leak near front bed in 19' roo hybrid

I searched around site and haven't been able to find answer so here goes. I just bought a 2012 Rockwood Roo 19' hybrid. Owner said no leaks and i believe him. I see no water damage on inside or outside. After bringing home i had a leak. Mattress and couch were wet. Bed was closed. I dried everything and chaulked it up to not having it level. We took it out the first time Oct 10th. It rained for 3 hours at night. It leaked again. Drip was hitting couch and shelf in front of mattress. Drip is coming in where canvas is attached to body and behind curtain channel. I brought it home and checked everywhere. I found a couple minor cracks in chaulking where rubber roof meets fiberglass. I resealed them. It rained again this weekend and I saw more water. Is it possible the rail that holds rubber roof to fiberglass is leaking and allowing water to run down to were canvas meets body? That's almost a foot away.

Check the clearance lights. I found mine full of water which eventually seeped inside where you're getting leakage. Removed, dried, and ruthlessly caulked the openings and the leak stopped. Did this 13 seasons ago and again last month when the problem came back.

I Eternabond taped the roof seams at the front and rear but that didn't stop the leak.

Never thought about that. It does start right away. Has to rain a bit first. I was going to clean roof and reseal trim along end of rubber roof.

I pulled light and found factory chalking only seal half the hole that wires run Through. I added more silicone. Also checked trim that hold rubber roof to fiberglass. Noticed several places that could leak. I sealed them and hit roof with hose. I noticed right in middle behind trim water pooled. That could be an issue. After silicone dried and I hit with water no leak inside. Suppose to rain tomorrow. Final test.

Leak appears fixed

It rained almost the entire weekend. Some areas got 2” of rain. Checked trailer after all the rain and found no leak. I had rechalked one marker light and trim on roof that mates rubber to fiberglass.
