Got it !!! I found the leaks, I couldnt wait for the dealership....Im a stubborn french canadian hey !!! at the end 3 leaks
1- Slide out vertical moulding. Leaks was at the very bottom but also in 2 locations...at the bottom corner and 2 wood screw from the botton up...these 2 where hard to figure. The water was going in around the screw head and was leaking through the wall ( inside the wall through the so called vaccum bonded wall ) ) to finish on the floor under the slide out.

2-One leaks was coming from the heater vent...not sure what can be done there, maybe a bug screen might help ?

3- The third leak will be hard to stop, its just a few drop of water coming down by the vertical seal again but normally the water should be directed into the channel at the bottom of the seal on the slide out...the problem is that the drops dont know that and they are taking another route leading thm to the floor...anyway I am really proud of myself, thanks God I dont mind to work for free for Jayco.....

I have had a similar problem and didn't discover it until the end of last season when temps were already below freezing. So this is on my to-do list first thing once its warm enough to start caulking.

We have a small slide on our unit which only houses the jack-knife sofa. When looking behind the sofa I noticed that the plywood floor has water stains on it. During our last trip of the year we got a huge downpour and I finally saw water ponding on the floor behind the sofa. It was not coming from the windows or down the walls, etc.

After a detailed inspection of the exterior of the slide I realized that water was actually being wicked in around the bottom of the slide at the corners. Caulking in those locations was visibly lacking. So essentially water would run down the slide during a downpour and then be drawn into the slide at the floor-wall corners by capillary action.

I would strongly advise everyone to have a real good look behind the furniture in their slide outs to see if there is any signs of previous water intrusion and then very thoroughly inspect the bottom of the slides, particularly the corners where everything joins together. Mine if going to get slathered in caulking on the first warm day of the year.

I had the same problem and it turned out to be the top seal on the storage hatch closest to the leak. Incorrectly installed by the factory.

This might be a long shot but I had water coming in my furnace vent which is located directly under the fridge. I believe it was due to the drip tray behind the fridge overflowing. I have since rerouted the line that brings water into the drip tray so that it goes out the vent and drips water on the ground outside of the trailer. I haven't had any issues with it since. If you are only finding water at the furnace vent when there is a downpour then this probably isn't what is causing your leak but thought it was worth mentioning just in case.
