water on slideout problem

we just took our 26BHS out for a trial run yesterday. it rained on us a good amount overnight and the trailer was pretty soaked when we went to leave. when i brought the slideout in, a bunch of water ran off the sides onto my carpet.

what do y'all do to get the water off the slideout so you don't end up with wet carpet inside?

Please don't take this wrong, I am sorry it sounds sarcastic but for us it is a really simple equation.
We use a step stool and a squeegee it off before we run the slideout in.

Since I don't have a slide awning presently, I use a small power blower to get rid of whatever's up there before closing up shop. It helps to keep the inside clean and dry.

What i do is when breaking camp, is if it has rained we put stabilizers up and lower or raise the front of camper to allow water to run off. Then continue packing up. Slides are the last thing we bring in.

X2, but it is amazing how long it took me to figure out this is all we had to do!

Thanks for the tip. I have always had a slide topper on my previous rig. None on my new triple slide. This will make me look like a genius.
