It took me a while to type that with one finger on my iPad. You are in the area that I'm talking about. I would be trying to follow the water uphill with my fingers and/or a paper towel until you find the source of the leak. Any luck?

Notice the smaller yellow wires in the top right picture, the water is running down them from them.

check your clearance lights on top if water gets in there it will follow the wiring

I have tried that but can only reach in there so far.

The small wires in the picture are coming from the furnace toward the back of the coach in to the wall behind the shower which I assume is running to the fuse panel.

I think this is the floorplan we are working on. I suppose there is a possibility that water is leaking in through a side marker light, but the rear clearance lights are out of the question.

When you look into the upper pantry cabinet, is it possible to remove the floor of that cabinet and access the hoses and wiring from above?

The side marker light is mounted below the floor but looking inside the wheel well, I can see where water is coming out of the floor where the wires go through the floor.

This is the exact floor plan we have. The water is running down the wires where the shower and small pantry meet. I can see a hole in the wall where the wires go in to the wall but cannot reach in there to them.

The floor of the pantry will come out but I cannot see down behind the shower where the wires go in to the wall. I may have to remove the shower stall to access the wires.

That would be an extreme measure that I would not consider before completely disassembling the kitchen and pantry cabinets. I have a similar configuration, but on the other side of the coach. My shower directly abuts the wall between the bathroom and kitchen slideout. All of my plumbing and wiring run inside that wall. You have a pantry in between, which, I think, should offer better access to the guts of the motorhome than mine. I can't imagine any scenario where it would be better to remove the shower enclosure than to tear into the cabinetry. I'm nearly certain that no water pipes run inside of the wall. If the leak is inside of the the wall, then it is probably coming from the roof seam or shower skylight.

I don't plan on removing the shower at this time. I just re-sealed the seams and the skylight last week when we first noticed the leak. I was hoping that would fix the problem. I t has stopped raining here and I see no water running down the wires. I just can't figure out where the water is coming in at!!!

In my way of thinking, it's time to get out the garden hose and make your own rain. It won't take long to see if the leak is fixed.
