FC23FB - 2015 Good news - our leak was related to a fitting on the vacuum break unit that is mounted on the outside wall under the sink. We have not seen a report of this being a potential leak area. However, we thought it might be related because that component does not see water all the time.

Hope you find your leak. Good Luck! Travel Safe. Pat

I also had a leak in that spot on my 27' fb and it was the in line water filter, I had it replaced twice and all the pex fittings changed under warranty and it still leaked. I took the filter out and put the hard line that came with the unit back in and switched to an external filter. Problem solved. Hope you find your issue!

If it happens again pull the filters out of the AC and see if they have wet spots. I had a similar problem and my AC was condensing on the inside of the housing which would drip down through the filters onto the floor.

We just spent a couple of days at Jackson Center to fix a problem that seemed to start a couple of years after we purchased our 2011 FC. That is, heat pump condensation leaking into the coach. It seemed to happen only during certain conditions. Airstream was aware of the issue and the repairs (so far) seem to be doing the trick.

By the way, we found the our first factory service stop to be a great experience.

We had the same issue with our 2014. That's why I suggested they check their filters.

We had a similar problem that showed up under our dinette, which is in the same location in our 30' FC as your galley. For us the issue was a faulty city water assembly. This is behind our bathroom sink, and when the system was pressurized by city water or the pump, water dripped down the interior wall onto the wheel well, and then to the floor. The first dealer (LA Airstream) who looked at it simply tried to tighten the connections, and told me it was fixed. I made the mistake of believing them and didn't keep an eye on it. Anyway, Airstream NW in Portland replaced the assembly and repaired the minor floor damage.

Good luck!
Ron

Water Leak Under Sink

After traveling on I-10 West through Baton Rouge (bumpy ride) I developed leak under sink of 2015 International Serenity. Source was loose connection between detachable faucet HEAD and flexible faucet HOSE. Water tracked back along hose to under sink area. Pipe thread tape and tightening the connection eliminated the problem. Simple to fix when you know where leak comes from. Good luck.

1st night my wife found water under the sink in our new 2016 30FB. Same thing the water filter was leaking. I removed it and put it back a few times and it still leaked. I eventually just removed it and put the original pipe fitting back.
Makes you a little paranoid as to think what about the fittings I can't see or get to.

Update: Found the Leak

We were hooked up to city water at the campground and both A/C zones were set to Automatic 68* (heat pump as it was chilly in the morning). We have a small throw rug in front of the kitchen sink galley, and each morning when we awoke the rug was very noticeably wet. The first morning, we just assumed that either the kids spilled a bottle of water, or it got wet from doing the nights dishes. So I let the rug dry out all day and placed it back in the same spot the second night. I checked the rug before I went to sleep that second night and it was definitely dry. The next morning it was wet again in the same exact spot. I check under the sink, under the counters, from the above A/C and everywhere I could think of and could not see where water originated from. It smelled like fresh water - no odor! It's still a mystery to me.
It was the fitting on the water pump that was leaking. On our second camping trip it started to pool water again. and this time I was able to find where it was coming from. On the 28' RQ the water pump is located under the convection/Microwave. Had to remove a panel to access the water pump, and saw the water dripping from the fitting. Tightened it up and seems to be the fix.

Water leak

Be glad you can access your water pump. On my 2015 FC 28, you have to remove the entire electrical panel or refrigerator. There is no other way to even touch the pump, let alone work on it.
