Slide leak

I have a 2016 Sierra 355re with 5 slides. The problem I am having is the bathroom slide leaks water in the rear corner when it rains. When we bring the slide in or out we hold the switch in position for 5 seconds. I have brought the slide in and checked the top of it and it looked ok. When the slide is out all the wipers are out and they look good. I had an r v tech plus 3 other people look at it but they couldn`t find the leak. I need HELP.

the seals may not be the problem did you check all the chalking and trim around the slide and the roof area above including all screws holding trim on.

Thanks for the reply Sea Dog. I think I found the problem with the slide in question, it has the Schwintek slide system. What I think is happening is the water is running down the rails to the inside of the trailer because the trailer is a little bit high on that side.
