Shower skylight leak

Checked in camper after a big rain and found 1/4" water in shower. Drained it out with shower drain open but don't see any where it leaked. Anyone else had this problem and what was fix?

your skylight is one of the millions that are cracked and leaking. They over torque all plastic pieces cause the workers don't understand that torquing metal to metal vs. torquing plastic to metal needs a different torque gun...real simple.
They just over caulk the outside and eventually the crack gets bigger and gets exposed to rain. Take the inside cover over the shower off to see if it is wet there. Leave it off for a while if it is wet . cover the outside skylight untill you can get it fixed. that is my guess anyways as that happened to mine.

It happened to me as well. Like Harley said, take off the inside part of skylight. That should confirm if it was the skylight. I noticed a lonely little drop of water on the frame of the skylight. Shower tub was dry. It ran down the back wall requiring replacement.

I just went through this on our Rushmore. Some skylight manufacturers recommend flashing with no screws through the skylight. Wasn't sure about doing that, so I bought the one with pre-drilled holes. Bought a box of fender washers to spread the pressure from the screw head out. We shall see

Found a couple small cracks up there, chalked them, and so for so good. We expect three days of rain next week, we shall see...
