Interior Water Leak-Roof puncture the issue?

Hello,
We have had our 2015 Freedom Express Liberty Edition for 4 years (it was new when we bought it, first owners). Over the 4th of July weekend we found a major leak in the interior coming from the slide out. After we took all the jacks up we found that water was then pooling in the back bathroom on the floor flowing from inside the main living area of the camper (we couldn't get in it fast enough to see where it was coming from). We had the technician look at it and they said it was coming from the skylight in the slide out. We have since pressure washed that specific skylight and found no interior leakage. However, when we got up on the roof we found several puncture holes around the bathroom skylight/vent. The technician stated that this water was not coming from those puncture holes. Since this is our first camper we are inexperienced so we are looking for anyone else that has had this issue and to see if these holes in the roof could be our issue and if there is anyway the water could be running in the wall from those holes in the roof?

Hi There, I don't have any advice for finding the leaks but a couple of things that I have learned is 1. clean that roof every 4 to 6 months. Then you will see these things before they get bad. 2. Here is a video that I watched and thought it was good advice and what appears to be a great product that might help you out.



I am not associated with the maker of the video or product. I just thought it might help.

We are looking at getting a brand new TT and I think I would just do what the video says right out of the gate to be proactive.

Thanx and good luck.
