slide water leak

I bought a new Grey Wolf 26dbh and picked it up the last week of April. A week later it was back in the shop to have a leak fixed. Now it is leaking in the same spot 4 weeks later. Here is what is up...

Water is coming in along the top slide rails then down the side wall to the floor on both sides. When I took it in the first time they used caulking / sealant to hide visible light that could be seen at the top of the slide on both sides when closed.

Anyone have any advice I can give the shop so I don't have ongoing leaks requiring me to continue to take it back?

If the slide is properly adjusted, you shouldn't be able to see any light when it's closed...it sounds like the outer flange isn't touching (or compressing) the outer slide seal and the slide stop needs to be adjusted.
