Help! Camper is wet

I have never owned a camper before and just bought a second hand 2016 jay series 100ud. Iíve had it in my driveway closed for the last 10 days and itís been raining/snowing in that time. When I looked at it before buying there was no sign of leaks and the owner said no leaks.
I put the shrink wrap they gave me on it but also added a large tarp on top. Perhaps I shouldnít have done that as when I took off the tarp, there was some ice on the back end. Iíve now opened it up for the first time and the whole back end is saturated. How do I check for leaks, fix them and how do I dry it all out?

First off, welcome to the forums!

I'm assuming this is a pop up aka pup. You may wish to also check over at the popup portal. There are lots of great folks over there with specific knowledge of pop ups. Oh course also stick around here.

The steps to dry are
Stopping more water from coming in
Getting fresh air circulating around the wet stuff.

I'd crank up the roof and have it fully set up to air out.

Was the entire roof covered with a tarp? How did the previous owner have it stored? Does the roof look intact? Are there any cracks?
