water leak

Hi all I have a slow water leak that builds up in the front belly pan. I undo 5-6 screws holding belly pan, dump the water and let it dry out 3-4 days water looks clear like fresh water. I replace the screws and 2 weeks later its full of water again. Checked all fresh water connections in the vanity sink and shower that I can get to. I think it has a leak in the Pex fittings under the coach. Does anyone have any ideas?

I still wouldn't rule out the kitchen area because the water will travel. Take down the service wall (about a dozen screws) and look around all the connections for leaks. It's a good idea to go buy some pex tools for this reason. I've been lucky enough to re-crimp a clamp before and it worked. Other wise you'll have to pull the leaking clamp off and recrimp it.

I have checked all the water lines I can see. I have even checked after using the tank flush. and in the service area behind the dump valves.

We developed a 'pinhole' leak under the kitchen island. Puddled on the floor. It was from the icemaker tubing, and we did have an install by the dealership of the dishwasher. (could have been a pinked/stressed area)

Is yours possibly leaking from this area but, not above the kitchen floor? Just a suggestion.

Did you take down the service wall in the basement?


Edit: I see now that you said you checked behind the service wall. Do you have a washer/dryer?

Our fresh water drain, a 90 degree fitting broke once, might check that for a small crack or leak.
