Norty, if you put your finger on the wall of the slide, then slowly run it to the bottom, your finger will hit that joint that extends all the way across the bottom
of the slide. Its a known water leak problem. When water gets in there, it goes to the bottom area, makes a 90 degree turn so to speak, and destroys the bottom of the slide and enters the coach and does serious damage. I might add this applies to Greyhawk owners too.

Crossing Over is right.

What Crossing Over said is correct. This is a well documented problem with the Seneca slides with even a YouTube video on how to fix. My question is do you need to remove all old silicon first?

I found 'a' youtube of it... definitely shows the 'picture frame' and where the gaps are that can let water in. We'll be adding this one to our inspection list!

Been watching this like a hawk on my 2017 FS. Looks like Jayco is paying better attention to this issue as all the frames appear to be caulked very well. Will continue to monitor closely though as these slide walls do flex quite a bit when they move.

When installing the T-moldings, there is supposed to be butyl wrapped on the seam first. Sealer is the secondary defense. If just sealer, everybody would have this issue.

No butyl seal. Just on the bottom. There was no sealant behind the corner pieces that cover the mitered part of the frame. That's another leak spot I found. Another case of shoddy workmanship.

First one is the seam opened up at the bottom of the slide. The second is the $1100 custom mattress I had made that's ruined.

Our 2016 TS has a leak at the top of the large living room slide which damaged the interior molding at the top of the slide, could this be the same issue?
