Water leak

We have a 2020 Tiffin Wayfarer QW. We have water leaking from the bathroom and the carpet near the theater seating was soaked. It was not raining. I checked the water fittings behind the toilet and it was dry. I want to look under the toilet but cannot figure out what attaches the panel. The water pipes under the sink do not appear to be leaking. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks

Maybe you've already done this but I thought I'd mention it for any lurkers reading your thread. To keep the amount of leaked water as small as possible, you can disconnect city water from the RV and just use your onboard water tank and pump. Switch off the pump and crack open a faucet to relieve pressure between water uses so the leak stays small.

Good luck. Could you take some pictures of the area and post them? That might help visualize the situation. Also, many RV manufacturers provide diagrams of the plumbing, pipe runs, fittings, and connections so you can track leaks to likely areas.

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

I don't think there would be any connections under the toilet. That should be a straight piece of tubing. What about the connections to the shower or tub?

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Not familiar with your rig, but I will tell you that water sometimes travels a long distance from it's source to the discovery point.

You have a fresh water leak most likely in a wall or hidden in a cabinet. I hope it's fresh water. Is the bathroom nearby? Sometimes the leak will only appear when one faucet is running. Lot's or variables.

You might have the thread moved to the Tiffin forum here listed under owners forums.

Good luck and happy hunting!

It has been 3 days so you may have found the problem, but I thought that I'd offer some suggestions even so. Finding a leak in water fitting can be difficult if it only happens when in use so something that I have done is to warp every fitting in the area with paper towels as they will show the result of being wet, even if they dry before you see the leak area. Your water lines probably are routed through cabinets or storage spaces. Trace the water lines and put paper in every location that would possible have a leak.

Let us know if you have made any progress.
