Water leaking in cab

Hey guys, I've been meaning to post this for a little while. Recently I have noticed that I've got a water leak under the passangers side dash, but it seems like it only leaks water when its parked on my driveway (driveway is sloped up a decent amount). I've tried looking but my shoulders are too wide so it's kind of hard for me to fit and see, and I've tried using a hose to get it to leak a bunch of times and still nothing. Its not just a couple drops, it turns into a puddle if it rains all night and I don't leave a towel on the floor. Any ideas?

I got some black RTV and pulled back the black groument with a rubber handle. When I got the black gasket back I stuck the nozel in there and started pumping it in to reseal it. I made sure to get the corners very good. I'm not sure why it started leaking but it doesn't do it anymore. I had rather bad luck because I had it coming in my back window, the brake light and the front passenger corner. I had a ton of water in my cab...

get the flowable silicone sealant, it's real liquidy so if you just run it around the windshield it will work its way into any cracks and seal them up

I did that to my rear window, took about 5 minutes, and it never leaked since

How did things turn out? I have large puddles of water at the floor board below the A pillars.
both sides. the door jamb where the door covers up at the very bottom is completely rusted out.
I will pull the front window if this is the likely culprit. flowable silicon? hmm I will have to look for that.
So whats the word?

It is something to do with my windshield. It really doesn't do it anymore ever since last time I went to town with some of the silicone.
