Point taken, and it's worth repeating. Years ago my Dad had that issue on the front slide and caught it early. So what we did was dry it right out and then I used urethane and drew a bead along the lower channel on all the slides. This turned out to be really smart and I inspect them often and they have held up like you would not believe. Urethane is the adhesive they use to install windshields and it lasts decades (provided there is no frictional wear on it).
I re-sealed the entire bedroom slide the other day when I saw the water ingress again. I'm actually quite optimistic. When I initially pulled the carpet the thin plywood floor was very dark but as it's dried it's turned grey. I think, as with the front slide, we got it in time.
Nevertheless, I will go over the entire unit in short order more aggressively. I should have re-sealed the top of the slides but didn't because the canvas topper would have to be removed. That was a mistake! So I did the rear and have to do the front yet.
More pics to come as I start in on the actual fiber-glassing etc.
