Mystery water

On a trip from California to Utah, 3rd day in felt the bedroom carpet to be very cold, but in fact was damp. Took the bed off of the fresh box and pump, and was very wet. I thought it was possibly the pump from when we were using it down the road, but no leak. It is wettest under the pump, connected to city water and used pump and cannot feel any water leaking. Any suggestions. Click image for larger version

Maybe one of the sharkbite fittings is leaking unless you have a cracked water line somewhere !! :-(

Check where the filter bowl connects to the body.

Checked the filter, it's tight. Realized the water pressure is crazy high, even with the regulator on. I'm hoping maybe it the pressure was causing the water to leak thru the threads?? All I can think of because I have not found any water leaks. Even put food coloring in the water to find leaks and nothing.

Try turning off the water at the campground faucet, turn off all faucets inside the coach, and turn on the pump. If there's a leak anywhere downstream of the pump, the pump should kick on just as it does when you turn on a faucet. If the pump doesn't come on (turn on a faucet first just so you know it's working), then you can rule out a leak anywhere downstream of the pump and at least narrow the search. Is there room to slide a plate under the pump to see if anything drips from the pump onto the plate?

I see screwdriver clamps (2) on the line between the pump and tank. is that pex line or braided hose? if braided hose, the clamps should be nearer the end of the hose past the barb section of the fitting. if the clamps are on pex line that simply wont work. those are flair-it fittings not sharkbite from what I see and are fairly trouble free.

edit: ahhh, those are threaded sections on those fittings. the clamps are probably positioned properly...
