Angry 2011 V-Cross slide leaks

Any one else having problems with the slide leaking when is closed? Every time our slide is closed when it rains, then is pushed out we end up having a puddle underneath the slide.

Have you got up on a ladder and looked at the seal yet?

No such problem for me. You want to check the seals carefully, especially the one on the outside flanges.

I got on a ladder today for a quick look. The seal on the top looked tight. Going to check a little better tomorrow.

Be sure that it is sealed to the flange and not torn on a seam.
Close the slide and see if the seal is bunched up or out of place.
Pour water on one end, the middle and then the other end while checking to see which one leaked.
