Leaking slide outs

Our 8329SS (Rockwood clone of your 832IKBS) hasn't leaked in the rain but we also haven't towed it while raining.

I would think its a problem with the seals between the side of the camper and the flange on the slide. Probably along the front edge but could be along the top or where the two meet as well.

With the slides closed, look at the front and rear bottom corners of each slide and see if you can see day light. We had this problem (was also a sure entrance for mice) and took it in for warranty work. The dealer built up the corners with blocks of wood and fitted rubber strips around the edges to seal them. The water that got inside because of this problem was quite significant and took some time to completely dry out.

Post how it goes. I'd be interested in knowing how your dealer fixes it.
