Leaking slide 2016 Jayco 28BHBE

Heavy rain storm and found water leaking out of slide into unit. This has been a great unit until this schlock . Appears slide is high in back and lower in front leaving a gap by seal. Any suggestion past my two year warranty
Thanks
Chuck

My slide slightly slopes downhill to the furthest outside point of the slide roof.. Also, on the inside of my slide where the rubber seals are, My slide roof has a sort of small wedge that slopes downward from the back of the slide, thru both seals to slightly past the outside seal. Have not had any water issues and we have been out in some very heavy rains.

What about setting up with the slide-side slightly lower? Of course it's not a fix, but it may help in keeping water out until you can address the problem.

Im sure you've been in rain before but this time you said " heavy rain storm " and the first time in over 2 years it's happened so maybe your trailer wasn't leveled properly. I wouldn't even mention Jayco until I did more testing and I take it you don't have an awning.

Ok to be clear my camper and slide has sat open in the same camp site for two years and not moved.
It is at my duck camp. I have a tarp blocking the gap for now . I’m in South Texas and calling a mobile RV place For a solution . I can not close the slide it rips the window striping on my back window if I do.

What catches the window stripping? When I close my slide, the only thing that rubs against the window frame is the rubber seal.

Also, I do lubricate those 2 sets of seals 3 times during my camping season, It really isn't hard. Outside seal is easy, just spray the protector/lubricant on the seal. For the inside of the outside strip, I spray the lubricant/protector on my fingers and go behind the seal. Do the same thing for the front and back of the inside seal.
