Palomino Columbus 385BH - Water Leaks

I bought one of the new Columbus models last summer and absolutely love the unit, however, I am having water leak issues. The first leak was attributed to a PEX fitting near the hot water heater, now I have discovered more water pooling above the plastic sheeting underneath the fifth wheel. After the first repair, the water has been off for a month...we have had extremely heavy rains here for the past several weeks...could rain water be the source of this new problem, and if so, what would be possible entry points?

Any input you can provide would be appreciated!

Welcome to the forum!

I suppose you could have a leak in the water piping for the washer/dryer rough-in but you should see some evidence of that in the basement storage. The other possible source would be the seam between the roof and the front cap.
