Welcome to the forum. no question to dumb. There's allot of knowledge here.
Do you know where the leak is? If it's large I'd clean with acetone then cover with eternabond tape. EternaBond. If it's the caulk failing then reseal with Dicor self leveling caulk after cleaning with acetone but no silicone. https://dicorproducts.com/catalog/ro...-lap-sealants/

Thank you do you know if I could do a rubber roof coat?? I would like to seal off the entire roof since I just bought it. I'm not positive how the leak is happening but it is pretty bad on the wall above and next to the door in the bedroom. The previous owner said it had had a small leak for a while. I need to get up to cam and look at the roof.

You can coat the roof with EPDM rubber roof coatings but you need to stop leaks first. Also check framing under trailer for rot, use an ice pick and probe for soft wood.

If it's a seam leak could it be pricy?? Can I buy any materials at Walmart or lowes?? Those are the closest to the camp site... Or I can go to the tv place here at home
