Water leak from below

Drove through lots of rain one day last week. Once I parked and pulled the slide out there was water from front to back on the floor. Seems road spray somehow blowing in from under the coach on the slide side (full slide on driver side). Checked everything from above and nothing so it must have come in from underneath. Anyone ever encounter this? Have an appointment this week but we all know that means it will be in the shop most of the summer with them not knowing how to fix it.

I'm afraid that you'll have to crawl up underneath the slide, and look for any breaks or baps in the wipes...
They don't actually seem to be able to do a great job of making these spots waterproof...

I would look at the bottom of the slide at the junction of the facing. I had the same problem, took some serious dicor to this area and fixed it.

I am having the exact same thing on my 2018 Windsport. Have had it in to General RV twice and they can't duplicate the problem. Only time water comes in is when I drive in the rain.

Have they tried hitting the underside of your slide with the spray from a garden hose yet?
(You actually have to grab them by their noses; and forcefully point them in the directions that you want... )

You most probably have a leak on top and around the front of the slide seal. This is an easily replaced seal when the slide is out, so look for a crimp or tear in this seal. If the seal feels soft and looks good, you could move the slide in and install the slide lock in the front and secure it. Then spray water at the front edge of the slide and onto the roof and let it run down on top of the slide. You also need to spray water under the slide cover. If there is no water inside the remove the slide lock and repeat a looking for water leaks. It would not likely come from under the slide because there is little spray there when driving.
