Slide out and rain

Had a pretty hard rain last night and started seeing some drips in bedroom by slide. Talked to service representative at dealership and he said sometimes hard rain and wind pushes water through seals. I agree but wife worried roof leaking. Didn't see leaks anywhere else. What has been your experience?

Does it have a slidetopper? If not, I'd get the upper seal checked and get a slidetopper installed.

We have a slide topper in our Class C. When we expect heavy rains, I slightly tilt the RV using my levelers towards the direction where rain water will slide AWAY from the inside of the RV (both of my slides are on the same side). IF you have slides on BOTH sides, that will not work.
