Motorhome Water Leak:

On a trip last week I noticed water dripping from the rear of the right rear wheel well. The flow increased until we only turned on water pressure when we needed to use water of cleaning or cooking. Now we are home and I need to find and fix the source of the leak.

Looking at the diagram it appears it may be where the main water line to the kitchen sink is connected to the shower. My only problem is how to get to the pipe to repair it.

Must I pull out the shower? I really hope not as it looks like quite a job.

Fortunately no part of the floor is wet either in the kitchen or clothes closet.

For some reason this did not show up in new posts and only in the Portal. Lets see if it does now.

shower leak

Hi! Before I decided to pull out the shower stall cut an access hole in the closet and check the shower valve. There should be a T or Y fitting at that point.and if you pinpoint the leak you can pull the new line thru using the old pipe as a fish line. Although I have not had the problem in the mh I have found many a house valves leak. Pete

Thanks. That's a good idea and I will definitely try that.

Cooperhawk,
There should be a false wall in the closet. It starts about half way down the wall between the closet and shower. It will come off with a few screws. Inside this area is the back-side of the shower faucet, and associated plumbing. If you pull the drawers out from under the microwave, you will have access to the plumbing forward of the shower.
Let us know what you find.
Rob

Also remove the drawer below stove top, can see lots from there, and if you remove microwave, and can squeeze back in there, lots to see, maybe see leak location, but would be tough to repair.

but leak stops when you turn water on in other locations?
maybe supply from pump?
