Angry New Member Question

My wife and I just purchased a 2013 Flying Cloud 25 and we our loving this new experience. However, on a recent trip, we were in a great deal of rain and discovered water on the floor behind the toilet and in the bedroom (we have the rear bedroom model). Does this indicate a leak I hot water system or maybe water coming down the Ben pipe in the bathroom? Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks a bunch

May be a warranty issue.

We had this happen to us. Two possibilities. The toilet had a bunch of water in it and it splashed out on bumpy roads. The other time we forgot to close the vent in the bathroom and we went through a major rain storm. The toilet had too much water because I was cleaning it and forgot to do a last flush.

If there was water behind the toilet it could be a simple accidental "slosh" from the toilet bowl as mentioned above... And once in a while when flushing the toilet (especially the first time using city water) the water pressure can cause the water to go beyond the edge of the bowl and dribble down the outside of the toilet...that's happened to us. Or it could be a leak in the plumbing to takes water to the toilet...which may only happen when flushing ... or it may be a slow drip/leak. I'd check those possibilities first.

The shower is next to the toilet, right? Did you use the shower? There could be a leak in the shower surround that's letting water out ... or a leak in the shower plumbing that's leaking into the bathroom, perhaps?

The bathroom fan/vent, as mentioned above is another place to check, especially if it wasn't closed all the way and it was raining while towing.

Unless you can determine where the water is coming from at the base of a wall or at the window frame my gut says it's not a shell leak or from a pipe or fitting in the wall.

Good luck! And last but not least...welcome to the Forums!
