Leaking from below

We recently purchased a 1985 30 R Avion. It leaks water from underneath. We have taken off the aluminum panels,emptied the tanks, turned off a/c, and haven't had rain, but still get puddles below. The drips are mainly in the center area, in the axle area. What should we be looking for- worn out connections, hoses? We can't figure where the water is coming from. Thanks for any help here. Kathleen

Can you please give more detail?

You should be aware of the water table in Rockport... so, the water is not 'rising' is it?

Is the water 'clear'? any debris? Can you place/tape paper towels up so you can start to isolate the source?

There are a few folks here from Rockport... knowledgeable about Avions, I bet they chime in soon...

Good luck!

That area contains the fresh & grey water tanks. One on each side of the center frame member. Drain each tank, allow time for things to dry out, then add water to each tank, one at a time. If the leak reappears you have the culprit. Odds are it is one of these. If the leak is there with both tanks empty, then focus on the water lines ( which should cause the pump to cycle).
