In waskington and rains alot and tired of putting bucket on dash to catch water.
I have seen this 3 or 4 times in the hard fiber glass type roofs. While I was in the service dept of a local RV dealership I found that the water was getting in by way of the space between the awning rail and the roof. I tried to seal just like you did but that did not work.
On a sunny day I got a sprinkler and put it on the rear of the motor home and tilted the front down a hill. Water came pouring in the front at the dash and drivers side control panel.
The only thing we found that fixed it, after many trys at sealing, was pulling off the awning rails, ac, and vents and putting a rubber roof on. One would think there was an easier fix but we never found one.
One customer tried to always have the moho front higher than the rear and it started coming into the rear at the bedroom.
