Angry Water leak

Hello all, I have an 06 Sandpiper 301BHD. I had a water leak into the street/drivers side last year while driving in the rain that the dealer "fixed" . We took a trip a couple weeks ago and again it leaked while driving home. We store the camper outdoors all winter in an open field with no problems. Now the dealer is saying that I am out of warranty I think the problem could be with the slide since it only leaks when driving (poss. wind press. pushing water in). Does anyone have any experiences like this. Yes I will push the issue with Forest River

I was just out at the camper looking at the superslide and noticed that the gap on the leading edge is larger than the bunk slide leading edge. I also noticed the gasket doesn't compress, as well as a small spot at the bottom of the same leading edge gasket that had pulled away from the shell. When I peeled off the gasket to expose the base that it attaches to it was missing sealant/adheasive in a couple of spots as well as the staples that help hold the base. I sealed and stapled now I will let it set and water test this weekend. I have a good feeling about the fix because I think the water is being pushed in which would have te be the leading edge.

Well I think I got it I was spraying the outside with the slide closed trying to simulate a towing condition and she's still dry . I still have to adj. the stop on the slide to come in tighter and then I will be confident with the fix. Hope to see yall at the CGs

My trailer is like your 302BHD and I have noticed that when towing in the rain the floor just behind the slide opening in the main parts of the trailer was wet. I found that I could stick my hand through the seals in the back underside of the slide when it was closed. I have not figured out a fix yet, but I am working on it.
