Unhappy Water Leak?

2000 Monaco LaPalma. Slide out is out, hooked up to city water. Noticed dampness around the couch. Lots of dampness. So my question is, where do you think the water is coming from. Is there a water pipe in that area? Could it be a leak in the slide-out roof as it had rained the day before? Frustrating for sure. suggestions would be appreciated.

It's hard to say what the source of the dampness is.

It looks like the 34' La Palma's have a sofa just forward of the kitchen sink. There are pressure water lines there and the sink drains. Those are both known to leak. You should be able to easily access that area under the sink to check for leaks.

If there's no leakage in the under sink area, the caulking on slideouts is always a potential source.

One thing is certain, leaks don't "self heal". It would be good to locate and repair the source as soon as possible.

Good luck.

Take care,

Good morning Likohone; Ahhh, nothing like living here in the Northwest. We have not had much rain lately. I would say that if it did rain with the slide out, and now you have some water somewhere near your slide out, it is very possible that some water has made it's way inside. On my 01 Windsor, I have the galley slide. If for some reason the coach is tilted to the curb side, I can get some water in around the slide. If I can tilt the coach slightly to the street side, that is the side the slide is on, I will get nothing. So to me it just depends on certain circumstances that you could get some good old Northwest rain inside around the slide. I would check you slide topper as well as the seals around the slide. Hope this info helps.
