Default Leaking roof

Does anyone have any experience with roof leaks that might point me in the right direction on finding the leak. I have a leak in the bathroom ceiling somewhere. It is destroying my walls. If I take the skylight down I can see it is all wet in there.

Any help would be great as I've looked forever and can not find it.

Thanks, Dave

Sometimes roof leaks can be a real pain to locate. But skylights are notorious for leaking. I would go up on the roof and check the sealant around your skylight.
Look for any loose sealant, cracks in the sealant and possible cracks in the skylight itself.
Also check the sealant around any vents.

I do this on a yearly basis and usually I clean the sealant, then add any that looks questionable to reseal.

A few years ago, Gulfsteam service techs removed all the sealant around my skylight over the shower and put all new sealant to seal the skylight that I had a leak in. We were at a
Back Home Rally that was held by the GulfStreamers where the Gulfstream Company had their service techs do service for the attendees of the rally.

Good luck, But roof leaks can be found and sealed with patience and careful examination by the owner.

Thanks for your response. It's weird because there's no moisture around the skylight the moisture is in the back corner. I was looking for moisture coming from the air conditioner unit but it's dry going in that direction. When looking at the top of the camper I cannot see any cracks or anything in the seals that's why I'm so confused.

You might want to check the TV antenna if you have one. Water can travel along the wire and end up anywhere. Once you locate the leak remove the skylight and have a fan blow air into the attic to help things dry out, do this for several days.
