Don't let this happen to you. Check your caulking on your slide. Seneca HJ.

Absolutely spot on Cajun. I have a small crack starting and my rigs brand new. Spotted it after on a couple operations of the slide. But I haven't been in any rain. I was thinking it develops when the slide snugs in? Not sure

Had a similar situation in our last fifth wheel. Rotted the slide floor.

Yes, all Seneca owners need to recaulk the picture frame surrounding each slide! I was a similar victim. The most professional way is to tape the gaps off on both sides with painters table for a crisp, narrow caulk line.

Me neither but I assure you the water leak is through the gap between the picture frame molding and the slide wall. Check your gaps!

Problem was the slide for the bed was high enough that I couldn't see it. Don't know how long it's been open. Replace the wood and giving Flex Seal a try with new caulking.

I think the slide snugging up doesn't help. Back and forth on the trim and a piss ant strip of caulk and then you have a leak. Check also the tracks on the slide. The top wasn't caulked and the bottom was missing screws!

That's not the entry point for the water, it is the gap between the picture frame molding and the slide wall. Caulk those properly and you'll be fine. Do this for all three slides.
