FR3 water leak under the main slide

Had my 2018 FR3 30DS in storage for approx one month. When I started driving away from the storage lot water came out from under the main slide and ran towards the refrigerator.
While camping with the slide extended had several rainy days, I saw no leaks while slide was out, before closing I went up on the roof and used a garden blower to get the water off the slide topper, saw no standing water on the slide roof, only on the sag in the awning slide topper.
When I closed the slide water ran across the floor underneath the main slide.

Are there any locations on the slide outer wall that should be caulked / sealed?
Have any other FR3 owners had a similar experience?
This is my first leak since purchasing in 2018.

Had a similar situation with my 2018 FR3 29DS. Finally discovered that the clamp securing the flexible drain line from the kitchen sink to the ABS drain line to the gray water tank had come loose. I had to pull out the oven/cook top to get to it. The water would always appear after retracting the main slide with the kitchen sink. Not sure of your layout, but it's worth looking into.

Check and seal where bottom of the exterior wall meets the lower trim piece on the slide. Mine had water leaking in there when it rained and would leak out on the inside when driving.
