W slide leak

I have a small leak on my 2401W. The water comes across the floor from under the wardrobe. The leak only happens when the slide is closed. Suspect area is the upper corner or side seem where the slide transitions between the different heights. This is a picture of how mine seals. Not sure why they did not use the same material used for the other side seals. Could some other W type owners let me know if they are having the same problem. And show me some pics of what that area looks like on their W.

And it the seals are tacked in with nails(looks like dry wall nails). You would think these would be screwed in.

I had that happen only once but since it hasn't occurred since, not an issue

Can you post a pic of what the seals look like on yours. It only happens if it is parked with the front pointed down a grade and it rains. The water runs down the side and thru that seal.
