Default Roof Leak at Fiberglass Top Connection to Van

A rainwater leak has appeared in my 1990 Roadtrek Popular. It is at the curbside rear corner where the fiberglass top connects to the van. See photo.

Leak is evidenced by a fan-pattern of water soaking into the interior fabric wall panels, starting at a point in the upper corner and fanning out in both the side and rear fabric panels.

Any ideas on how to go about repairing this leak?

Cheers,
Mike

Just making the photo show as a jpg:



Finding the source of the leak can be a challenge. It might be right at the corner you've shown or it might originate at the awning mounts or from the air conditioner compartment.

Some RV dealers have an apparatus that pressurizes the inside of the rig, then they hose soapy water and look for bubbles. Would this be an option at all?
