Elusive small leak on underside of Awning resolved.

I have had an elusive small leak on the underside of the awning that has come and gone and moved around that I have not been able to resolve. This week while camping in a light rain I pulled out ladder and decided to try again. I could change where the leak was by tilting the TT nose up and down. I was able to narrow it down to the screw that holds the awning in the track. It was installed at a shallow angle so that the end of the self tapping screw penetrated the gutter allowing water to enter the awning track and depending on the tilt of the TT exit the track at different spots and run down the underside of the awning. Backing out the screw and filling the hole with sealant before reinserting the screw resolved it.

My awning drips right over the door! I've looked and can't see any holes but maybe I need to look again.
