frost heaving

Our RV has an add a room attached (roof attached in the trailer track). This year with the heaving, we had major water damage What can we do to the roof of the florida room to prevent leaking in the I beams? My husband has re-caulked the entire roof of the add a room several times, but, also with the heaving, it continually cracks.
After re-caulking this week-end, it is raining today, and it is leaking again.
Is there any way we can put a roof over the existing roof, and , how do we manage where it meets the rv?
Any suggestions?
Also, if we do a roof over, can we insulate between?...... Or....if we put a drop ceiling in the add a room, can we add insulation there? Would this stop the condensation we are dealing with? T

Post interior and exterior photos. If possible, include the connection of the add a room to the RV.
