Water keeps appearing on bedroom carpet

I recently purchased a 1994 Rexhall itís an F-53 chassis. I keep having water appear next to the bed on the carpet. Iíve cleaned it up about three times just today. I looked under the bed near the fresh water tank but canít find anywhere that the water could be coming from. I also donít have any slides and I havenít ran the ac in a few days. Iíve been using the front ac unit. I also looked under the rv and couldnít locate any pipes and it doesnít appear to be wet anywhere. My outside shower was leaking this morning but I believe I fixed that. Any ideas on where the water could be coming from?

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Are your A/C units ducted? Our MH has a common duct from the front all the way back to the bedroom The only thing I can think of is condensation from the A/C supply vent. If it's that I would think you would be seeing some from the other vents too.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Water can travel along ways and in ways you would never imagine. Not knowing your layout what is in the area? Shower, leaking from curtain or door? Shower water lines are leaking in the wall or below the shower? Lavatory, leaking on a water connection or drain. Water connection behind toilet? Kitchen sink water lines or drain.

Shut the water off to unit, if it goes away it is pressurized leak. Just some thoughts.

Water can travel under tile and get to carpet, it can work itís way under walls. It tricky and in my plumbing world expensive.

Thank you Iíll check those areas to see if thereís any sign of a leak and Iíll shut the water off and check that as well. I canít find any diagrams on the piping layout Iím not sure if the pipes are in the wall or if they run under the floors. The water is appearing between the bed in the bedroom and bathroom wall but not along the walls itís just in the center of the two.

Sorry your first post is for a problem,


Turn off the city water supply, turn on 12V water pump, DO NOT USE ANY WATER DURING THIS TEST! Leave pump turned on for 30 minutes, if it cycles/turns on momentarily then stops, you have a water leak somewhere. Turn off water pump, begin wiping one water line at a time with a paper towel until you have a wet paper towel. Turn on water pump again with a new paper towel under where you got the first towel wet. Plastic water lines are easily spliced.

Closest above floor water line. Do you have washing machine? Toilet line? I pulled my WM to test everything .After same thing happened must have been stupid .25 rubber washers they were dust. Shopvac if soaked or stomp down towels ,get some fans on it turn on AC it's a dehumidifier.

Check your roof seams, especially between the roof and rear cap. Leaks will go down inside the wall and come out on the floor. Donít ask me how I know...

Where's your 12V water pump located? In my MH, it's under the bed, and one of the connections was leaky, which prompted wet spots by the bed, similar to what you are describing.

It was a slow leak, so it was a tricky to diagnose. But I found it and tight the connection, and the wet spot was gone.

Thank you I think I figured it out sorry for the late response I turned of the city water like you said then I thought about the fresh water tank. I hooked the Motorhome up to everything then drove back to Louisiana from Alabama. When we came back the next day it was dry. I decided to put water in the fresh water tank and it was shortly after that the water started apearing. After turning off the city water it hasnít stopped yet. Iíll drain the fresh water tank when I get off tonight and Iíll see if that fixes the issue. The pipe that runs under the floor from under my bed is connected to the fresh water tank also

My water pump is in the same location Iím thinking the leak is coming from the pipe that runs under the floor near the edge of the bed from the fresh water tank. I didnít start having the issue until I put water in that tank and i just realized that. I want to thank you for your response and Iíll update everyone once I find out if thatís what it was. Thank you and everyone else for the help also
