Slide leaking

We have a 2015 3050. Our last trip we drove in pouring rain for hours and had major water leakage at front of slide into rv. Noticed that slide is pulling away from body of rv at top. Any ideas?

This is still under warranty and we are returning it to be looked at but want your thoughts on this.

I'm confused by what you're asking. Schwintek is a model line built by Lippert.

True, but their track systems are different, Schwintek has the track rails on the sides and the Lippert above Floor or wall slide use the under side track system. Both have different ways to manually open/close, adjust or synchronize. This is on the Forester/Sunseeker, not sure about other FR products. If it's the Schwintek, he may just need to sync the motors. If it's the Lippert, the in stop may need adjusting. He is taking it to the dealer anyway.

Get it to dealer ASAP!! if you are talking about the slide tower bracket pulling away from the body, as in the mounting screws have pulled out of the wall, have been there done that, needs to be fixed, others have had this also.

We had that happen to our 2013 Columbus bedroom slide (Schwintek) Dealer put longer screws in. On its second trip back to factory, they installed a complete new bedroom box and slide mechanism (under the bed) by Lippert. Said they were having too many problems with the Schwinteks.

Yes it was!! First attempt to fix was longer screws installed by dealer, second fix was installed new slide tower ( FR picked up the tab on that even though I was out of warranty. Thank-you!!!!) keeping fingers crossed it holds up. Like I said if this is what the OP has get it to dealer ASAP!!!
