Unhappy Baffled by leak

I have a 2005 Sunseeker 3100 that has a leak in the roof over the drivers seat up in the bunk area. I opened up the area a bit to see how much damage there was, and it appears to me that the water is coming in at the top corner just before it curls down and around the bunk area.
I resealed all the vents, antenna, air conditioner, ladder and the two main cross seams with the self leveling sealant. And I also sealed the long side seams right above the gutter on both sides.
It is still leaking.
We were away last week and it rained. I kept an eye on it and found that it took more than a 1/2 hour in a pretty steady rain, for the water to start seeping out in that bunk area.
I have searched all around and cannot find any evidence inside of a leak except in that bunk area, and have checked outside also.
Any ideas!!! Need help! Thanks

Are there cargo lights in or near that area? They are notorious for leaking

There are some lights across the front of the bunk area, I think 5. I did run a bead of proflex along the top edge of each light. I'll go back and take a better look and seal all around them. Thanks

I removed those lights, cleaned up the area then put new sealant, setting the lights into the fresh sealant with leak free results....so far.

Leaks..grrr

Sounds to me that the leak could be comning from the top running lights not having a good seal. Remove them check to see if any of the lens are cracked. If so replace the lens. Clean off all old sealeant, replace with new gasket or sealant and replace light.
Check any radio anteana, any projections comning out of the roof. Good Luck. OBTW
The leak is going to be hard to see. It's a small leak, due to the amount of time it took for the leak to show up inside the coach.

Best thing to do is to remove the running lights, clean up the area and resela them with Buytl tape and caulk. Those things are know leak sources.
