Slide Out water leak

Just wondered if anyone out there had experienced any water leak issues with the slide out on a 27' xlr hyper-lite?

Late last fall I trailered to a park, approx 2 hour trip, in the rain and when I arrived I noticed some water on the floor in the area of the slide. While camping that weekend, with the slide out, I noticed some more water. Of course it was raining, hard at times and quite windy.

Any thoughts?

This may or may not be the answer to your problem but we had a Crossroads Cruiser that had a water leak by the bedroom slide whenever it rained, and it was because the rubber seal attached to the main part of the trailer did not fold out properly when extending the slide and I would have to go on the roof and flip it out with my hand. Also, whenever I levelled the trailer from side to side I would make sure it was not in a position where water could flow from the roof of the slide towards the trailer. As far as when travelling I am only guessing maybe a gasket or seal is missing, not sure. Hope this helps.

Also while travelling, the slide has to be tight against the camper wall, and well-aligned. Ours came from the factory slightly out of alignment, and I had to adjust it a bit to make sure it was tight front and back.
You can imagine the force of the water driving in the rain at 60 mph. It is surprising they don't all leak!
