Leak Behind Shower from Hose.

I found a leak yesterday behind the the shower where the hose attaches through the shower wall. It only happens when the the shower main valve is on and the the shower head valve is closed. I have a 2018 22 sport.
Itís easily accessed. Iím sure under warranty but donít want to wait for ever to get it fixed by dealer. Would you do it yourself or take to dealer? I think I could come up with a better solution. See pics! Click image for larger version

I think you just answered your own question. Most dealers are always behind. Long wait, distance to dealer etc. Take a look yourself first.



Just my 2 cents. Dave

Welcome Aboard!! 👍

We noticed the same leak the first time we turned the shower on,(at home when I did a real PDI)👎,...our supply line was too short...say hello to Home Depot. I used a flexible supply line, ie sink, instead of the pex that they couldn't cut to the proper length.

From your photo it appears a quality install, but like the work/sealing on the roof, it's OOSOOM, never to be seen again🥴

in our 2006 25FB, I discovered a pinhole leak in the PEX in just that area last year. It gave me a good excuse to buy crimpers. It is a slightly awkward area to work in, but a satisfying do it yourself plumbing job.



If your dealer doesn't take care of, we'll support you here!

We had a similar issue that was fixed by our dealer the morning after we took delivery. (We spent our first night at the dealer, Pete's RV in Vermont.) It seems that the wood shim was a little too thick, so not enough pipe threads were tightened to prevent leakage. Their solution was to make a thinner shim so they could get enough pipe thread twists to prevent leakage.

If I read your post correct it is at the wall joint not the PEX fitting??..... if pex I prefer the solid metal rings ....if wall is the screw fitting just loose??

I would do it ...first clean off excess caulk and determine is it the pet joint or screw joint that the actual water is leaking from ....then you can figure for sure what's to do.

FWIW, I had a similar situation at my FW connection. Mid trip once i noticed water pouring out if the belly pan under the fw/bw connection. After some investigation, it turns out (so to speak) that the connection was loose...almost a whole turn on the male thumb connector. The BW was a bit loose too but not enough to leak. Now i check all accessible connections at the start of each trip.
