Slide Dining Room Puddle on Floor

I have a 2015 Silverback 33IK that has developed a leak while closed. It's a cathedral ceiling also which makes it more of a challenge trying to find where the leak is coming from.
When we open the slide especially after travelling, there's a puddle in the middle of the floor and NOT at either end.
Even when we've had the slide opened for a few days and travelling when it's sunny, when we open the slide, there's a puddle in the middle of the floor. I've caulked all the outside top of the slide. That seemed to have helped after a rain, but we just got back from 4 days of sunny days of camping and when we opened the slide, there was a small puddle of water again. Any ideas?
The rubber seals seem to be all intact and working properly. I have attached a photo of previous puddles.

We had the same issue but only after traveling. Turns out the kitchen faucet would swing around and the handle would open. Water that was in the line would empty on the floor. We now bungee the faucet handle closed.
