Leak on internal Surflo H20 Inlet

I noticed a small wet area underneath the rear on My"08 23 FB Safari last week. Then again this weekend.

Figured it was like the H2O heater (not the drain but where the flame is), so I investigated near the Furnace, which is under the kitchen sink. I removed the false front from under the sink cabinet and looked and felt all Pex fittings, nothing. Sure there was a small amount of H20 next to the internal wheel well cover. then just on top of the wheel cover. Darn it, my hand and arm can get thru all the Pex, ducts, gas lines and wires far enough to reach the female hose connection on the rear for the SurFlow inlet. Pex connection there is dry. So, I rip out, sorry - dismantle the back of the cabinet just to get to this fitting. Tighten it by hand, still leaking under pressure. Unscrewing the outter flange is no help since it is made up to the Pex. Once the male connector is off then I can pull the outter flange off. No cracks, nothing obvious. Put some teflon on, put it back together and all good under pressure.

Boy, Why so complicated? Having to rip the back of the cabinet off to get to the fitting?

At least the could have made an access panel.

Then my wife says, Why did it start leaking! DUH "Travel Trailer"

Also, the top drawer aould not come off the track due to the shelf being nailed er- stapled, too close for it to come up and out of the track.

Then there's the Aluminum shavings all under there, and even a loose screw glued under the linoleum flooring!
