Water Leak

Any idea where this would be coming from? Itís dripping down right at the front stabilizer under master bedroom, slow leak. This is where the city water hookup is. We had one freeze of 28 degrees about a week ago. Could the water hookup be damaged?

Sure looks like it. You should be able to access the back side thru that access panel. Might have to remove some panel of some sort. Should be square head screws.

You should be able to do this all from the outside. there should be 3 or 4 screws holding the hose bib to the trailer.



Take those screws out and gently pull on the assy to get it free of the traielr wall.


This will expose the connection between the hose connection part and the trailer plumbing pipe, probably PEX.


With this exposed attach the hose and turn on the water and check for leaks at the connection point.


Now this may be of several types of connections, but you should be able to fix it possibly by just tightening a threaded connection if it like mine.


Good Luck

That looks like it could be leaking at the hose connection so I would disconnect the hose and check the washer and then reconnect. Make sure it is connected tight. On my trailer I had to get pliers and tighten 1/4 turn more.

28 degrees is not a hard freeze IMHO and should not have broken any piping.
