Forester 3051 water leak

We are on the road and have what I think is fresh water leaking near one of the leveling jacks. Any ideas what it might be? We are on the road after picking it up so no time for dealer for a few more days!

West cactus After getting few items repaired after pickup from dealer we love the unit. One thing to watch is the screws on the outside wall bracket where the slide is, mine had the bottom five screws strip out ( another member on this forum had the same thing happen also)was easy fix just put in bigger screws Enjoy yours , we are!!!

Does the blue drain hose also require a drain cap? I filled the fresh water tank the last time I was camping and the water leaked out after I filled it? Had to get another site with city water hook up.

No the blue hose doesn't have a cap, if water is leaking out it, check inside the storage cabinet on right side of MH ( second from rear) there is a compartment inside this cabinet where the water pump, water filter and cold water drain shut-off is. Check that the drain is shut off ( its a little silver quarter turn valve)should be at 90 degrees to the blue pipe its in.

That blue hose is probably the over flow for your fresh water tank
