    Sure gets wet

    Well a new issue. The last 2 heavy rains I have a nice flow of water coming in at the lower left of my kitchen slide. Upon a brief inspection outside I don't see a seal issue. Time to climb the ladder. Funny how it's just now an issue. The slide hasn't moved since we setup camp 7 months ago.

    No, this is in the opposite corner.

    When you get a chance, pull it it in a few inches and check for debris under the seal

    I certainly hope it's that simple.

    Pulled the slide in and then back out. Seals look fine. It rained last night and I have water on the kitchen floor on the far left side. Not sure where else to check.

    Maybe time to get out the hose and see if you can recreate the leak.

    Found the issue. At the bottom of the kitchen slide is a strip and that the strip had pulled away from the slide by about 1/16". Laid a bead of silicone and all is now good.
