Does this resemble a pipe burst?

I’m having a heck of a time trying to figure out where this leak was coming from under the carpet of my 34’ forest river windsong. I seen some evidence of very minimal water coming in from the slide gasket if running a hose on it for an hour straight but for it to extend this far while the subfloor is basically dry next to the wall itself just doesn’t seem all that logical to me.. not after finding this funky looking outlet replacement in the wall that is behind the toilet (that was hidden until now with stick on wallpaper from Amazon) as well the weird cut out near the pipes that go up inside said wall..


I have photos.. might not let me post them all at once as it usually doesn’t but I’ll try.

Just seems a bit odd to me that water didn’t run further down toward the fridge and that there is a hole in the subfloor where a pipe comes out of the floor up inside the wall where water could have went instead as shown in the photo with my hand in it

Doesn't look like burst pipe to me. Is there plumbing in the wall that the door is attached to. looks like the area under the door has been wet for a while. Would guess slow leak in the wall or coming down from roof.

Can you see a broken pipe? If you are unhooked from shore water and turn your water pump on does it cycle? If it was/is a ruptured line and you turn the pump on it would cycle very fast.


It does not take much for the pump to cycle. I had a pin hole tank in my water heater located in the basement. Pump started to cycle, at first very slow, then got faster. But it was a very small leak.

There is plumbing going up vertically inside this wall.. I can't tell how far it goes up or why it even goes up there.. Do RV manufacturers typically run plumbing through the roof to go from one side to the other side of an RV? Seems awfully strange to me to even think they would but god knows.

In this black circled area I'm attaching now this is the same plumbing shown in my previous post (located under the bathroom sink vanity on the right-side wall behind the toilet -- very flimsy wall.. The most flimsy wall in the entire MH)

I cannot physically see a broken pipe nope. I can tell you that there was a 1/4th of a tank of fresh water in my tank that I ran through the bathroom sink and toilet last night and couldn't see any new water on the subfloor.. I turned my pump on at the time but I wasn't really sure how fast a pump should cycle so i didn't think anything of it. Do I need to have some water in my fresh tank before I turn my pump on to see how fast it cycles? I used what was left in the tank last night, i can fill it up again though if need-be

Also, does a water pump cycle even when the water pump switch is disabled? Because I have been hearing something coming from the water pump area every so often for a few minutes at a time.. I thought it was something else though because the pump switch was off.

The plumbing in the wall is a vent, look on the roof above there for a good seal around the opening.



Have you checked the supply line for the toilet, internally and the seal for leaks? The leak looks like it's centered around it, at least that's a place to start.

I have tried running water through the toilet and feeling what I could without any success of finding a leak. I will check again
