I have not used these products, but one of them might be part of your solution.

Vulkem sealer, is the extremely long lasting very durable sealer.

The roof is fiberglass, so you could just use fiberglass mat and resin to make the seal as perminant as the original roof. Just make sure there's no sealant around the holes (need to do this no mater what you do) and scuff up the area. A small section of mat fiberglass and brush on some resin with hardener and your done. If done right, theres no chance of leakage.

I am eventually going to remove all of that Eturnabond. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to use for that?

Why the descision to remove the Eternabond? No fun removing all the Eternabond if it's stuck down right. Just removing a few inches too a fair amount of time using heat and an X-acto knife. If it comes off easily, then it never was stuck down correctly.

I am going to try the fiberglass resin/mat repair after removing the box this evening and hope this will end my leaks

Hopefully the box is the source of the leak and sealing the mounting holes after removing it will fix your problems. Exactly where are you seeing water inside the cabin? I thought your original water leaks were seen at the front.

Check the seal/seam between the roof and the molded end cap on the MH. Pick at the seal material to make sure that there is a good bond. That area, both front and back, needs to be checked often to prevent water intrusion.
