I've got the entire interior out of mine doing a 'Monty. Many things back there can leak. There is Vulkem sealant along the seams of the outer shell aluminum panels (on the inside, obviously). There are several small leaks where the Vulkem is beginning to age. Also, The power wires for the rear running lights leak in a couple of spots. These lights are riveted to the outer shell and a small hole is drilled and the wire inserted there. These holes and mounting rivets are sealed on the interior side with Velkem. The point is that the leak may be a long way from where you actually see the water.
Try the hose and a helper trick. Have a helper take a water hose and start at the bottom of the camper and work his way up (slowly) while you stand inside and try to find the leak. Sometimes it works, sometimes leaks can be hard to find. And sometimes (as in my case) you have multiple leaks. Good Luck and happy "hunting".
