Leak advice

I got a leak that first appeared last December in an extremely heavy rainstorm. I am getting water intrusion from the corner of the bedside table where it attaches to the front corner of the trailer. I tried to identify any possible water sources, and had no further leaks until Oct this year. We again had a minor puddle on the bedside table after a heavy storm. I added some silicon on the inside seams, and no more leaks, even after a couple of tows in heavy rain. We had hurricane Eta run through last week, and got 11 inches of rain. I had placed a towel on the bedside table just in case, and it was soaked.

No water at all in the closet just above the table, and zero in the pass through storage immediately below the leak. It is coming out of the joint where the front cap and side join.

Today I cleaned the roof seam, and put new Dicor on anything with even a hairline. I also added more silicone on the inside seams. It is obvious where the water is coming OUT, but I am struggling to identify where it is coming IN. Somewhere on the front seam.

Has anyone else encountered this? Any ideas?

Thanks.

Almost did

I will check it next. I almost did today, but I could not see a path for water from there to the intrusion point.
