Water Leak

I went into the bathroom one day and noticed a lot of water on the counter and some on the floor. I get to looking around and there is some drops of water just underneath the light fixture. Under the light fixture is a mirror, looks to be glued to the wall. Under the mirror is also some water drips.
So I got some tarps and my neighbor and I threw a couple over the top and tied them down. Most of the front is tarped and past the middle with about 10 feet UNtarped in the rear. Still leaks. The bathroom is in the middle of coach. It's dry today, no rain. I'm wondering where and how the water is still coming in. My coach is leaning very slightly to the rear according to my level. Do you think maybe the water is traveling down the gutter then somewhere entering the coach? I might throw a couple more tarps on and see what happens. I can't do any taping and sealing this time of year.
Thoughts or suggestions besides taking it to a shop and having them reseal the whole coach.
Thanks gang.

I would check clearance up front and any place front of the leaking area. Where is your AC unit, remove inside grilling and check if the nuts hold it down are just snug, never over tighten them.

Fiberglass. Usually too wet around here to tape, although, I did a little taping while it was dry to test a thought.

Stroker. Ah yes. Clearance lights. I've read about those before, thanks for the reminder.

Waiting for it to rain again and see what happens. I did notice where the front cap attaches to the roof where it rounds down to the side, was an open seam, I taped there for my test.
FYI, the rig is just parked lately. No traveling down the road when I noticed the leak.
Thanks friends. I will update later.
Have a Great Day!!
