Can't gain access to leaking water line

02 Bounder is leaking from a cold water line that runs underneath the floor from the left side to the right side of the coach. It's a hard plastic hose about 1/2" diameter. I can't gain access to the leak without tearing out the carpet and cutting the floor and I definitely don't want to do that! Any tips?

It appears that the water runs from the 12v pump to the three way diverter valve, and then from the diverter valve, the water goes to the rest of the coach. Is that correct?

Any chance you can cut the line and abandon that run, then run a new line in an area that you can access.

If the line is just laying there with just the ends attached, you could disconnect the ends and pull rope through and then a new line, always have enough rope to make continuous connections in case the rope slips off.

Good luck.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Pull the strainer side of the pump off and see if it is stopped up. Friend has a Bounder and called me with water running out a compartment while hooked up to shore water. I pulled the strainer of and it was full of green algae - no water could get through. We cleaned the screen and scrubbed the algea off. Put it back together and there was no more leak. I have no idea why or how it is plumbed but apparently the valve/pump was allowing water into the tank and running it over somehow.
