Leak in black water flange

We are on the road in first trip with our upgrade to 19' FC. I noticed a drip in the flange that connects the black water pipe to the underbelly. We're still under warranty but t far from airstream dealer. Looking for advice, seems I have several options:
  • Take it to SOB service center (would have to pay for repair)
  • Catch the drips and empty regularly until we get to airstream dealer
  • Try to caulk it myself

Any advice is welcome.

The leak is probably gonna be at the clamp joint behind the belly pan. Caulk won't fix it. I would just use a catch pan and let a dealer fix it.

Do not caulk until you know for sure where the water is coming from. It may be a leak above the belly pan and just exiting at that point.

The pan may need to be dropped to determine where the water is coming from.

Does it appear that the drain hit the ground? Our 22fb is close to the ground also.

Mine leaked but it was leaking from the rubber flange inside the underbelly. All they had to do was drop the underbelly and tighter the clamp holding the rubber flange to the holding tank. The airstream dealer did it while waited. Your problem seems minor.hope I'm correct.

Thanks all for replies. I was able to determine its a fresh water leak. If I disconnect the city water input, the drips stop. Hopefully it will be an easy fix once I get to a dealer.
