The light is LED so not much heat. The window gasket could be the problem. I hosed the window pretty good and nothing came through. We're expecting quite a bit of rain over the next few days here in Houston. I plan to visit the 5th during or after the rain and run the slides out and look some more.
This hound is still huntin'.

What is the wall construction on that 5ver? Is it aluminum studs? My parent’s last TT, had AL wall construction. During the colder months, that unit there was a lot of condensation built up along the walls at the studs and top cap. It was very noticeable I the morning. I would say take it out camping, use it like normally, and look for condensation. Toilet Paper (TP) works great to detect low level moisture. If it is condensation, replace the trim, just cut it a bit short so it is not touching the outside wall, so a bit of air can get in there and dry things out.

Well...

I'm still leaning towards something spilled in that cabinet. You know the old Sherlock Holmes quote "Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth."

Ok, busted! Good rain here and the criminal returns to the scene of the crime.
This drip is coming from the upper window frame.
The bride also discovered a dribble from the elect plug to the left of the window. The carpet in the cabinet (floor level) at the far left corner is also damp.
I'm thinking it is a roof leak after all and when I sprayed it down last weekend I didn't give it long enough for the water to trickle down. I believe the window frame leak comes from water inside the wall reaching the window and coming in around the inside window frame.
So on to the biggie. I have a few months on the warranty left but will Jayco cover this? All told I see the trim damage that I posted earlier, the cabinet tops to the left and right of the TV.
Any experiences with claims involving roof leaks?

Don't be surprised to hear from the dealer "has the roof been regularly maintained, inspected, and serviced by an authorized dealer during the warranty period?"
