We have water coming in from the lower left side of our bedroom slide out, under the closet . we we're wondering if anyone else had this problem. The rubber seal's seem to be snug on the side's, but the carpeting is wet every time it rain's, The molding on that side is warped cracking. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How does the top flange to seal look? We were having issues like that with our main slide and it was found that the top flange was warped and not making a tight enough seal allowing the water to run down the side of the slide in to the trailer.

Ed, I had a similar problem with a previous unit. Got water in the main living area regardless of the slide being in or out. Traced it to the top rubber seal where it attaches to the camper. There were a couple of cracks in the caulk along the top allowing water to run behind it and ultimately down the side of the slide and into the living area. A tube of Dicor did wonders.

Yeah ED, I agree with Monty, carefully check existing caulking for any cracks, water has a way of finding the smallest opening...we had wet carpet in corner of lv room and solved the problem by resealing a small crack in the outside caulking bead near the wet spot...good luck and keep us informed...

I found my seal hanging loose on the top of the slide out on Labor Day weekend. The spring was rusted and broke. I had this seal replaced in 07 by my dealer which I paid for. I went to see my dealer he said he would check and let me know the next day. I called him a few days later. He hadn't checked yet. He said he would call Randy. I told him I would like to call Randy. I talked to Randy and he said to bring it to the factory. He put the new seal on and caulked around the seal. The other two seals had no caulking around them. It was worth the 250 mile ride. Randy and his crew does a top notch job. Thanks Randy you can't beat Crossroads for taking care of problems.

I once had a leak in the lower right corner (from inside) of the bed slide. I could see where the previous owner had gobbed a bunch of silicone around on the outer seals at the top corner. The seal looked a little messed up there also from the slide dragging on it. I figured this must be where it was coming in so I did a little work there also but still had the leak. I finally started looking things over real closely while it was raining hard one day. Turns out it was coming in around a screw on the bottom angle aluminum trim piece. It would go in around the screw head and then run down the angle trim right inside the trailer. Put a dab of silicone on the screw and problem solved.
