Leaky slide, ugh!

I can't figure out why my rear slide is leaking while extended. Seals are flared out, everything seems to be caulked properly. It leaks at the bottom of the front of the slide. We leave tomorrow and we are suppose to get some rain.

Our slide also can leak a bit. The water shows up at the bottom but it's coming it at the top corner and runs down out of sight until it dampens the carpet near the bottom corner.
We've found it to be much less if we just park -slightly- out of level with the slide down hill just enough to put the bubble touching the line.
It's worth a try!

Yes, that's exactly what's going on. It's so frustrating.
