Sealing the roof of older Bigfoot

I've got a 1979 Bigfoot 1600. I've replaced and sealed the roof vents, that were leaking bad.
I'm still getting water through the ceiling.
Is there a way to seal the roof?

I did find where one of the screws holding the cupboards came through the roof. It looks like it has been that way since the trailer was new.

How did you reseal the vents? Butyl tape?

I sealed the vent with butyl an then self leveling sealer.
I've found 2 holes in the roof that I've sealed with the sealer, I concerned about the ones I haven't found.
I haven't figured out how to do pictures on here yet. Is there an easy way?

After hearing about some people finding multiple pin holes in their fiberglass roofs, I've thought a little about this. I wonder if a good cleaning and wax job would be a good way to keep out very small leaks due to pin holes?
