Have a similar problem..... over the cab on drivers side (bubble forming in ceiling) and back passenger side corner.... molding was popped off from Ice last winter while it was stored, but from looking at how rotted the wood was behind the fiberglass, I can tell it's been leaking there for a long time... The previous owner had blown the motor and left it to sit for 5 years under a tree in his back yard before moving it (not sure how he moved it) to the front yard, and put the for sale sign on it.... he also scavenged (pirated/pilfered) the generator as well.
As well as over the side door the wood is rotted and decentigrated. I'll be digging the rotted wood out and slipping some one by material and glueing them together at the seems, then replacing the molding over it. and replacing all the silicon around the windows and seems. I wasn't planning on pulling the windows out, but.... might be worth doing it right, instead of just trying to be done...
I picked up a generator to replace the missing one, but I think it's a little bigger than the opening, and has to be wired by someone who knows what to do with it... I'ld hate to put it in and either not have it working right, or worse, burn my rv up... I ordered new deep cycle batteries for the 12 volt system (buddy knows someone who can get them at a discount if I don't might them with a blimish or what have you (scratch and dent specials I guess...)
