My main slide floor has fallen victim of water intrusion as well. Its finally starting to raise its ugly head. It had shown slight signs when I bought it. Dealer corrected! Well apparently not and heres the result.

I will be taking a close look at mine tonight for this as we pack her up to head out for the weekend.

Water was seeping down between the trim and the wall and the OSB floor was soaking it up.

Picked it up from the dealer on Monday. They replaced the OSB floor of the slide room with marine grade plywood and used a sheet of stainless steel to weatherproof the bottom side instead of the black wrap. They also had to make some adjustments to the motor columns to get the rollers and gears to engage properly. The slide is working like a champ now, much better than it ever did originally.
I'll go and take a look. I hope Dutchman would cover it for me as well. I have an extended warranty too so that might help. I called the dealer today to make an appointment. How long was yours in the shop?

Mine has been sitting at CW since first week in April, still waiting for parts from Dutchmen for the same thing.

You can see by this straight edge how its swollen. Couldn't really tell by looing until it started delaminating as shown. And that happened when I retracted the slide. When I move to another campsite and extended it back out this is what I saw when hooking up utilities.
I'm one who stays on top of stuff. Apparently this has been a hidden leak since the day it left the factory. Sat in the rain at the dealer for months before I came along now here we are.

I went out and looked at mine and put a level up to it to look for drooping. It seems totally fine. I checked up on the roof and it looked good up there too. I lubed the rollers again and after a few tries I was able to get it all the way in. It just seems like the motors are just a tad weak. They have kinda sucked since day 1.
