Water seeping under cabinet near refrigerator

I have a 2009 27FB Classic and a small amount of water keeps seeping from under cabinet next to refrigerator. I checked the refrigerator condensation drain and it seems to be working. I can't find any plumbing leaks although water does drip under the trailer from the water connection box. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Can you give more details? For example: do you live in it full time, does it leak when it rains only, are you using water from you water tank or from an external hose, what plumbing is in the area of the water leak? Etc.....

I am sure this can be figured out with enough heads working on it.

Disconnect from city water, have water in the fresh water tank and turn on the pump. Don't use any of the sinks or shower overnight (go to bed with the pump on) and see if it cycles on. If so then there may be a leak in a connection behind the wall or cabinets.

AC running is a good one. Does the drain line for the AC drip from the wheel well when on?

On my '08 27FB, the floor of the closet can be lifted out after removing several screws. Doing so will give you access to the backside of the water fill, water pump, several of the hand tightened water connections and a visual of what might be going on under the fridge. You can also see under the shower and the area that opens into the water connection box you mentioned to maybe determine if the source of the dripping water is above the floor or down in that box.

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

Silvia,

A photo would help a lot.

The place where the water is showing up may not be anywhere near the source.

Our leak showed outside behind the streetside rear wheel, 5 feet from the source. Cracked cross-threaded fitting under bathroom sink.

I have had a similar problem with my 2010 Sport. Mine has occurred while in storage after rains. Dealer in Los Banos has tried to repair by fashioning a metal dam and recaulking behind the refer but water has again entered the passenger area from under the refer after the recent rains. Another trip to Los Banos Tuesday to drop it off.

Check your stove vent - they cut my openning in the aluminum too large - there was barely a 1/8" of overlap.

Smile Water Seeping Under Cabinet - '09 27' Classic

Found it! One hose connection to the water pump was slightly loose. I tightened the hose connection and no more leak. I had already looked at the water pump connections but this time I placed my fingers on the underside of the connection and it was wet. Thanks to everyone who responded, I am very grateful for the response I received to my problem. This is a great community. Dave
