Exclamation I hate leaks !!!!!!!

Reference: '66 globetrotter

I have leak in seam of wall located reward of the left rear window. The seam is slightly higher than top of the window. There is an OEM vent directly above it and an OEM AC just forward of that. How do I go about finding source of leak?

Much thanks!

The water of course has to come from higher up than the leak. Water can travel a long distance running on the inside of the skin... but basically you have to start at the top and look for any place water can get in. Anything that is previously sealed, like your roof top items mentioned, is the best place to start, as the most common issues are sealant drying up and cracking. Actual body seam leaks are possible too... you just have to look.

You'll only know you've got it for sure when the leak stops...

Check the sewer vent cover.
