Leak in front wall or window

We had a pretty substantial water issue on our last trip with our Jay Flight Swift SLX 184BH. We were towing through heavy rain and when we pulled in to our destination the front bed was soaked for a foot along the entire front wall. There is a piece of trim that runs horizontaly a few inches above the bed that was wet, the wall below the left corner of the front facing window was also wet. I'm not sure whether water was coming through the wall and out along the trim, or in through/around he window, flowing down he wall and spreading out along the trim. I've read a couple of threads on bad window seals but it seems odd water would come in around the glass with the front cover down. Any thoughts on how to deal with this?

Check the lap sealant on the roof edges and any trim joints where there is caulking. Get a quality RV sealant, don't use painters caulk or scilicone bath caulk.
