2008 Berkshire 390QS WATER LEAK

Having water leak on a heavy rain on the sofa slide. Water leaks in at the roof at the trim moldings and will drip from light over table.
This water destroys all the fake molding and they peel. Been back at the dealer (boat and rv ) several times. Forest river sent all new
modified seals and moldings. Was hoping it was fixed.. Went camping
today and rain poured in from top of slide area. Now most of the moldingS are destroyed again!!!!!!!!!! Anybody having this problem?? I need to find this one before the wife trades its. Had many other issues but seem to got those fixed. The water leak is very sore issue. I hate having to pull that slide in when its rain. Help me if you can?:

We had a problem with water coming in at the slide in our bedroom. After taking it to Chesaco RV in Joppa MD the problem was fixed. There are weep holes at the bottom of the slide. In our case they were mostly blocked by sealant. They cleaned them out and drilled the holes slightly larger. It's been dry ever since and believe me we've been through some terrible storms this past summer. Our problem was at the bottom though. There would have to be some type of opening at the top for the water to get in the slide ceiling. Please post any findings when they get it fixed.

I had the exact same problem with the leak showing up on the bottom of the couch and carpet. Forest River picked my unit up and took it back to the factory for repairs. So far everything seems to be fine.
