My ceiling is wet over shower up to vent over the sink. I had someone put more screws in the skylight flange and reseal couple of years ago but the leak returns only during heavy rains

What is the best fix? What damage is caused and how quickly?

Best fix is to find how how the water is getting in when it rains heavy. Maybe it is not at or near the skylight, water takes the path of least resistance. Depending on how much sun exposure, your sealing may have to be redone more often. Damage will depend on construction and how far the water is traveling. If you can't figure it out, I would suggest taking it to a reputable RV repair shop and getting it looked at and fixed.

Several years ago my skylight leaked. I removed the flange on the roof and found that National RV had not applied sealant under the flange before installing it. I cleaned everything up, applied sealant under the flange and secured it again with screws. I then used sealant around the screws and edge of flange. Has not leaked since.

I replaced our sky light with a 12 volt fan. Works great for venting the shower area and have not had a problem with leaks.
