'67 Overlander - Mystery water leaking thru new vinyl flooring

Dear Forum,

We have a '67 Overlander with mystery water leaking floors!

Its not a lot of water but enough that we have to wipe off the section within the white outline on the attached picture.
- If you step hard on the flooring, you can get water to wick out
- Water is creeping up between the "waterproof" vinyl flooring
- Ive checked under the fridge and sink, 100% dry there
- No leaking flooring anywhere else in the Airstream
- The only changes Ive made since this started 2 days ago; inflated tires from 50Lbs to 65lbs; we have had 2 nights get below 30deg (but back to 50deg during the day); we have been running the heater, keeping it about 65deg-67 deg inside for last 2 days/nights
- The front water tank is empty and not used
- I should add, the flooring is "new-ish", this is the 3rd winter with the vinyl flooring and have not had this issue before

Any ideas where this water could be coming from?

thanks in advance!

Billy Chase

Hi Billy,
That's a real head scratcher... and only leads to more questions, such as:

1. Is the white "box" in the picture the fridge? I realize that you said it was dry underneath, but it may still be involved, especially if...

2. Has the fridge been recently turned on/running? How recently?

3. When is the last time it rained there?

4. Is there a chance that condensation from the walls ran down to the floor and seeped in that direction ?

Or maybe the mystery has been solved by now... :-)

Good Luck,
