How about having someone hose down the roof, starting front to back, while you watch the area that the water is gathering. When you start to see water, it should give you a general idea. Go slow because it might take some time to reach the back wall.

Well i think i found my leaks. I took the vinyl strip out of the c channel that connects the roof to the walls. The last 4 screws on each end on the lowest point were rusted and water logged when i took them out. Some were so rusted that the threads rotted away. I also noticed that the end of each vinyl strip was tight on the end of the c channel so they could never really drain properly. The rain water had washed down years of dust/dirt into the c channel and it backed up perfectly to the 4th screw up on each corner. This dirt held the water and it just ran down the screws. As soon as you went to the 5th screw up the head wasn't rusty and there was no dirt on the vinyl strip.

I ended up taking JB water weld putty and putting it over each screw hole. Then i drove the screws half way in, then i coated them with goop marine sealant, and then drove them in. I also opened up the ends of the vinyl so hopefully it will drain better instead of trapping the water in the c channel. Its supposed to rain for 3 days so i will let you guys know what happens.

I have same problem. I did the hose test because it was only right side in storagw compartment. I torn lower 12 inches of wall off and sprayed hose from outside. It ended up being my taillight. Bottom side of it. I took old chalk off and when i got taillight out it has no sealer on the bottom. Thats exactly were the leak was. So i bought that sealer tape from local jayco dealer. Did it all around and sprayed again. No leak. Now gotta get inside done
