Fresh water leak

I have a 1999 Tropical and after I get back from a trip I have a very small water drip that looks like it's coming from the underside below the area where my fresh water tank is above. I check the connections in and out of the tank and their seems to be no leak. The carpet the tank sits on seams to be dry. But the leaks continues for a few days and then dries up until I use the unit again. My last two trips were different, one was full hook-ups and the other was dry camping and both times this has happened. Any advice of what I should look for?

Could it be tank condensation?

Do you fill the tank from a well. If so the ground water temperature would cause it to sweat until the temperature of the water reaches air temp. Do you notice sweating on the tank.

This is why I can't but always check this site out. Winniman, I always fill our fresh water tank from our well which will frost a glass in August (450' deep). The water is delicious and we'd rather drink it than hook up at most RV resorts. But I never thought of the tank getting condensation on it and dripping on the ground. I will definitely be mindful of it, though, if I notice water dripping on the ground. Thanks
