I found a brush (not stiff wire) on a drill helps a bunch getting the old off.

And after replacement of both fan/vents.

Well we have had lots of rain and snow and I can say I appear to be leak free. I just want to say these leaks can venture anywhere, I had leaks in one place inside to come from at a place far away from the roof leak point. All I can say, look everywhere.

Whooohooo! I'm waiting for the weather to cooperate so I can start sealing the seams and vents. (Not necessarily in that order) Identification of the potentials is the first step. Accumulating the necessary materials was the second. Waiting for warmer temps is the third...

If the Eternabond has failed,(lifted) it is readily noticeable with a quick inspection. Just remove the failed area and clean again before patching. Installation of Eternabond is only as good as the cleaning job before installation. I check mine regularly for any sign of a bubble under the tape.
If the tape looks good, then your leak is somewhere else. Sewer vent, etc.

I agree with Dave. I wouldn't blame the Eternabond tape. Many, including myself, have had great success with it. If there is ANY silicone residue or other containment between the Eternabond tape and the surface it will not adhere. In my case I found that the PO had used silicone in spotty areas around vents and skylights. Each time I had an adherence issue it was always related to this. Cleaning with acetone just seems to spread the silicone around. It takes a good cleaning with TSP to get the residue off. If the tape is sticking then the seal is good. Water can not penetrate a good Eternabond seal.

Try to locate the source of the leak by using a hose and directing water at areas on a dry day. Soak an area and let it sit for a few hours before you check for leaks in another area. Check all areas that you've used the Eternabond tape and look for lifted areas. If you don't find any, then start to suspect areas that you didn't use the tape on, like AC openings.

All the seams including at the back all looked good before applying Eturnabond. I applied Diecore around the base of those and don't think water is getting in. Maybe the box mounted to the roof which is in the center and I wouldn't think water would go there. This leak has been around a long time, the tops of the cabinets are rotted away.

Any thoughts?

By the way this is an older pic before replacing the skylite and 2 vents

I'd be suspicious of the AC and any of the rail mounts.
