We have another slide leak that we discovered after driving in heay rain which appears to be coming up through the wheel well on the right side. Still waiting on this one. Good luck with yours.
As an update to my post above, while driving home on our trip I mentioned above, we went through a very heavy downpour in Louisiana and had the same issue with the carpet in our slide being soaked when we got home.
We also have a LOT of fit and finish issues with our trailer. The wall between the living area and the bunkroom is severely bowed out, the side panel of the cabinet by the fridge has popped out and bowed, our black tank doesn't completely close so every time we get to a campground and take the cap off we get the stink-eye from neighbors as we dump a couple gallons of black water that has accumulated in pipe since our last dump, LED party lights on the front flicker, and a bunch of minor issues. I'm pretty disappointed in the QC at Forest River. This is my first FR 5th, but I've had 8 other RVs from apparently much better quality manufacturers (NuWa, Jayco, Keystone, etc), as I've never had this many problems with an RV over years of use, much less in only a few weeks of occasional use.
