FF Vent Leak

We’re camping in a rain storm and fwd vent is leaking. Small drips from circular area around fan blades, coming threw existing holes in base where screen pops in. I pulled off inside trim piece and there is no sign of water around sides so nothing going down ceiling/sides as far as I can see. Too wet and no way to get on roof for now so asking if anyone may have idea about source? I’ve read other posts about the upper frame piece cracking but with inside trim off seems like I’d see water behind it but it’s dry. I’m hopping it may just be the plastic cover on top , but I can’t see much from inside. If the photo came out ok, you may see a drop of water on one of the holes where the screen goes. Thx

The source of leaks is always hard to find. Our Fantastic Fan appeared to leak, but it was simply condensation because there is no insulation unlike in the rest of the roof. I hope that might also be your problem.
