Unhappy Water on top of full wall slide

We experienced a heavy thunderstorm last night in our '17 Quantum WS31.

When I was repairing our grey water tank connection today, we had to move the full wall slide in and out multiple times to make sure I has everything set up right. The last time we brought the slide in, my wife noticed water droplets on the bottom of the top wood trim about 6 ft back from the forward end.

I was able to get up and look, and noticed a small area of moisture on the slide roof when brought into the RV. The seals looked great and in contact with the roof. All was dry except for about a foot.

I can't check on the outside, as the area is well back under the slide topper. and unaccessable

Is this an anomaly, or something need be gravely concerned about? Of course, we're about two months out of warranty.

The slide toppers aren't designed to keep the water out only to keep the debris off the top of the slider. The slide rubber wipes should squeegee the water off. It wouldn't be unusual to have a small amount of moisture remain. If you had water running down the sides of the slides I then would say the seal wipes may need to be lubricated. What you describe wouldn't concern me too much.

Ditto with Miramar...what you experienced is mostly normal. Worst case, you may have a slide sweep that's not putting enough pressure over a given areas. Lay a known level board or something along the top of the slide horizontally to the coach and make sure you don't have a "dip" along the slide top.

Thanks. I'll just watch it and make sure it's nothing more.
