What type of 'leaks' are you looking for? Water leaks in the water lines? Use water in the water lines. Weather leaks around seams and windows and doors? Water will get in some where in do time. Clean and caulk to slow the process down, but there will always be that hidden place that you will not find until you stumble across it, and by then it might be too late. There are no guaranteeable way to find every leak able place in an RV. For several years on our past camper our bed would be wet from rain coming in a window that had a complete fiberglass awning cover over it when we would travel in the rain. Finally found out that the bath room roof vent in the back of the camper when opened (though covered to rain not able to come in) would create a suction factor from front to back and literally pull water around the front window fiberglass lip and past a closed front window and into our bed room. RVs have millions of possible areas for water infestation.You have vents over the stove and vents from the furnace, windows and doors that are not made to be air tight. Air will move into and out of these units at many places and where air can come in, water can also come in when moving down the road.
Good luck finding them all, but know (and please don't loose sleep over it) you can not stop them all, but only slow them down.
