Leak In Rear slide

Ok well I got up this morning and found a large puddle of water in my toy box in the back. It has been raining so looks like I have a leak in the slide. This seems to have occurred after prime time did some work to repair so frame damage. They have been great, I contacted them this morning Shane got right back to me and they are already starting t assist me, no issues there at all.
In the mean time, I am trying to find the source. Only logical thing I can come up with is the seals. I just got on the roof and doused every one of those seals with spray from a hose, no signs of water inside at all....I did notice the gutter on that side was chuck full and not draining properly. So I cleaned it out. Could that have been the cause?
I am a little concerned. The family and I are traveling the next 2 months while our new house is getting finished so we basically have the camper, our boat, and our cottage p in the 1000 islands, and we usually stay in the camper cause we are traveling...

Seems the issue started after the repairs so I am wondering if something is just not lined up properly...all I can so now is watch it and wait to get close to my dealer again and have them peek, but I hate not doing anything so just looking for ideas. There is a small budge in the side of the slide out on the outside, not sure what it is from but it's hard, water damage behind the laminate? Don't know.

The seals all look good on the outside, both the outer and inner ...I did see some beads of water behind the inner seal, but I'm guessing that is normal and it is not supposed to remain bone dry in there...seals seem to overlap correctly, with the top seal overlapping the side seals.

If you had a driving wind, it not uncommon to get water blown in under the slide. Myself and Gary (Grhodes50) have had this happen on our Schwintek bedroom wardrobe slide.

Don't think there was any driving wind..I doused the seals with water from the house. Sprayed them all real good, no signs insider rained again last night and no water inside. ...very strange
