Leak from washing

So I washed my forester for the first time yesterday with light pressure. I noticed water came in from slide way back in the rear anyone had this problem. Anyone had this happened?

I get the same result if I spray water under the slide awning even with the slide closed. I try not to do that.

Beware. On my 2801QS, in the bottom corner of the rear slide, there is a spot where all of the gaskets come together, where they try to overlap them. One can stick a finger by the slide rail to the outside, when the slide is extended. Myself watch these spots for rodent entry. I cannot leave the slides out when I am not using them. Don't know if it is possible to totally enclose around the slide rail (Schwintek slide).

I have the awing cover so water does not enter when it is raining. I don't see how you could get a perfect seal around the slide out corners, hence water enter when sprayed from underneath the awning. There may be other types of seals that would prevent leakage, but with what is on these slide outs I think it is kind of normal. That is one reason I would not have a unit without the awnings over the slide outs. Try having someone inside while you spray water outside and you can see where it comes in.
