Another leak, bathroom 2017 25FB

Not sure if the video loaded correctly but looking for some help to see where this leak may be coming from. When it first leaked a couple months ago, the dealership sealed up the vent fans on both sides. It only leaks when it really, really downpours. Almost as if the water is pooling somewhere. Any ideas? Thanks y'all!

I have EXACTLY the same leak. Only appears in a complete downpour.

Hm. I dunno. I have a 25fb and one time.. just once... I found drops after a rain on the floor under that very spot. Course, I had left the fan vent open... so I assumed it was that. Now I gotta keep an eye out. Cause that ain't good. Mildew and mold grow quick.

In a downpour I found that maybe 10 drops had dropped. Previously I had seen a small telltale drip mark and nothing more.

Sounds like a gasket leak within the fan /vent itself.

Tagging into this thread as well, though I wish I was offering a solution.

We had this exact leak form after a massive hail/rainstorm in Idaho a few weeks ago. One thing I did notice was that I also had water drop down directly from the fan when it was turned on during our investigation, leading us to think there was a pooling issue as well.

We were planning to go up top and look at the sealant around that vent the next time we got the trailer back from storage, but it sounds like your dealer already looked at that possibility.

I would check the seal job they performed. I would also look in at least a 4 foot radius from where the leak appears inside. Is it sitting in a level position? If you have the tongue a little high then it could be coming from a more forward location on the roof. Then it finds the path of least resistance which could be far away from the real problem. Unfortunately they say it's built like a Aircraft when it's really not. We seal all our seams before riveting together. When you do that properly then you won't get water intrusion anywhere even at 400 kts.

We had a similar leak in the same area. Turns out it was where the solar wiring entered the top.
Suggest the dealer pressurized leak test. $200 but well worth it to find all the leaks before they can cause real damage. T

We have also Flying Cloud 2017 25FB and this post and video describes exactly what is happening to us at the same spot in the bathroom, it really needs to downpours for the leak to show, we are on the road at the moment, any suggestions apart from the ones in these thread?

Thanks,
