Roof leak question

Iím sure itís been asked and answered a ton of times, so can someone point me to a thread for help repairing the roof?

I have a soft spot maybe 2 foot by 5 inches where the roof meets the curved aluminum front. Iíve resealed it a number of times already. The side edges feel solid.

We have also had problems with the wallpaper at head of the bed where it is bubbling and separating from the wall. Thatís what actually tipped me off. Any idea if that is wood behind there? Iím guessing not since it is curved, but I have no idea.

Iím desperate for help!

Since you have no information of what type, year, make or model of RV you have, listed in your profile, it makes it kinda hard to answer your questions.

Well, since it's stick and tin construction, it will be wood framing.
BUT if the nose is curved, it might have some aluminum framing in it.

The repair will be pretty straight forward. Having done water damage for a long time, be prepared to to find that the damage extends out further then what you posted.
