Keeping fingers crossed.
I had that done on my former tt. It does work but slide out units are difficult on the pressurization. They had to really crank up the blower to overcome the air leaking around the slide seals.

We had a similar situation and the leaks were from the freshwater and drain lines under the bed. I tightened all the connections and wrapped them with self-sealing silicone tape. Problem solved.

Good news, got the RV back from the dealer last week and we finally had a nice soaking rain and no leaks. They put caulking around every window and joint they could find on the slide. They said the pressurizing machine didn't find anything (probably didn't have the unit completely sealed). But either way I am happy. They will address the rotten plywood in the off season.

I'm going to invest in a tube of caulking every year and apply generously around every window and joint.
