THanks for the quick reply. Ok so no one took a shower and I did NOT do the black flush at this point. It was our very first camping trip The sink has been used and the shower is on the other side of bathroom ( see pic) It does look like the water is gathering around the base of that wall and leaking out to the right probably because we were on a bit of an incline. It did rain plenty the first night. So if it is a roof leak do I just fix the leak or do I have to do further tear up?? I have no idea. First camper . First trip. Thanks again.

Herk, look where that window is located on the bunk wall.

And there's a skylight in the bathroom.

On the roof, is there by any chance a vent or two coming through the roof in the area of that wall? If so that may be a starting point to check the dicor sealant.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

You are right. I see the shine from it on the floor.
My money is on a leak at the skylight.

Water will always find a path (sometimes even "up" due to wicking), but in this case it is most likely down from the roof; possibly from the skylight.

If it has not been leaking long, just repair the leak and the camper should dry out without too much damage. Wait; and wall delamination and permanent, EXPENSIVE damage will occur.

On second thought you could also be right. If there is water under the bottom bunk, I would buy this as the source as well.

The next day after the rain did you find branches laying about the camp site? One might have hit the roof and bounced off the roof. Thus leaving a small tear. Standard roof repair in a caulking gun from H-Depot or Lowes can seal it. Seams like a waste of sealant but the cost (7.00) out weighs the cost of water damage. I good roof inspection is necessary after a storm. Lets just say been there done that.... :-)
