1999 34' Excella street side, bow leak

Interesting.. our 34' has had a strange to locate leak. Each thing I change/repair moved the problem around.. front street side floor was damaged.. repaired...

So, the 'last' one I can't seem to find is on the street side near the bow.. you only find it by feeling between edge of gaucho and wall.. It has stumped me for 2 years now..

Repaired, cleaned, resealed, etc... replaced window gaskets, sealed all external rivets... etc, etc..

I realize there is no way someone can help without being here.. and the conditions being just right... (running water over the thing does not cause the leak to show...

Now I am to the point that the water is not running in where it is dampening the floor. It must be coming in and traveling along the C channel..

Any ideas / thoughts on where the problem might be?

Thanks in advance..

I had minor leaks at my battery boxes and both rear side storage compartment doors. I sealed everything from the top down with no luck. I finally figured out the problem was the door hinge rivets. They are plain pop rivets. I put Captain Tolleys on the rivet heads and at the back edge of the hinge so it would run down to the rivet. It solved my problem.
