    We have had a leak twice in the back bathroom and it dripped down from around the roof vent. But the leak enter point was in the kitchen around the sun roof. Both times we had to seal that location to stop the leak some 20 or 30 feet to the rear.

    My bet is your orginial leak has not been fixed yet. Hard to say without seeing it, but Lee is right, water will run for many feet before you see it. I have a Jayco TT on my lot right now that is driving us crazy. Gonna rain tonight, we will see.

    Of all the maintenance issues in the RV world, I think that the most universally disliked problem is leaks!

    I'm going to hazard a guess. Your leak is up on top probably in a seam with caulk that has separated ever so slightly. It might even be covered with a plastic strip separating the side/top, front cap(example) to top, etc. I had one and found it only by looking at it with an violet light that showed the separation. It was coming out of the seam between the front cap and my roof. when I removed the strip and some caulking , I found that the rubber roof had a 1/4 in gap to the front cap that had never been installed correctly when the unit was built. I fixed mine by throwing away the strip, removing the caulking , and using 'eternabond'. No more leak. Luck to you !! cheers
