I just found water in my overhead side cabinet in the front and the panel behind the cabinet is all wavy. Looks like I got some of that famous Amish craftsman work myself

How high up is the intrusion noticed?

The roof to front cap is the usual suspect, but have you considered the sidewalls to font cap connection.

How well are the plumbing, bathroom vent and skylights sealed to the roof?

How is the fit between the front cap and the stone shield. Is the cap over the stone shield?

What about the possibility of water being blown upwards under the stone shield/

Is it possibly poor drainage from the wall mounted AC unit?

I have battled a couple of pesky leaks. One was obvious, large gaps in the sealant between the roof and front cap. The second (rear wall) has proved more difficult. I have found no obvious points of water entry. I've searched carefully and notice small holes in the sealant. Applying additional sealant seems to have staunched the leak. I've also applied eterna-bond to all roof-top seams. My message is water finds a way in despite our best efforts, all we can do is keep up with it.

I got up on my roof yesterday and seen no obvious signs of potential leaks. Its warmer than usual this week so I will run my AC when I get home as the AC water tends to run to the corner I have an issue with. Maybe go back up and follow its path.

Is the awning attached in the area? I found a large hole that wasn't sealed where the wires to the awning entered the trailer.

Where do you see the water?

Also check the front marker lights. There is 3 holes for each. If it has been leaking for a while, the screws will begin to rust.

Could have a leak in one spot up high, and the water could traverse wires and framing before dripping down.
Parent's faught this for years, ended up as the tv antenna, and the water was following the antenna wire across the ceiling.

Added thought. Is it near the cargo hold doors? I had a poorly installed gasket. It it rained just right it leaked. New gasket fixed the leak.
