Water leak in bathroom

We have a wet spot on the carpet in the corner to the left of the toilet in our 05 Seabreeze LX 8321. It is definitely water. We have dried it out with a fan, and it comes right back. We have also had some leakage in our passenger side rear compartment, that occurs whenever it rains, and we were in some heavy rain recently, but that is all dried out now. Just a little weird to have all the water issues in this one area. We can't seem to find a spot where it is coming from the wall or the toilet...it is just wet in one small area. Such a mystery. Just thought we'd ask before we start tearing things apart. Anyone else experience anything like this? Thanks!

I ahve been fighting a leak right in front of my passenger front seat at the top of the entry stairs. It is just one spot as well, just a round wet spot.

I worked on the outside seals and resealed things. Went underneath and resealed all around the stair box. Nothing obvious I can find.

We had some rain on Friday, spot was dry. Today with 3 days of no rain, the spot was wet and all we had last night was dense fog that caused some water to drip down from my roof gutter.

Strange things happen with water leaks. Somewhere, I am sure water is wicking to this spot but after a few weeks of trying to find it I am still sumped.

Good luck, hiope you find your leak quicker than I have been able to.

Could be your toilet fill valve leaking.

Yes, we think that may be it. We have spent days trying to figure this one out, but have finally found a slow drip at the connection. Thanks!

After taking that valve apart and resealing the threads several times I came to the conclusion that the only solution was to replace the valve - so I just glued it together with JB Weld. Problem fixed.

Bill and Nancy. We had the sam leak with our 05 Dolphin. It was the water line that feeds the flush valve, the first go around. Easilly fixed with JB Water weld. Regular JB Weld is good too, but a lot messier. The new leak discovered now is a few inches away from the toilet. I think it's a similar leak coming from where the spray hose connects under the back of the toilet. It'll keep till spring since it's winterized now and the pump stays off.

Probably the vacuum breaker, at least that what it was on my 99 Dolphin, cost about $45.00.
