Hi Mander55, Welcome....Well, need more information...Is it raining? Does it smell?....is it grey water?...... did your incoming water hose break?
I think it comes in from the drivers side rear...Is the carpet wet in the rear?

Sorry I didn't include enough info.. The floor on the passenger side by the back bed is soaked. Our hose did start spraying all over so I shut water off. That's when we noticed the leaking. There was no smell. 1995 Damon hornet. Thanks for the help!

Sounds like your water line broke, look under bath sink if your water heater is there all the lines come thru there ..find the water lines then have some turn water on and look for leaks...got to be easy to see....The line runs from drivers rear corner to passenger rear corner then forward to bath and water heater..you will have to pull out all the drawers in the rear to see the line...Good luck

You said "your hose started spraying all over"

Was this the city water hose or another hose and did it spray inside or outside the motor home and did it spray on the side of the slide?

One problem I have seen, (this is not related to the hose) is that it seems my bedroom slide is lower than it was when it left the factory... Thus the top seal does no longer touch the top of the slide out.

Water runs in, runs down the side (when it rains) and... What you got is what I get.

I suspect the cure is new rollars (the old ones were plastic) but for now extended the seal.

Disconnect the shore hose -- turn on the water pump -- if the pump runs when the water is turned off then your leak is probably from an internal fitting or hole in an internal hose. If the water pump doesn't run then leak is probably associated with the shore hose connection.

I have seen it a couple of times before that someone may accidentally have the hose set to fill the water tanks and if the overflow valve isn't it may back up into the coach. Whatever the cause you need to get that thing as dry as possible as quickly as possible. I wish you the best of luck on this.
