36RE storage wall removal;

Guys, I have a water leak underneath my bathroom, whenever I use my lavatory sink and shower as well as my washing machine I am getting water leaking out via the front under belly covering. I have closed the grey water valve and it still leaks out. This leads me to pretty much know that the water is not even getting into the holding tank. So, in order to try and access the possible source of the leaks I am going to have to try and remove the wall that is adjacent to the bathroom. Does anyone have any input on the procedure to remove the storage compartment wall? HELP PLEASE?

First try to access as much as possible by taking down the wall in the basement which exposes a ton of the utilities both up into the upper level and down into the belly. It comes down pretty easy, you just have to feel in the felt for the screws. Next the ceiling in the basement.

We have the 2013 36RL, so I'm pretty sure that our configurations are the same. The rear wall (towards the back of the coach) in the basement storage is divided into three chipboard panels covered with black fabric and secured with a number of the square head drive screws. Removal of them affords a view of the back of the electrical panel, the water heater and furnace as well as the rear of the convenience center (waste tank valve handles, etc). The only difficult part is the middle panel where the dirt devil vacuum unit is. I removed mine as I use a dyson cordless (got tired of having to get the hose and floor tool out every time). Once those 3 panels are removed (obviously you need to remove whatever is stored in here to have room), you will be able so see lots of the fresh water plumbing connections, as well as the bathroom shower and sink drain plumbing, etc. Good luck, pm me with any other questions you find.
