Water Leak

I'm hoping someone might have a suggestion. I seem to have a leak in the rear storage of my 2012 Navion iQ. The floor of the storage area gets wet when there's water in the fresh water tank. I don't see any place that indicates water coming out of the tank itself. The storage area is very narrow and I can't get my head very far in to see if it's a loose connection. I know I can take it to a dealer, but sure wish I could figure it out myself since taking it in will be very difficult logistically. If anyone has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it. Thanks.
Sandi

Has it always done it, or did it recently start? I have heard of screws being accidentally driven into tanks and pipes during manufacture causing leaks.

Most likely the water pump ,if you cut it off does the leak stop?

I think this started in the last couple months. The storage area doesn't seem to get wet when using city water. I can't tell where the water is coming from, i.e. the tank, a connection, or a pipe so it's almost impossible to tell if it still leaks when the pump is off. I did notice much more leakage the trip when I used the shower.

I checked around the water pump and could find no evidence of water anywhere around it.

Sounds like the leak is somewhere between the tank and water pump or between the water pump and the shower. I would turn the water pump on and the shower and start hunting for leaks. make certain you are not connected to city water. You should see the general area that it's leaking. You may have to remove the backer board or insulation, but I'll bet it's a connection in the line. You are under warranty so you may not want to go too far in removing fixed items to locate it. Good luck!

Here it is at the end of October. Did you find the source of your water leak? I'm curious, because I too have a similar leak in my '07 Winn. Aspect.

I had a leak and found out it came from a loose connector in the back of the shower. All the fittings are hand tight. Go underneath all your faucets and tighten all the fittings. The control knob on your shower has a access panel in back of it on the wall. Hand tight every one you can get to.

Turned out to be a crack on the side of the kitchen faucet. Water was draining under the sink back into the lower storage. At first I couldn't believe that was it, but on a trip to Yosemite after the fix, I used all the water sources and no problem.

Sorry, I'm trying to figure out where you're saying to go to tighten in the shower. Can you explain a little more for a newbie?
