eek leak

Making my 4th trip with my 2010 WCV 30 keystone cougar this week but this is my first wet trip. It has rained two days straight with no wind. And I unfortunately discovered that my trailer has leaked on the floor around the bedroom closet partition and possibly under the dresser. I bought the unit new in July of 2011 and have been happy so far but I have worked to get it dried out with towels and a fan but the carpet was soaked along the edge of the one side of the closet and now its raining again! I've called keystone and my dealer and will be taking it in this weekend but wondered if anyone has guidance about 1 what could this leak's origin be (doesn't seem to be coming down the interior walls from above) and 2 how best to deal with the manufacturer since this must be a structural problem and I've had it just over a year. I keep it parked beside my house and of course it has been rained on at home but I never checked the carpet for leaks. I keep my a/c on at home just for humidity but no smells from mildue have been noticed. Thanks for any insight!

Seam leak around the v shaped nose? How's the roof look above that area?

Thanks a possibility although can't see a problem on the roof. I'm worried also about water in the walls if it is coming through the seam. Your thoughts?

Roofs need yearly or 6 month maintenance. Seams and items that penetrate the roof need inspection for cracks and places water can enter. Use of Dicor self leveling caulk is a normal part of my 6 month roof inspection. The seams and roof of an RV are subject to weather AND movement, so constant monitoring is important. Good luck and I hope you've caught it before damage to structure occurs.
