Where is the water coming from

We just started a cross country trip in our new Aria 3401......LOVE this coach....a pleasure to drive....and very comfortable to live in. We drove 300 miles today in steady and heavy rain...when we opened the bedroom slide....water on the floor....nothing obvious from above....can it be getting in around the bottom slide seals???

many of us with similar models have the same issues, I saw some in mine today after some moderate rain and road water... comes in by being thrown up by the wheels thru areas not sealed properly, and sometimes by the doors not providing the best type of seal for water flowing down the side of the coach and over/into the door edges.

Since you were driving in the heavy rain: start out by looking in front of the area where you first saw the water...
Try back-tracking back from the puddle: you may eventually see where it came in along the slide-out wall, or at the floor level...
Sorry to hear that you're having a problem ; but glad to hear that you're digging the ride!

good advice, but in over 3 1/2 years and 82,000 miles, I've NEVER been able to 'see' where it's coming in, not even a hint! It's annoying, but not a deal breaker, I just don't put anything on the surface of the floor of the storage bins that I don't want to 'get wet'...

That's a good way to look at it...

Been having this problem also, i guess most are. Thor sent me new weatherstrip, but it is the same size as the ones already there. It probably helped some as when installed at the factory it wasn't pushed all the way up into the corners. Daylight was clearly visible. This weekend I noticed that when I turned on the compartment lights at night light was shining through on some of the doors. One of the doors doesn't even cover the opening behind it. I reported it to Thor and called my dealer for an appointment. We will see what becomes of it.
