So I have a Leak...

Last week while camping, I noticed a small leak coming from one of my freshwater hoses that routes out to the trailer on the street side over to the curb side. My rig is a 2019 FC 27 FBQ. The water is coming out of the rearward of two hoses, and starts anytime pressure is on the water system, whether water tank or city water. It drips at a very slow rate, maybe a drop a minute. I've looked at the area around the water pump on the inside, and as far as I can see with that access, everything is dry. I cannot determine from the provided fresh water diagram for a 27 what the source for this hose is. Any Ideas? Leaks don't fix themselves, but I'm at a loss as to how to find access to where this hose comes from. Thanks in advance.

That looks like one of the propane lines. Perhaps the water is just finding it's way to where that propane line enters the trailer?

Not a propane line...it's a water hose, one of two that cross the trailer underneath.

Photo looks like the propane hose. Water lines are all PEX in newer trailers.

According to the owners manual diagram, there are two hoses (not PEX) that cross the trailer underneath. Pretty sure these are not propane. Otherwise, why would there be a leak?

Does not look like a pressurized water line. All water supply lines are PEX and not routed externally.

Maybe a black tank flush hose connection?!

Iím guessing you have already tried to follow them to where they connect to something, but thatís what I would do first.

I have had small leaks behind the toilet and under the sink that were simply connectors that had worked themselves slightly loose.

Good luck.

I don't know where that goes... looks like a rubber hose going into the trailer, though the rubber 'gasket' screwed to the pan. Take a screwdriver and see if you can scratch a small spot.. to see if it is copper or plastic line. Remove the 'gasket' and look inside... post a picture of your investigation..

Propane lines run under the trailer so that if you get a propane leak on the supply lines, since propane is heavier than air, you have minimal chance of it getting inside the AS.

That line appears to be a LP line because the fitting looks like what you usually see on one... but, AS does make changes...
