I have the same problem and after experimenting I found the water was coming in at the bottom of the slide but on the outside where my unit has a seam. I put some tape over the seam and viola the leak stopped. I thought it was coming from the top but it wasn't. You might want to try that. Good Luck.

Wink Water in Roof

I have a 2004 Georgetown and did have a roof leak - the side overhead cupboard by the entry door had to be replaced. The leak could have been from anywhere as the fiberglas roof has a seam down each edge fastened with stainless steel scews then caulked.
I bought eternabond tape (I got it from RVupgrades online)and taped over both side seams and the front and back cap seams - voila! no leaks since.

If it is your bedroom slide then maybe it needs to be adjusted to tighten the seal?
