2015 Classic - H2O Running Across Floor

Airstream was jacked up on the street side because of a tire that was leaking 1 lb air per day, tire store couldn't find a puncture or leak from air bubbles (that's another story). Luckily we were inside packing when it started raining, hard. A steady stream of water started running across the floor from under the frig. Pulled out the rear dinette drawer and saw that same stream running diagonally from the front street side of the seat toward the frig. When the rain stopped, went outside and opened the outside shower door, 4 or 5 cups of water poured out. The door either leaked at the top or the shower faucet leaked, or both. The shower compartment filled up to the point that water started running into the Airstream through the water fittings, into the area under the dinette seat. To solve the problem I cut a small drain channel, less then 1/8 inch wide, in the center of the bottom of the gasket. Also tried to adjust the door and smeared silicon on the compartment mounting screws. Something else to watch for. The outside shower knobs turn very easily. Bouncing down the road could cause the shower hose of nozzle to knock against the faucet handles, opening them just enough to start a leak that would fill the compartment and leak under the dinette seat.

Keep that water pump off when on the road. I've also pushed the shower head button the off position when not in use. Hope that helps.

Amen!!!! I flooded a trailer once not turning off the water pump. I had added bleach to the fresh water to sanitize and it sanitized the whole floor, and the insulation. Smelled real good though.
