Water Leak

On the road.
Have a water leak behind the water panel. Must be up top somewhere. Can't reach the clamps from the compartment.
Anyone had this problem? Are the lines assessable from the inside somehow?
Not had a freeze issue.

I have an access panel in the bedroom wardrobe that once removed, allows me access to the hoses and plumbing to the washing machine. I had a leak there that sprung all the way up the wall and across to the other side of the wall beneath the wardrobe. It also leaked out onto the entire floor of the main cabin area. I can also access this area from underneath my slide, surprisingly enough.

I'm not exactly sure what happened in your unit but please feel free to share more details. I hope you were able to address it quickly and avoid any damage. I'm so sorry you had this happen to you.

Thanks
33.1 does not have a w/d so our piping is different from yours.
Got an appointment with our dealer in two days so hopefully will be resolved.

a possibility is a leaky water pump. Ours is on the opposite side of the water panel. Peck hosings and fittings are usually pretty good in cold weather....

Just a thought ... the bathroom plumbing (sink) is above the termination bay -

Did you by chance check that area from inside the coach?

I presume you are speaking of the water panel with the water selector valve and the adjacent valve for the water heater bypass. I had a leak in the connector line between the the two valves(the selector switches). Using a mirror and flashlight I was able to determine the leak was coming from the rear of the selector switches. It is so crowded that I was not able to ID the exact location....so I disassembled the panel from the front, removing the switches and disconnecting one(as I recall) water line with a hose type fitting to pull the panel out about six inches so I could see what was up. I then found the line that connects the two valves was loose---and with a quarter twist the leak was repaired.

My water pump also leaked from the connection btwn the impeller case and motor housing.....allowing water to seep under the water tank into the area of the water panel on the other side of the coach. I replaced the pump with a shurflow, added a plug valve between the tank and pump, and moved the pump outboard so I could see it and get to it in the future. I had an aluminum cover made to protect it from things in the storage space that might bang it while underway.

i have a 2013 palazzo, if your talking about the water lines in back of the panel where the the fill valve and the water heater valve is, then take off that panel and look at the lines connected to the plastic valves, my water lines were a little short putting pressure on the fittings, and broke the valve coupling, pull off those pointer handles, then take off that plate, and see what you got going on.

During my PDI we found a leak from behind that panel. I did not see what they did to fix it but it took about an hour.

My Palazzo developed a water leak on the bottom of the pump on the way BACK from warranty repairs in Elkhart. Was only using fresh water tank, no city fixtures, so not sure why it decided to fail.

Can't decide if I want to replace it with a ShurFlo or call in for a replacement.

Mine was leaking when I pulled into Elkhart. They replaced it and it has been fine ever since. I know some people carry a spare with them. If it fails again I will probably get the ShurFlo, but while it is covered under warranty I will let them replace it.

After replacing the factory plastic fittings with brass and a few lines (was told they froze ?) the leaking has stopped.
Not an easy area to work in.

Nice to read it was fixed, I hope I don't have to look forward to doing that.
