they are so much more comfortable.
