How do you find and seal leaks?

Ok, not that I have the ceiling off I've found the first of what I assume will be many leaks. Some come from the windows, some from the ceiling (presumably poorly sealed rivets?)

How do I go about finding them and when I do, how do I seal them for good?

I'm fortunate, in that must of the construction of the bus is aluminum and stainless which is still in great shape after 35 years, but I still want to stop the water...

A buddy outside with a hose soaking down the roof and windows will usually reveal the leaks. You missed the rainy season. I had some hellacious storms to check for leaks, not a one.

Ha ha! Actually finally found the right search terms to find some other threads.

o1marc, you're in Georgia, right? Hate to break it to you, but your rainy season didn't end. It migrated. We're just starting up here in Central New York. We should see the end of the wet season just in time for non-stop snow for 6 months.
