Unable to find leak

You guys have been so good gere I was wondering if you could help me nail down another issue I have. I have a leak from some place and can't figure out where. It's in the bath room looks like maybe from unders the sink /show. Here is the deal this leaked before I ever used shower etc soprobably not plumbing. I first noticed it after hurricane Irene, the floor was wet and I thought it looked like sky light was not down tight enought with the high winds but it happended again. But not all times raining either seems to heppen after a rain but not all rains or even heavy ones. Stumped. I sealed the room penatrations with the white stuff but no good.

Could it be from the outside shower opening? The backside of my outside outside shower door and the shower hose is in my bathroom sink cabinet. When the wind/rain blows from the right direction it could come in around the door or the frame for the door. The solution would be to remove the screws holding the frame of the shower hose door and pull it out slightly, clean off the existing butyl tape, and put new butyl tape around it and reseat it.

Hi Captfrank

H'mm OK need some more info. What year/model camper do you have?

Any chance of posting some pics of the area you are talking about?

We are sort of blind to figuring out what you are referring to.

John

I had a leak at some add on fitting between the tank and the pump they had gumphed together a bunch of fittings and valves none were what they should have been and they fixed the leak by putting a shamies under the fitting! It soaked up the leak until it got so wet it could hold no more water. It was not a fun fix but it's all better now not much room in there.
