Where is the leak?????

We have a 2010 Four Winds Chateau with the rear corner queen bed.
When it rains, we are getting water on the plywood under the mattress at the rear corner of the RV.
There is no sign of dampness or watermarks on the ceiling or the walls so I do not know where the water is coming in.
At the rear corner of the roof the silicone sealant has a small crack or separation about three inches long, and the bracket that holds the awning looks a bit suspect too.
The plywood around the tail lights shows signs of water damage, but they are below the bed.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to where this water may be coming from.
Thanks,

hard to say, especially since I don't know your floor plan....
water leaks can travel and can be very hard to pin down.
Just shooting from the hip..... you say rear corner.... so
slide seals?
rear clearance lights
tail light... (I don't know if these same lights that have the common issue were used back in 2010, but something to check)

BUT if it's not a slide issue, my bet is someplace up on the roof...at the edge of the membrane.

and you said silicone. If you have silicone caulk up on the roof, that's probably it.....but it's probably not silicone.
