Water problem inside???

We opened up our 5r yesterday and I found a possible problem, was wondering if anyone else has seen this.

We opened our slides and there was a small amount of water on the floor. It was from our slide that has the dining area/recliners. Not a flood by any means, but I couldn't find where it came from. The rug was dry as a bone. There were no signs of water coming in from any windows or from above. It just looked like someone spilled half a glass of water on the floor....

Anybody have an idea?????

You may try and keep your trailer level even in storage if it wasn't i found on mine that if it's level it doesn't get any water in side i found this out after one side of my trailer settled into the dirt a little, i also think what is going on is that the slides only have rubber wipes on three sides and there is non on the bottom, i went out when it was raining one day and on my bedroom slide water was coming down the side of the slide and running down the bottom of the rails toward the inside if the trailer is off level most of the water dripped off but a little got inside, if it's level it just drips off to the ground, So I'm thinking on putting a wipe along the bottom to help with this problem just in case it's off level for some reason during rainy times.

Older units like mine do have a bottom wiper seal. Also it may depend on the style of slide mechanism. Since CR has gone back to under floor mechanisms (rather than the Schwintek or BAL types) on at least some models, I would expect they still have the bottom seal.
