Thor Freedom Elite- water under the couch, help!

When it rains we have water slowly dripping from underneath the front edge of the foldout couch which is in the drivers-side Slideout, there’s only about a 1” gap underneath there to look at and i can’t figure out where it’s coming from, all interior walls and ceiling in the slideout are dry. Anyone got any ideas or familiarity with this issue? I plan to recaulk everything i can find on that side of the camper asap, as soon as the weather dries up

Thanks!

Since it's only an issue when it's raining: this is either a roof issue, or a seal on the slide...
Once you can safely get on the roof: look closely for any cracks in the caulking.
Then: make sure that the seals on the slide aren't out of place.
Good luck!

Check the caulk line at the top side and diagonals of the exterior horizontal moldings. Mine leak there into the same spot on the floor.

You might not see the crack due to heat/weather/expansion.
You Might need to flood it and look for bubbles.
