ok, so I am a newby (still inside of my 1st year) with owning a travel trailer. I have a 2012 Dutchman Coleman RB240 with slide.
We camped last weekend and had a bad storm- a ton of rain. I woke up at 6 am to head to the restroom when I stepped in a water puddle
. The water was coming in from the top of my slide. Now, I will first admit that I have never parked level and never have seen a reason why it should be level side to side, and front to back...
When the rain came in from the top of the slide (it was extended), I believe that it was because the TT was not level. The slide was the highest point vs the other side of the trailer. Basically the water butted against the seal. I suppose whatever water that did not run down the side of the top, came inside.
I have read articles that say parking level is a must all the way to slider covers are a must. I am thinking regardless, shound't the seals have done their job better? Or should I not expect the seals to hold back 100% of water? I probably had 1/3 gallon of water in my camper.
also, the seals do not seem to be dry-rotted or in bad shape. I do spray the lube on them as suggested by CW.
Please chime in!!
