Water leak

Woke up yesterday to find the dash covered in water. We had a pretty good rain storm Friday night but have had worse and no leaks then. I think the water is coming in from the drivers side. Water isn't running down the windshield but more through the upper trim piece. I know there were some problems with earlier model coaches but didn't think this was a happening to newer models. I have a 2012 Journey 42E. Any suggestions as to where to start would be helpful.

Seal around the lights on the top of the rig on the front cap

Water will find the easiest way out. Start at the top of where you see the end result. You will most likely find a depression somewhere that holds a bit of water. It has probably been there for a while but with the movement of your vehicle the caulking has now developed an opening. Remove all the caulking and re caulk that area and hopefully you will solve your leak. Good luck.

X2 on the running lights and the caulking along the cap. I found a leak over the driver's side window where the top meets the side trim..

Check the SAT dish, especially if it's the manual one. The cables and base plate for it can leak because it does move around a lot.

Did the water test today and located the leak. It was coming from the windshield. I was able to seal and repair, no more leak. Thanks to all who replied.
