Weird Leak

I have a leak in a weird location in the upper bunk of my class C, as evidenced by a damp area on the cushions. But I've never seen it leak as I keep it in a lot away from the house. Further, in my area rain is heavy but rare.

I suspected that it would have been from the front window of my 1993 Minnie Winnie but I know that the window was recently sealed, there is no visible evidence of a leak there (or anywhere) and the cushion is not wet near the window. It is wet away from the window, obviously getting wet from above.

There is a roof vent over the cushion, but the wet area does not appear to be directly below the vent, but about 6" away or more.

I'm at a loss. Ideas?

Way too wet and in only one area. Also way too dry here (desert).

I had a leak which was way back in the left corner of the roof. It was sealed just not good enough. On a hard rain the water would run up the seam about 4 feet and drip into one of the storage cabinets inside. At first we thought it was the vent, but after taping and sealing still had the leak, so kept looking. You might be able to find it if you use a garden hose on the roof and see if you detect moisture inside. You need to find the leak before your roof is ruined.
