Sprinter front slide leaking.

Hi there,

Iím new to this but here goes. I have a 2014 Keystone Sprinter 333FWRLS.
Last fall I noticed the front slide under the right hand sofa seemed to be leaking. The carpet underneath the sofa on both sides by the slide wall was soaked. I couldnít find a leak at that time.
I took it out of storage today and right away noticed that the carpet underneath the sofa is wet again.
Has anyone had this problem with this camper? Iíd appreciate any assistance!
Thanks

Welcome to the forum: wlcm:

Sorry it has to be under these circumstances. If the slide is leaking when itís retracted, then odds are one or more seal is failing/failed.

Extend the slide and give all the seals a very through, close up inspection. Pay attention to the top corners, and what ever side faces the weather.

Also make sure that the rain seals are flipped in the out position. Had a leak on a raptor years ago and turn out the seal on the top was not flipping out when the slide extended. That was my leak. Welcome to the forum from northern MN.
