I caught my leak right away, when dewinterizing.

I'd still have the warranty center look at it, if for nothing else to document the potential issue.

Is there anyway to have fan to help dry inside the wall? Water & wood, means rot! So it is something to be concerned about. The black wood means you have had a leak for a while & it got worse. By all means take it to a dealer while it is still under warranty.

Are you using a water pressure regulator? If not the incoming pressure may be excessive and causing the leak. If you are you could try filling the fresh water tank and running off the pump. I had a similar leak and the lower pressure from the pump stopped the leak until we could get it back to the dealer for repair.

Not using a regulator but the pressure is not very good here. Better then the pump but nothing impressive.

i don't know if u can run the air conditioner and circulate thru there, that would help.

a company came in after the hurricane and used a similar procedure. they put a tent over the house and ran external cooling units. apparently it worked, the guy that had it done did not get mold.

i'm not suggesting anything that radical but the idea is that the lower humidity air will dry it out faster. if ur in a low humidity area, the fan may work just as well. the humidity stays around 80+% here most of the time.
