water seepage

I have a 2004 safari purchased in mid november 2011. middle of december i noticed water seeping from under the shower into the bedroom on the driver's side about were the black water hook up is. nothing seem's to exacerbate the seeping, we are using a hairdryer to keep the spot dry. never is more then a cubic foot of wet floor. The only time there was no seeping was when my hose was frozen so I was using no fresh incoming water for a week. the previous owner never noticed the problem and has been the only owner prior to myself. The coach has been taken to an airstream dealer in phoenix, they ran the entire system with water while having a scope in the plumbing to look for leaks, nothing found. their thought was weather related and it's leaking from the outside...i live in flagstaff, az and it is beautiful and clear skies 90 % of the time, but the seeping never stops! Anyone have any advice or information? Thanks

Might the shower drain be leaking? Is the drain water tank empty? Does it leak with no city water connected?

If the forum has all the information, good people here will tell you exactly where the water is coming from.

The fitting on the back of the shower faucet can weep, causing water to run out from between the wall and the shower onto the floor.

Terry may have whacked the rivet again...thats exactly where ours was leaking. When we got it home from the dealer I found the cold water supply hose,(plastic), was too short and cross-threaded on the manifold. A metal faucet supply hose from HD worked as a replacement.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
