Vibe 6502 Slideout

We've taken delivery of our new 2014 Vibe 6502. The slideout leaks when extended, allowing water to intrude. The water enters the cabin below the right slideout cupboard. The intrusion is most notable when the slideout is extended. However there is minor
water intrusion when the slideout is retracted. Any suggestions regarding a cause and/or solution would be appreciated.

It's new, don't stress about it and take it back to get fixed.

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately a 400 mile (640K) return trip to the nearest Forest River authorized warranty dealer is not in the cards. I am looking for trouble-shooting solutions to the slideout leak. Where do I look for the most likely intrusion. What should be caulked. Would caulking solve the problem.

I would have my doubts about caulk fixing the issue unless it was a very small leak. Even then maybe not.

We actually took our 6504 in today and the dealer told us that the whole slider must be replaced. We didn't have any leaks just the flashing was detached from the side of the RV because the hole for it was cut wrong at the factory.
