water coming in ...again

Guys I need your help on this one. We are getting our feet wet since we bought the trailer last years. We tought that we have found from where the water was coming in but ....no.

Tonight we had some rain nothing exceptional but once again the floor under the silde out and the furnace is getting wet, the water doesnt seems to come from the slide out seal though.

I could trace a puddle of water that seems to be fed by a water leaks that is coming from the joint between the wall and the floor !!!!

So can you tell me how the wall is put on the floor, like it is mounted on a seal, on some sort of caulking or ???

I am kind of tired of this never ending leak. I am confident that my dealership with whom I have a great relationship will look and hopefully find the leak but I will not keep this aquarium for very long if they cant find the problem.....

What we're looking at is the outside wall and floor in the slide? Is there a window above the leak? I've had a window leak due to a sloppy install. The water could be getting in around a window and draining out the bottom of the wall. A roof leak on the slide is also a possibility. I doubt the water is coming in under the wall directly from the outside. After things have dried out try spraying various areas with the hose. Be patient, it may take time for the water to percolate its way down.

Is there diamond plate on the lower front? I'd re-caulk the seam at the top of the diamond plate.

We are not looking under the slide out but a few feet in front of it. The water is not running down on the inside panel wall, neither from a window or any kind of opening that i could see.

I lean onthe floor as soon as the rain started and it took awhile to see the water coming in, but when it happenned the water was clearly coming from the seam at the floor and the wall

Is it possible that the water is coming in at a leak in the roof and running down between the inside wall and the siding then running out at the floor?. Happened to me a couple of times. Sometimes you don't even know it's happening until the inside wall starts to rot at the bottom.

Cant say its impossible but i doubt it is since its a laminated fiberglass wall ( whitehawk) so for the water to run within that sandwich ?.. but hey with water you never know....

Wish I could be more help. Remember water flows down hill. If the tt is still parked where/when the water entered. I would take a level, check closely the slopes of the tt. Then work your way back, to a potential leak. I would look up high. Someone recently noted they found an issue on the roof, they could only find it being up there on their hands and knees and looking over the edge. Standing on the roof or the ground they could not the see the gap. If I recall it gap was at the topside of the gutter.
