Possible leak

Hello, we were at our first trip this year and it rained for almost two days, i noticed a drip about every 30 minutes or so from the switch of one of the ceiling lights. When we got home i looked at roof but saw nothing obvious ( like a tear or hole) what should i look for to determine the source, our trailer is a 2008 jayfeather 19h


Thanks

Start by looking over all your seams for cracked caulking/sealant. Another spot to check is your tv antenna. Parents had a leak there and could not find it for years, as the water ran down some roof members and dripped somewhere else.

You might want to consider making your own rain. The water hose.

I had some squirrels chew some little holes in the rubber roof. They were hard to find, so just give the entire roof a good looking over. It might be leaking a far ways from that side area and just running along a wire in the roof then coming out the switch. Good luck.

Let us know if you find it. I also have a 19H, so I might learn from your experience. Thanks.

Looks like the antenna was the problem, sealed it and so far no leaks

Thx

I'ts always a good idea to go over any suspect spots on the roof with some Dicore sealant just to make sure every year or so. Hopefully you got it solved.
