Finding leak in Slideout - Help!

I have a 2015 Voltage 3970 and we had some really heavy rains last week. The carpet around the stove was wet, I pulled out the drawer and there was a lot of water. It looks like it was coming in from the back corner. Yesterday, it was sunny. I really checked outside and saw no obvious leak points. The seals look good and no cracks or gaps that I could see. I also think if it was coming in around the seals it would be coming in there and not in the slide out under the stove.

It was a lot of water. Where do I start looking for leaks? What have you done to find and fix slideout leaks?

We went thru a hurricane a few years back in SC. Our galley slide leaked badly. I found the seal on the top of the slide where the screws are to be the culprit. I put Eternabond over it and had no issue since.

The same thing is happening on out 2015 3800... the closet slide tape covering the strip of screws that holds down the rubber roof has worn through by the screw heads... eterna-bond tape and good to go.
