Help chasing leaks.

Our new to us 2001 safari 25 rear twin experienced its first rain today, and appears to have at least one leak. The curbside twin has a very slowly growing wet spot at the very foot of the bed against the outside wall. It started at the bulkhead between the bedroom and the hanging locker and has grown to be about 1/2 inch wide and 1foot long against the outside wall. I'm thinking belt molding, but soliciting other suggestions for things to check.

We are cleaning, organizing, and will post some before and after pictures in the appropriate forum when done.

Thanks for any suggestions for things to check.

Pictures might help. I have a rear twin. The cabinet at the foot of the bed (in my model) houses the water pump and plumbing. Make sure that nothing is leaking there- fittings, etc. Check the bedroom window caulking/seal. Check the rivets on the roof- one missing, etc. I had one missing on that side about the same area. There is also a rain gutter along the side edge of the roof you might check for seal.
