Leak under slide out

We have a 2020 Four Winds 31y Class C. We have had two travel trailers before this one (Mallard and Outback).
This one has been a great ride. Usual screw tightening and learning curve. Very happy with the quality (they did pack a lot in a small box though- this is about 6 feet shorter than either TT, but has double the features).
Friend has Esteem in same basic box and has had a bunch of issues, so went with Four Winds, so far good choice.
Camper parked at storage, front higher than back by a foot or so, right side higher than left by a couple inches. Slide is three fourths length of camper. About two thirds down length of slide it steps up about four inches (small step on inside too to get to bedroom and bath). Just in front of that step, some water (enough to clean up with one or two paper towels after a hard rain) comes in between the flooring and bottom of the slide. Appears that their is a metal plate (that is below the furnance) that the water is running down the raised edge. Looks like it comes in from outside, catches the small rise in the metal plate, follows gravity, hits the rubber flange on the bottom of the slide in the kitchen, hits that, and then goes to floor and over to steps. Water never hits the floor until it hits the rubber flange (must run, somehow, in or on the bottom of the flooring of the slide, water never hits floor between slide and flooring of camper-dust/dog hair undisturbed). On the exterior, took off panel to furnace and found moisture/dampness/discolouration in lowest corner of wood. Also, some water pooled in corner of furnace. Because of how panel attaches to side of camper, water not entering there. Can't figure it out. Could that much water be entering in gap between exhaust pipe and exterior cap on exhaust?Click image for larger version

Just saw this. Mine doesn't have this black piece. Just gap between exhaust pipe and inside of camper. This might solve it. Is this standard? Am I just missing it?Click image for larger version
