Leak when traveling

I have a Rockwood A122S. After traveling thru a rain storm in Florida this Jan
2016. Found water all over inside the camper. From benches, stove, window curtain, floor and even the front storage area. Could not tell where it came in. Roof vent was closed and locked! Need help to figure out. Long way home to upstate NY.

I need to tighten up the side roof latches ( one on each side ) as the front roof was not pressing into the black foam that runs across the aft roof. That solved my problem.

My first suspicion would be the bubble windows. How old is the trailer? Set it up and hose the two slopes, then check for leakage inside. If you find the bubble windows leaking, it's time for the 3M Extreme Sealing Tape treatment.

It is a 2016. Bubble windows seem fine still. Was not Sure if roof vent because when driving it is really backwards.

Leak from storage compartment

This is probably not the ultimate source of all the water, but we notice that if we tow in the rain, it seems to shoot up from the TV rear tires and sneaks in under the front storage lid. We are working out some solutions but nothing that great so far.

The front storage latches are as tight as they can be without cutting the threaded adjusters. We may do that next season, it would probably only take 1/4" to make it much tighter.

Just a thought.

Took it in to tamparv. They replaced the foam seal on the back roof panel and added an additional rubber seal on the top roof panel. They feel it will get us back to Albany NY, our home, dry. But rear roof panel is bent and need replacing.
