1977 overlander water leak

Our first trip out in the overlander since purchase and seems all was going good when a water leak has been found in the rear,seems like the pbc piping is leaking on the bath room sink or tub drain ,OK now how do you get up in their to fix whatever is leaking ? Its hard to get both hands up in their? I'm sure someone has had this happen. thanks for any help.

Sarah.

More than likely the trailer sewer vent pipe cover gaskets are leaking. They only last 2 to 3 years.

They can easily be reached from a step ladder.

No.

Only rain or a wash job would cause water to bypass that gasket.

Water can only then come from within.

Possible the AC drain water, or a leaking water fitting.
