Roof leak

I have a 2016 Winnebago Era on a 2015 Mercedes chassis. Which I bought in 2017, there were some water stains on the walls near the street side window behind the drivers seat and behind the curbside bedroom window. I had no leaks, however, until the fall of 2019 when I noticed some drip from the top edge of the curbside window over the bed. I have sprayed with hoses, caulked around the window, the outdoor patio light, the exterior speakers and throughly checked and watered around the air conditioner. I have sprayed all over the roof. No leaks with light daily drizzles nor with a cloudburst yesterday. Tonight however after 18 hours of almost steady rain, there again is water on the curbside bunk and the wall covering behind the window around the reading light.
Where do I go from here? It is store outside with no cover.There is no water or stains in the cabinets over the window. There is a visible drip from the molding over the center of the window. All help and/or suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Finally found out about pressure testing the coach for outside water leaks. Nearest facility is over a hundred miles away.

I used a leaf blower and weak soap solution to chase window leaks. Keep blower 3-4 feet from inside of window or air will just pass thru seal, leak or no. (just need a slight pressure differential) Check window seals, frame and nearby seams....

You didn't mention if the leak was on the side with the slide.

Winnebago Era is a class B with no slide.

Except for the 70M, which is the Murphy bed version with a single slide opposite the sliding door.
