water intrusion at rear with slide IN.

After a storm I sometimes find water stains between the foot of the bed and the slide. It would seem the water is either coming in under the slide topper, down the slide and into the bedroom or is somehow getting is along the slide side gasket and collecting inside. This is all with the slide IN. Anyone else have this happen? Any ideas how?

Everybody at one time or another. Does it seem to happen more while driving or sitting in driveway? Rain splash underneath will come through the bottom.

Some things to check:
1 - Is the top (horizontal) rubber seal going over the side (vertical) seal at the top corner?
2 - Is the side (vertical) seal completelly "out" when the slide is extended?
3 - There is a small "dripping pan" at the foot of the wall, where the slide system is, is this pan cracked? Have someone put a screw on it? etc...
