Had a Water Leak This Weekend

We have a 16' Sportsmen Classic 16BH. Took it camping this weekend in South Texas - Goliad State Park. Friday night we weren't hooked up to the water because it was predicted to freeze.

I notice a puddle of water on the floor that looked like it may have come from the bathroom, but wasn't really sure. We had splashed some water when blowing the air out of the lines.

All day Saturday, still not hooked up to the water but with the water pump on, no problems. Saturday afternoon we hook up to the water since it didn't appear to freeze (at least not hard freeze) the night before.

About midnight I get up to go to the bathroom and step in a puddle of water. The water was coming from under the bathroom wall next to the bathtub. We turned the water off and mopped up best we could.

I find it interesting that the only time I saw puddles was at night when it was colder.

Anyway, we will be calling the dealer tomorrow and taking it in. We haven't had the TT 3 months yet, shouldn't have leaks.

Oh, and yes we had the cheapo pressure regulator and a filter cartridge hooked up to the water hose when on "city" water.

The TT is out of the driveway and in the shop. They asked when we needed it and I told them before the third week of December - we are driving to Atlanta for Christmas. We'll see - oh and they assure me it will be covered by warranty.

Having had similar issues in the past, I suspect ... and hope that it was just a weak/lose clamp on a hose.
