Kitchen side slide leak

I noticed water running out from under the refrigerator on our 32RL. I took out the drawer below the refrigerator and I think the water is coming down the front side of the kitchen slide, hitting the bottom aluminum track that the slide gear grabs to move the slide and then enters the trailer.

Once inside, the water seems to follow the white hoses that feed the outside sink and the outside sink drain pipe. I mopped all up I could, but I stuck my finger in the hole where the outside sink drain goes through the floor and the insulation is sopping wet. I can also see that the floor plywood is wet.

It looks like the factory ran a little bead of clear silicone on the top of the slide track to form a dam that I guess is supposed to keep this from happening.

Anyone experienced anything similar? Should I cut the underbelly to dry out the insulation?

Thank you for any wisdom you can offer!

Check the outside kitchen sink connections. Mine would come loose all the time. The sink slid out on a drawer and the twisting of the hoses, moving in and out would loosen them up. You need to check for tightness every time you push it in.

the door alignment and gasket around the outside kitchen on ours is less then good. The 2 side latches catch the lock catch does not. have this noted with dealer and will see what they do. in the dead center of the door at the bottom you can see inside to the kitchen.

I will monitor this for the season maybe add a better seal to keep water out but do not want to take to dealer over the season they can not guarantee us it will be returned before our scheduled trips.

Our slide was doing the same thing. I just increased the size of the "dam" on the rail. So far I have not seen it leaking.
