Plumbing Leak

When filling our fresh water tank for the season, I could hear a loud spraying noise below the seam in the floor along the bathroom wall. 2005 Bambi 16'.
Water then came up thru the seam and got the floor wet. How do I access the below floor pipes? Thanks

Can you be prolific and specific about what you're doing, and how you're doing it?

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

AFAIK the plumbing is run above the floor in all Airstreams. You will have to look for removable access panels, in cabinets and storage compartments to find the source of the leak. In some cases you may have to remove something to get to it.

Thanks, I have identified the big leak in the area under the toilet wall along the back. I can't pin it down. I've raised the back panel under the bed and i've removed the toilet. Of course the leak is right between the two. I"d like to remove the back wall of the bathroom. Is that possible? Any other suggestions?

Paul,
I am not at all familiar with your year or size of trailer. Hopefully someone else is. I know how to get a 70's vintage apart.
