leaky slide out

I've posted on this problem several times and am still having water come in on the floor beside the bed in the slide out. I've sealed the seams where the molding attaches with Lexel this time. I used Alex Flex last time and it didn't seem to keep the water out. Anybody else having this issue?

I used to have a problem with water leaking across the floor under the slide, but a caulking around the trim outside solved it. Good luck on finding your leak.

Thanks! What kind of caulk did you use?

Since it was leaking on a trip and all I had at hand was GE Advanced Silicone. Seems to be ok after a few years.

I had a similar problem and it was what I thought was decorative trim. Well apparently there is a seam in there sometimes. As soon as I resealed it I was able to get the leak stopped

We had the same problem and went back to our RV shop (still under warranty at the time) and they found the slide was missing "drip cups" on either side of the slide. Once they put them in place it sealed the leak.
