Leak in cabinet on our first trip

We took our TT camping for the first time this week. For 2 days we had heavy rain and wind come through several times during each day. My husband was sitting at the dinette and there was water dripping onto the table. It was coming from the upper cabinet where the radio/DVD/CD player is. It only dripped a few drops and then never did it again. The antennae and everything is on the roof above that so I'm wondering if maybe the water is coming in from there but not sure why it would be only a few drops unless that is all that dripped through the cabinet. Hopefully inside that cabinet it's not soaked. Any suggestions on where to check to see where the water could be coming from and how to get the radio out of the cabinet?

Might be a good idea to pull the radio out, check for water and dry. If its like mine it has 4 screws in the face holding it in the cabinet. Should slide out the front.
If the antenna is above the radio cabinet a good guess could be thats where the leak is coming from.
May have to get up on the roof and have a look. Check for bad / old caulking.

before you bought this used TT, did you check the roof for good maintenance?
such as the condition of the roof caulking?
