Water leak

I have a an ' 02 Damon Intruder and have been concerned with a drip that appears to be originating from behind the enclosed area in the water/sewer bay. It drains from the holding tank but I am unsure of how to go about getting to the site of the problem. If I unscrew all the many screws holding the cover on will I actually be able to get to the problem or will I have to undo all the water connections too? I am not a plumber!

Water leak

Well I certainly did try to send a photo but albeit without success. Sorry! Maybe someone can tell me how to accomplish this seemingly easy task!

Ok, I did have a leak in that are that was a fitting thru the floor. But first I would try to determine the leak. Try to wrap paper towels around fittings and lay in areas to try to determine the drip (reaching around as far as you can behidthe board). Also is the outside shower removed? No leak from those spigots in the rear. And yes with the care the Board shown can be removed. I would try to determine the leak before removing anything.

I have a leak in the same area on my travel supreme. The rv tech had a video monitor, a long tube with a monitor on the end, he used to go in that area and determine it was the shower drain fitting. Neat tool he bought at harbor freight for around $80. Suppose to be fixing it today.

A cheap usb snake camera plugged into a laptop will also work. Something like this:

Water leak

Just want to bring all you helpful souls up to date on my water leak issue. A knowledgeable friend offered me help and I was more than happy to agree! He unscrewed what seemed like 27 screws from that cover I sent the pic of, he popped out the low point drain gaskets and succeeded in getting the cover just far enough away to be able to locate the offending leak! It was coming from a loose connection on the hot water line. He tightened it up, put the gaskets back on, replaced all the screws and all is well! Not such a scary endeavor after all!
