Water leak

Any ideas on locating a water leak on my Open Road. Leaking down kitchen cabinet running between sink & door.

Well, you gave us very little to go with, but here goes. Can you see your plumbing, maybe take out all your drawers. My water headache has been my ice maker -- they installed it with not a half inch of excess plastic line, and it was rubbing on the edge of the furnace. Monaco.....nice coaches put together by morons.

Welcome to IRV2!

You didn't give us much to go on and so the possible locations of your leak are quite a few. How about posting the year and model of your coach?

Possible kitchen area leaks are:
- Sink caulking
- leaking faucet
- water line connection (like to the faucet) needs to be tightened
- drain line loose and leaking
- roof leak (has it been raining)
- hole or puncture in a pipe

I had an under sink leak in my Allegro Open Road. Turned out it was a mis-installed sink trap. Took 5 minutes to find, 30 seconds to fix.

We had the wrong sink trap installed as well on our 2014 Allegro Red Open Road. Maybe the same person putting them in.

Sorry for the delay. Water leak is somewhere along the outside wall over the kitchen sink, running inside the cabinet seam downward between the window & o/s door pooling on the left side of the kitchen sink facing forward. Any ideas?

OK, so this is a roof leak and it only occurs when it rains? There are several places to look in the kitchen area. Check the caulking around the 1) Vent fan exhaust; 2) top of the window (if you have one); 3) the Fantastic fan; and 4) the refrigerator vent (assuming you have the gas/electric model).

Other potential areas (it sure would be nice if you told us your model and year) are the awning bolts and areas around slide seals if your kitchen is in a slide.

If you decide it might be the awning bolts, you would remove one at a time, fill the hole with caulk, replace the bolt.

I know most of this is general information but if you want more specific help, you can try the Tiffin RV Network. Lot's of owners hang out there so you are more likely to get model specific help.
