Long slide leaks

Here's a copy of a post I made to the members:
My super slide has been leaking bad when it rains from that side, and heavy wind driven rain. I checked with my dealer's service manager.....well, I figured I better fix it.
As long as my repair doesn't require removal of that slide and a rebuild; (It sags in the middle a little)
So, I examined the slide roof at the inside of the roofing as it butts up to the inside flange.
I found gaps where the water seeps in, so I caulked it. This may fix my problem. If any of you have this gap, you might seal it before it does leak all over your heads on the sofa. Pics:

We had a major leak in this side while in Florida. The slide was extended, and the water made a puddle in the overhead cabinet and was gushing down both sides of the lowered day/night shade. Keystone said to call the local dealer...Liesure Time RV, Pensacola...they were way too busy to help, even though it was a major water leak...in Florida...in the spring. We moved on to Foley, AL, while in Robertsdale, AL, we stopped just to talk to Emerald Coast RV. Long story short, they fixed it while we waited and we were on our way in two hours. Apparently, the tape that is supposed to seal the row of screws on the outboard edge of the top of the slide was not sealed. Emerald Coast sealed the leaking slide and sealed the other three just to be safe.
