all mine were above the floor dont know if that was right someone worked on mine a bit before i bought it. I have all mine out remolding my camper and i have decided that mine are going to stay above so if i need to make a repair it will be easy to get to. Im just going to run them along the wall and build a box around them from the couch to the cabinets to keep them hid

Water lines are normally above the floor in the spaces that stay warm when you have the furnace running. Plus they are much easier to access. No removing belly pan to gain access.

The original water lines in our '66 Safari were copper and above the floor. PO had let them freeze, so we cut them out and replaced with PEX--also above the floor. If yours are PVC, they must have been replaced sometime in the trailer's history.
