Hey look, no basketball hoop in the picture! I just got home from a 3200 mile spin around the storm. Headed counter clockwise on the 70 to the 25 then back on the 40.

The first thing to fix is the roof. The area over the lounge had two florescent lights, and that design compromised the strength, so the roof pulled away from the top channel, and began to leak.
Here is a photo after removing the fiberglass (the new front panel is already installed)
