Angry leak on front slide out

Have had my 2015 fr3 in and out of the shop (6 months in) in the past year with them trying to find an intermittent leak. at times the slide is out during a light rain and then when I retract it and then go make a left turn water runs out at the front and rear of the slide , on the floor, it varies from a Lot to not so much .sometimes nearly a half a gallon. I do check the top of slide and dry it off after retracting it . most of the time it is only damp on the top. It appears to be puddling inside of the slide somewhere and then running out. JUST CANNOT FINE THE ENTRY POINT.
HAS ANYONE HAD A SIMILIAR PROBLEM???? HAVE BEEN WORDKING WITH THE FACTORY REP AND THE MAINT PEOPLE WITH MOTOR HOME SPECIALISTS.
THEY HAVE DONE A LOT OF SEARCHING BUT JUST CANNOT FIND THE SOURCE, ESPECIALLY SINCE IT SEEMS TO BE INTERMITTANT PROBLEM.

This happened to me. I noticed that the water was coming in from the rear part of the slide. Water was getting on top of the slide somehow and leaking into the rig when I retracted it. I looked everywhere for a leak. The only thing I found was that there is a break in the seam of the rain gutter on the roof of the rig.

Water was seeping through the small opening in the rain gutter and through the awning where it attached to the coach, and onto the slide from there. I got some exterior caulk and sealed the seam in the rain gutter. So far it seems to have worked. No more leaks after that.

ok I have found the same thing, but have not sealed the seam yet. Maint guys at motor home specialists spent the good part of 8 months and could not find that.
My confidence in them not too much at this point. I also found the outside seam of the slide seems to be letting a little water thru.

Thanks for the comeback! I have more confidence in my findings now.

No problem. Yeah, that was a bit of a head scratcher for me too. Good luck with getting it solved!
