Leaking in closet slideout

Being new to this site, I may have asked this question before in the wrong place.
I am wondering if anyone who has a Winnebago Journey with the closet on the slide out has had a problem with it leaking. When I pulled something out of the closet, to my horror several items were moldy. I have cleaned it and put the dehumidifier in the closet but am afraid it may leak again, especially since we are hosting at a campground in the Pacific Northwest, where it is very wet in the fall/winter. I would appreciate any answer and thank you in advance.

Would be helpful if you posted your year on your signature. Our 2004 never leaked.

Is it wet on the corner to the outside of the coach or to the inside towards the front? In our old Endeavor the inside corner of our bedroom slide would get wet with heavy rain. I figured out that the slide seal which was essentially a flap was not facing out. Had to manually flip it out. Not sure about your model but some slides have a slightly U shaped vertical channel that runs from the inside edge to the outside edge of the slide. It is tilted down to the outside edge to redirect water that might run down the inside edge of the slide. This is just a guess on my part based on previous experience.

A common issue with leaks around slides is the "wiper gaskets". They are designed to wipe on slide movement so should be facing out when the slide is fully open. Often they do not "flip" when the slide starts to move. Check these on your slide. If they are not pointed out when open, you could have water intrusion. I had a problem with mine not flipping and installed vertical weather stripping about 1" wide x 3/16" thick on both sides of the slide about 2" from the inside edge. This causes the wiper gasket to flip out when movement begins when the slide is opened. Might also check the corners on the gaskets to make sure they are OK - not ripped. Good luck,
