Remove water in Azdel

Ive read that Azdel is great for inhibiting molds and delamination

Our 2018 Leprechaun has a factory workmanship error. Rear roof molding did not get caulked and has just been discovered. One might think it would have been obvious, but no one even Riva techs have walked right over it not noticed.

Water meter detects moisture along the length of the roof on both sides. Inside even over the cab reads 100

Is this a disaster and or can we get the water out of the walls?

My guess is that there is moisture in the foam insulation. Asdel is different from the older fiberglass over thin plywood found in older RVs. It was the plywood layers that delaminated from each other. Azdel is all composite so will not delaminate.
I am pretty familiar with moisture meters from a 40+ year career as a boat builder and marine engineer. We had to repair a lot of holes drilled by surveyors to investigate "moisture problems" only to find dry core under the fiberglass skins. Normally, even dry wood will have about a 14% moisture content so readings should be considered relative to something else. If you are finding simalar moisture readings well away from the leak, I would tend to be skeptical of the meter.
