2014 23D water leak

I appear to have a water leak on the Roadside back panel just behind the drain valves when connected to City Water only. There is a continual dripping that I haven't been ables to locate. I have looked in every access point inside the trailer (under bathroom sink console - under closet panel where water pump is located - under metal cover next to toilet) and have found nothing. I have been able to see and feel the city water inlet connection and it doesn't appear to be dripping. Any suggestions?

Check the low-point drain piping inside the rear storage compartment. Other than that, I'm thinking it might be your city water inlet, even though you think it isn't. Those things are a common failure, and they can drip between the outside and inside aluminum skins. That's 'bout all I've got.

Thanks
I’ll check that drain piping.
I’ve also ordered a new inlet / reducer fitting.

We had a similar leak recently, while system under pressure, both from the pump, or city water when connected. Water exiting down the rear of the black tank neck (clean water). Ended up a split L-connector on the back side of the shower valve......$2 part, but the shower panels had to be removed to access the part...I wonít shock you with the labor charge.

Sounds like your city water fill inlet fitting is leaking between the body halves. This is usually caused by freezing. Some claim success by tightening the screws (3 IIRCC). Since you have to disassemble that part of the plumbing anyway, I just by a new one and R&R the whole fitting.

I have replaced the city water inlet and tested the old unit, it does have a small leak in the reducer section. Iíll no for sure on my next trip (next week) if this was the problem. Fingers crossed
Thanks all.
