Getting into the Walls for a plumbing leak

We have a water leak in the wall, close to the water heater. It started last time we took it out and it got the bed wet up close to the bathroom. We are trying to figure the best way to get in the wall to see what is leaking without destroying the wall panels. Any advice would be appreciated (so it can all go back well).

(Twin beds with center bathroom)

There is no copper tubing water lines within any of the shell walls.

Did it rain the last time you were out? If so, the sewer
vent pipe (covers) on top of the trailer can allow rain to
travel inside along the outside of the pipe wall. You may
want to start from the top and check all the caulking seals.
Go outside - on top - left and right of the leak and caulk anything
that is suspect.

It did not rain, so it is somewhere on the along the line.
