Damp Floor in Slide Out

Hello,
I have damp carpet in the front corner of my slideout. I checked the rear corner and it appears dry. The windows don't appear to be leaking and the walls feel dry as well. Any thoughts on where this is coming from?

Before we brought the trailer home, we noticed the bottom slide seal was completely busted and not functioning correctly. The dealer fixed it (over the course of several days) and then we took it home. Could this be related?

We're just about to store it for the winter and I have concerns (obviously) about how it will hold up stored outside over the course of a Minnesota winter. Will a closed slide out have the same issues?

Thanks in advance!

Depending on where the leak is located, it may not leak when the slide is closed. Then, if the leak is associated with the side slide seals, it may leak worse than when it's open.

You might want to check the molding on the lower part of the slide sides. It is known to wick water into the slide corners and may be where your leak is located.

Is the "molding on the lower part of the slide sides" found outside? What exactly am I looking for?

I'll try to post a picture of what the inside corner looks like.
