EVERGREEN ASCEND TT BHS 232 roof/wall leak

Just found a leak on inside of trailer in on the wall at a joint in the panels over one of the bunk beds....I have a 2015 of course with no warranty so here goes looking at the roof its a fiberglass panel bent down to form the rear wall. I looked at the penetrations on the roof and all look pretty good sealed with dicor? The only things I could find that seem to be not normal was one of the vent caps had the cover unjared I snapped it down and it appears normal and along seam where the roof meets the wall one part of the trim I could see was not caulked..

The rookie is wondering could water migration followed a path three feet in the wall and ran to a break in the foam wall insulation..I think I know the answer but was sick.

Now I know my wife will be mold WARY and plan to try and correct then may hopefully dry things up and take a mold test and mail it off.

What kind of structural foam did Evergreen use it doesn't absorb water does it.

water travels for sure. Put a fan on the wall, and dry it out.. should be fine provided you stopped the leak.

A lot of RV places also have leak detect system where they somehow put airflow inside and watch for where the air comes out.. it has a catchy name, just didn't catch it...

Leak something detection.... sounds like it could be a win for you though.
