Leak inside by slide out

Found water leaked from somewhere between slide out and bathroom wall.

Any ideas?
RV is sitting in driveway.
Never leaked there before. Canít see any water damage to roof.
Weíve had some snow and rain this winter.

The snow may have created a dam which allowed water to get in somewhere it normally doesn't (like a plumbing or ceiling vent).

True...water may have accumulated along the slide seal where it meets the coach body...it freezes, expanding the seam a little. As this thaws, it can allow water to pass through before it completely thaws.

Thanks Guys! I was hoping that was the culprit. Itís supposed to rain Friday so Iíll be doing a water check.
Might even set up a sprinkler facing that area and see what happens. Iím sure it was an ice dam problem .
