a leak that won't quit

we've been fixing my 83 sunline 1350 and there is a consistent leak coming from behind the stove hood. the water warps the wood on the wall and pools at the edge of the counter/stove. we've pulled the new wood that we put on the wall back and there was no moisture so we thought we were in the clear. we thought it may have been condensation collecting because i had left the a/c on too high.

then yesterday i noticed that the pool of water had returned. we took off the stove hood and there was dampness around the hood vent. we don't know how the water could be getting in this vent unless the rain was upside down :P we've sealed up all the seams on the outside, around that vent too and just don't know how water could be getting in there.

has anyone had this problem? suggestions?
i'm attaching a few pics, one from the outside (where we've now taped over the vent to see if that makes a difference) and one showing the warped wall and how far the water travels, and one from where we removed the hood and showing the vent from the inside. it's not close enough to see actual water, but on the right side it shows as a wood darkening where it's been damp.

thanks in advance for any suggestion!

I noticed lights above the vent. Try resealing the lights and put a lens on the missing one. Water could be seeping in around light bulb where wires are attached.

Jim beat me to it, that is exactly what I was going to say after seeing the picture of the missing light cap.

JohnB is on a distinguished road
Times 3 on the outside light leak path.

I had to drill small drain holes in the bottom of mine to let the water out. I also have a different barnacle light setup on the 2004. I sealed the fixture to the camper early on but water still collected inside the lens from time to time. Once I saw that and before it started coming in, I created a path to let it get out.

we didn't see any visible wires where water could get in, but we patched lights up and hope that solves it!
