As for the water on the roof, I'm thinking vent not properly glued, or blown off pipe beneath the rubber membrane. May want to check that all is intact.

The photos were more to demonstrate the sealant between the inner and outer parts of the water heater that sandwich the wall between them. ANY water that falls in the "tray" at the bottom will enter the camper if the sealant is bad or missing.
You can easily introduce more water into the tank using a sewer cap with a hose connection on it.
Many people think that the hose connection is for FLUSHING when it is not.
It is to hook up a drain hose for the gray tank.
If the OP used a cap like this to back flush his black tank, the only place for the water to go is up the vent stack.
A flush fitting is a CLEAR plastic sewer section so you can see the color of the sewer flush.
