Leaky Fresh Water Tank

I have not heard of a leaky fresh water tank, especially not one that is one year old and just out of warranty, but I think I have one. The shelf that the water tank sits on has been wet now for the past two weeks. I have drained the tank, however I does not completely drain as the drain is about a half and inch higher than the bottom of the tank. This elimiantes the couplings. The tank however is in place where it appears to be impossible to remove without tearing the entire basement apart. Any ideas?

Not sure what type of coach you have, but we had a similar situation with our Country Coach. It turned out that when we replaced the water filter, we just didn't tighten it enough.

Without seeing a photo of the fresh water reservoir or the plumbing configuration, I will offer up an experience I had. I also had experienced a water leak at the floor of the fresh water tank and immediately I began to fear the worst, a crack in the tank. Fortunately, after a more detailed examination, it turned out that it was a fitting on the water line connection on the bottom of the tank had apparently vibrated loose. After tightening up the fitting, the leak problem was solved.

As I think most in the RV community can relate to, there are a lot of weird things happen when systems or components are subjected to the stresses and vibrations associated with driving these mobile houses over the highways.

Hope this helps and best of luck in solving your problem.
