Slides leak from underneath

Have the new 23IKSS out on its first long trip - Yellowstone bound - and have driven through rain for a couple of days. The floor is wet in the kitchen and also the carpet on the dinette couch slide. Obvious it is coming from road spray off the tires. Has anyone experienced this? I figure it will get into the dealer when I get home in. A couple of weeks. All else is going great. Tows like a dream behind my F150.

They may have forgot to put the seals in and around the slides on the bottom. Later RJD

Yellowstone is on our list this summer as well. Sorry to hear about the leak. We took our 2016 233s out a couple of times far this past month and it rained so hard. I did have water on the front bunk ledge that ran down the floor to the front of the slide. I attributed it to the top outside seal on the front bunk.

Is it on one particular side of the slide out or near a bunk?

Water

Check the tire well,a few years ago,I had a tire blow out and didn't notice that it had damaged the tire well until I went through a heavy rain,there was water all over the floor under the couch,the tire blow out did lots of damage to the well.

I have the exact problem. It looks like the slide is not closing completely on the front lower section of the curb side slide. I have a work request in for the service group to look at it at the FROG rally in August.

Bet the bottom sweep seal is not there or not up against the bottom of the slide. It's something we see a lot. You should have a seal similar to the ones on the sides that lean against the slide and act like a squeegee. And also a seal when fully closed. If the slide is over the wheels it is critical that this is tight. There is a lot of pressured spray in that area.
