Jamie, it's amazing how much difference a little caulking can make, huh. Glad you solved it!

The Forum comes through again. Yes, we had a few days of heavy rain in SoCal and our Axis was parked tilted to the passenger side. Yes, a small stream of water was running across the floor from the front of the slide. Checked the caulking on the slide and was not there in the same corner as the picture posted later. Always an adventure.

Slide leak

I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you. My slides on my 2017 Thor Miramar 35.2 have been leaking since I bought it. Iíve had two sections of floor rot and had to replace them. These drip cups are the culprit for sure. Mine are made of rubber and have torn over time opening up the water to be introduced at the point of the floor where the linoleum ends. This resulted in damage to the subfloor. These posts have helped me to determine the real problem and it is definitely the drip cups. I plan to replace all 4 of them proactively. Thank you and good luck on avoiding the issues Iíve had.

Glad you were able to fix it! What do you mean by replacing all 4 "drip cups"?

Drip cups

Each slide has a drip cup located on the bottom of each slide for water coming off of the bottom of the rail. 3 of mine had cracks and the water the enters that drip cup ends up in the coach. There is a drip cup at each end of the slide and I have two slides.

How about taking a pic of a drip cup. Maybe that would help.

Had the same exact problem on my Jayco Precept. When running these slides in and out this flange gets flexed and eventually the caulk comes loose. The best caulk for fixing this is Geocell. Should be an annual place to check.

Those areas are typically called the picture frames.
