1997 Sunline Solaris T-2553 - Water Leak

I was out for the 1st time this year with the camper and noticed a wet spot on the carpet floor in front of the master bed between the bathroom and the foot of the bed. I thought it was a spill but it came back after we soaked it up. I got it home and pulled up the carpet and dried everything out. I plan to put water back into the plumbing with the carpet up and try to see the origin of the leak.

I do not see any pipes near where the water was on the carpet. The carpet under the bed at the pump is dry. The 1st picture shows the pump and plumbing under the bed... the 2nd picture shows the spot location - where the screw driver is on the floor...that is where the water was collected in about an 10" circle.

The hot and cold water lines which feed the front of the camper are off to the left of the bed frame and go under the floor boards to the bathroom and forward. The linoleum under the carpet pad where the water collected is not cracked so I do not see how or why the water collected at that particular spot on the floor.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Very right corner of the pic, on the wall, there's an access panel. Should be four screws holding it. Pull those off and it should reveal the back of the shower faucet. Check to make sure those water lines are tight to the faucet and that the connections aren't cracked. Then, water test it. It could be the faucet leaking internally- they do that a lot. It could also be the shower pan or drain leaking. You should be able to see a lot from pulling that access panel off.

Water leak

That access panel is for the heating duct and access to the shower drain. I also get a small amount of water on the floor in that corner, where the lanolium meets the carpet. I got mine figured to just water from the shower overflowing the shower door drip rail and onto the floor. Hope this helps you.

Look up. Directly above wet spot on floor is your ceiling vent. Make sure it's not leaking. Condensate water run off from ac unit or rain water may be leaking in
