Nash 23D slide room leak...

We have a Northwood made Nash 23D (8 years old).

In severe rain storms and we have had some over the last few weeks, at the front bottom of the slide out room, we have seen a leak.

In fact, with the slide not quite all the way out, we can see a small gap down where the slide out wheel is (under the gear) in the rubber and it my well be that this is where the rain is getting in. We don't know if pushing the room all the way out seals this, but my guess is that it doesn't; so we get a leak.

The rubber lip on the inside of the coach seems to not be 100% still, but it folds over on the inside as the slide goes out and flops out to be straight again as the slide comes in. I don't know if its supposed to do that?

Can anyone tell me what or if all this is normal/usual?

The gap when partially deployed is normal. You should have an inner seal and an outer sweep. Inspect both to see if they are still intact. You will need to inspect the seal with the slide partially open. The outer sweep should fold in when retracting and out when extending. Make sure it is fully out when fully extended. Be sure to inspect the top of the slide as well, water can run a long distance.
