Water Leak on Fleetwood Discovery 40G

Hello Everyone, I'm looking for some help on how to isolate and fix my leak. It's at the T-intersection between the bunkhouse and the bathroom wall and the base of the bedroom platform. See attached picture. I'm pretty sure it is a cold water feed line that runs under the bedroom platform but can't find an access panel. So I need help there. If you have any ideas, please let us know. Thanks! Steve. Click image for larger version

The leak needs to be repaired or you face much worse damage or mold. If you have to cut open a wall to access the waterline, I wouldn't hesitate. You can always hang a picture or install a mirror over the wall opening. You might consult Fleetwood and see what they suggest.

A leak in that area could be coming from your air conditioner, and running down the inside of the wall. If that's the case, your a/c could need tightening down, or perhaps a new gasket.


The only water pipes in that area are the hot water tank supply and return, and they run halfway between where the bed frame is, and the bedroom floor stepdown. I'm not sure where you would access them from, though.

Appreciate your feedback. I think I have isolated it to the cold water line. Access is my main issue. Thanks.

Did you pull the peg board off where the tools are located. I had a leak on the flush line and had access there.
