I had a problem with my funace, took it apart and got it fixed. I now have a leak in the floor, strange part is, it is far away from anything that looks like it would even use water. It is near the slideout in the kitchen. I cannot figure out how to expose any water lines, I fear they are between a the floor and a subfloor. How in the heck do I get in there without ripping things apart? I could use a diagram of some sort, or any idea at all of where to start. Thanks.

Howdy and Welcome to iRV2

Not knowing what rig you have, my first thought is do you have a outside shower on the slide out side that my feed water to or from the kitchen?

Yes, there is an outdoor shower. I have opened all of the obvious, even hard to get at access panels. It is dry under the shower, nothing is wet anywhere except that one spot about 3 feet from the wall. I'll give the outdoor shower another look and get back to you. Thanks for the suggestion.

Does you water pump run for an instant? If it holds pressure for 1 hour, you do not have a water line leak.
How far is this from your water heater? Sometimes the factory "forgets" to use butyl tape around the heater frame, allowing water to run down the RV side and seep inside.

As much as I can tell, the pump doesn't go off. I may have to leave it on at bedtime and see if it wakes me up. The water heater is far away from the leak, everything is far away from the leak! That is what puzzles me, there should be nothing there! Thanks for the advice, I'll go do some more checks in the area of the heater.
