2007 28ft safari fresh water leak help

Hello again, so I have a mystery fresh water leak coming from the right side near the front of the wheel well. its dripping out of the frame. I have inspected visually and physically all the lines in the cabin and cannot find a leak. the floor is dry the walls show no sign of a water leaking down. I just replaced the water pump and added a tank heating pad for winter conditions, so I dropped the fresh water tank and re-connected all the lines. I'm very familiar with them now and there is no leakage from the tank or direct lines attached to it additionally it also sits below the frame and further under the body so it cant be that.

My questions is this. Are there any water lines that run through the frame under the plywood aside from the 2 bathroom lines? anyone have any thoughts?

I had the same problem and it ended up being a small crack in my city water connection on the backside. Ended up replacing it and no more problems

OMG that's it! 5 min and problem is solved. Opened it up found some water soaked insulation that leads right to the frame where it travels down the wheel well. Ive suspected this to be faulty previously as it only leaked while city water was hooked up. I'm guessing the new water pump has more pressure so it leaks all the time now.

thank you for replying saved me hours of searching.

I have the same problem on a 25' 2005 safari. It leaks when connected to both city water and the fresh water tank? Think it is the same solution?

Sounds like it. Only take a few minutes to remove the city water inlet and see if its leaking. I did some research and this a very common issue, wish shurflo could get it right!

Thanks Jack, what will I see when I remove the city water thingy? For example is there sufficient slop in the hose to actually remove and do an inspection? Am fairly handy just trying to understand what I am about to do.
