Roof leak

We have had a leak between the power vent and the skylight in the bathroom. The roof was resealed last year when we first noticed the leak but that showed no improvement. Any ideas where there may be a place for water to get in around the power vent?

How about a worthless plug to find out info on your trailer - like year make and model to give better assistance

Where does the water puddle - in the tub?

I have a roof leak and it was antenna wire - it came down the hole and into the cabinet

Sorry for the lack of info. 06 shamrock Hybrid. Drips from the molding piece between the vent and the skylight. Doesn't quite make it into the tub

How does the sealant look on the roof?

The flexible sealant we need to use will migrate over time and must be repaired every couple of months. A dab here and there to maintain the watertight integrity of the roof penetrations.

If it has been a while you may need to get up there before serious damage occurs and ruins your camper.

Forgot to Mention - Use the Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant to fill any gaps

My old motohome had the same problem. Was not the sky light or the bathroom vent. It was the roof air conditioner. Pulled it and replaced the gasket and no more leak. Water will find it's way everywhere.
