Thumbs up likohone/leak

I have a 2000 Monaco LaPalma, 34 feet. The carpet on the passenger side is very damp. Not in a rainstorm. is there a pipe running under the floor that could be leaking?

Don't think that would be the problem. Any pipe under the floor would have the subfloor between it and the carpet.

Water lines are typically under the floor and water doesn't flow up. If there is a sink or bath in a nearby cabinet, it could flow outward though, often quite some ways. Water "leaches" through carpet or pad easily and remains wet for days.

So what is on that side? Things that have water lines, windows, etc. A leak around a window may not show up as a wet carpet until days after a rain. It takes time to seep down through the wall and wet the edge of the carpet, and then spreads (leaches) further.
