...... when slides are extended or retracted?

Best to find the moisture entry location to determine the best fix. I would start with taking a garden hose and run some water around the outer seals with slides retracted and extended. Also run some water on the slide roof near the outer edge.

Window frames and any other access panels on the slide outer walls should be checked as well.

Without any details, it is impossible to give an educated opinion. Could be a window, could be a skylight, could be the slide, could be the roof membrane leaking, could be the TV antenna, could be the AC gasket, could be a drain pipe from the kitchen sink.

Quick fix with no details given? Park it under a roof.

leak

The slides are out. The gaskets look ok. They leak in the rain.

Couple years ago my bedroom slide was leaking slightly during a rain storm on my then brand new RSTS. Next morning I scouted out and found an egg horn somehow got stuck under the side rubber flap which allowed enough space for the wind to blow in rain water. My prior camping spot was under a large oak tree so I know where I picked it up. But still puzzled how the heck it got lodged on the side. The pressure from the flap was the only thing holding it in..

Some (many?) posters believe others can read their minds and have no grammatical skills to accurately describe a situation so that others can understand and make a sound recommendation. Then they get td off when their issue is not instantly resolved.

Useless thread. Maybe there’s something in the archives or on another forum.
