I am getting water in the basement of my 1996 mountain air. I have check the water tank,it doesn't seem to be leaking,the back compartment were wet and they are not connected to the basement. I sprayed water from my garden hose all over the bottom and wheel wells and still no leaks, anyone had this happen on their mountain air
Thanks

How much water are you getting? Water will travel quite far from the leak. I would check your drain trap collars, pipe fittings to faucets, WD if you have one and the drain trap under your shower.
I'll short cut your question down to the Newmar forum maybe some one will have something on your problem.

Does it happen when the coach is just sitting there in dry weather, or when sitting there in the rain, or driving in the rain?

Our Essex had a lot of water in the basement. The factory found the electrical box for the awnings on the roof was not sealed and had allowed water to freely flow down the cable bundle into the basement.

In the compartment you have the water place a dollar bill around different locations of rubber seal and see if it is gripped tight all around. The seal may have dried out and you need a new one.

We had leaks in two basement compartments, and Newmar put in heavier duty seals.. That rectified the problem...
