Is this my leak?

In May we purchased a 2015 28' Flying Cloud with no disclosed issues. A week later the excitement was quickly deflated when my wife noticed a soft spot in the rear of the camper by the queen bed. I recently removed the furniture and peeled the floor back to expose the damage. The water is coming from the rear and/or back corner. Now comes the awesome process of finding the source.

I checked the roof and everything looks ok. I did find one rivet that looks like a small leak could occur(attached). My main question is on the window seal. On our windows that are non opening it seems like the seal is broken on the bottom. Is this normal?

Read my blog post...

Ok. My guess is both but less on the rivet. You can use Acryl-R on the rivet and will need to apply several doses of Captain Trolleys to the window seal.

Here is the blog post.

Thanks for that! I will apply and see if that works

Originally from searching the forums I thought it would be the bumper leak, but being a 2015 I assumed that issue was addressed at the factory

Most likely the window. They get overlooked often.

All trailers that have storage between the frame rails just in front of the rear bumper have the potential to leak at floor level. Search "rear bumper storage leak".
Hope you do not have this issue!

I will re seal the windows and if that does not fix it I will have no other choice but to seal the bumper area

I did a search on the forums for the rear bumper leak and the remedy methods mentioned removing the screws that hold the belt trim in place. When I removed the plastic chrome trim it revealed mine was held in place by rivets. I have never dealt w/ rivets so I wanted to explore all other potential leaks before tackling it.

There are no signs of leaking on the walls of the camper, so its either running down the inside of skin or at the bumper
