Water leak discoverd-possible antenna area

My wife, daughter and I went camping this weekend. It was pouring rain all night. We woke up to discover a water dripping onto the sofa from the ceiling above where the ceiling seam is covered by molding running the width of the trailer. I pulled off the molding strip hiding the seam and the ceiling was wet just to the left of where the antenna crank is. We packed up the campsite and headed for home (45mins).
Upon arriving at home I went up onto the roof to begin my inspection for the possible leak. I found no holes, rips or tears in the roof membrane. However what I did find was a 3 inch long fracture/fissure about 1/32 in width in the caulk about 1/2 inch up from the base the antenna. I figure the rain was landing on top of the antenna base and as is ran down over the side onto the roof it was leaking into the fissure. I applied some Dicor caulk and hope this was in fact the leak since I found no other possible areas to cause it.
I just inspected the entire roof and all caulked areas just two months ago after our Jun-Aug trip to NH and back. I guess the lesson learned here is to inspect the roof more often.
