Tiffin 35 ft qba water leaks

Hi, Having just purchased a new 2011 allegro 35 ft qba,we are sad to see that the kitchen sink water actually dosen't make it to the gray water tank. Unfortunately it leaks out under the fridge area and through the floor to settle in the compartment that houses the fresh water tank.
It is frustrating as we are many hundred miles from a dealer. There is a possibility that we can have the repair carried out by a local rv center, but so far non has wanted to tackle the problem.Under the fridge is a furnace.The fix will it looks like ,the furnace will have to come out. In my frustration I am willing to tackle the job myself. Has anyone a few hints on removing the furnace and hopefully be able to get at the leaking joint,coupler,etc??
Thanks.........Dave

We purchased 2011 Allegro 34TGA Feb of this year, brand new from a great dealer in Reno Nevada. We live in Bend Oregon and have no Tiffin dealers here.
When we were going to hit the road, after long winter, we had issues with the waterheater. Long story won't go into.
Here is what we did and what I would strongly advise that you do...Call the Service Dept at Tiffin in Red Bay....they took my husbands call right away, he explained what he thought it was. They suggested we take it to a dealer, we explained no one close to us. We asked if it was ok to take it to our local Coach Masters here in Bend, and they said yes. Just have them send the bill to Tiffin. We did exactly that.
Prior to doing anything with your coach, please consider just picking up the phone, you will be so pleased. They may be able to lead you to a repair place where you are and that will fix your issues.
I would hesitate to do anything yourself at this point as it could void a warranty. Talk to Tiffin before you do anything... I am sure you will be glad you did. They will lead you in the right direction. We have been extremely impressed with their Customer Service, top notch.
Hope this info might help....
One more suggestion. Perhaps you can post your location and people reading these posts may lead you to a good and reputable repair place in your area that they know or have used.

Was this fixed OK? What caused the leak?

We'd be interested in what caused the leak also. We just bought a 2011 allegro open road and looking for stuff to watch out for..So far no major problems.
Hope you guys got it fixed.

Well,after 4 months of not using kitchen sink,we had repair done locally. Lasted one day.
Thought best to have done at Tiffin factory. Unfortunately it was a 4 month wait but figured it would be better carried out there. However two attempts at the repair there and results same.
When the kitchen slide is put out or in it pulls the hose from the kitchen sink out of the fitting at the gray tank. This was very depressing to say the least. After leaving the Red Bay facility we were dismayed to find the same problem .Tom Webber arranged repairs for us at North Trail. We were impressed with the speed and concern he had for our problem. The repair at North Trail in Ft Myers looks like it will hopefully last 5 or hopefully 10 more slide out operations.We were in touch with Bob Tiffin and honestly
it's like we heard, he returned our call in a matter of a few minutes. He arranged for us to return to Red Bay Jan 23rd. Hopefully the repair will be a different fix this time. The last 4 sure were not effective. We are full timing and hope to be using the slides every 2 or 3 days.....lots of usage. The test will be tough.
Thanks for all comments on our problem.
