    Just saw your post. Hadn't been on Forum lately, sorrow about that. You may have already completed your slide channeling, but I started my channel at the bottom outside corner of the slide and angled it up as I went to the side of the Coach. The ends of my vinyl channel are cut parallel to the vertical trim at the edges of the slide. And of course the channel is actually under the bulb on the side of the Coach. I don't like that, but it does catch the water running off the slide and channels it away from the side of the Coach.

    Floor in rear bedroom got wet from leak around the exterior flange of water heater. Had to re-caulk with Putty Tape. Took care of slide leak by installing a u-shaped channel on the outsides of slide w/slope to get water away from MH. Also, installed u-channels on the other two slides. Water at Drivers seat...I found and had conversations w/others with same problem. I was told that the rivets holding the roof edge to the side of the Coach had rusted away. Caulk deteriorated...letting water get in where roof edge was riveted to sidewall. There's a piece of trim(outside cover just snaps over trim piece and rivets go through) you remove to re-install the rivets. As I recall, I used 1/4 inch rivets. I also put the wide tape(can't remember product name) over the joint where Front Cap meets the roof and re-caulked roof edge before & after I re-installed Trim Edge. Check the Coach sides to be sure the sidewall fiberglass has not separated from the Coach Frame and underside for rodent damage.
