2018 R Pod 179 *leak issue*

Hello All--
I am a total newbie to the world of travel trailers. My wife and I live in Fort Worth, TX and found a deal around the Houston area (4 hours away) on a new 179. We drove down and purchased it. We love it and are excited to take it out to a local state park this weekend. That said, when I started testing/running all the systems I found a leak coming from the cut out where the low point drains come out of the underside of the camper. The leak only occurs when the water pump is turned on. There is no water inside the camper, it appears it is coming out where the T-connectors reside. This is a difficult spot to get to due to the foam insulation blown in and around that opening. Any advice on what to do here? See video below to get a better understanding of what I'm talking about.

Thanks, -JD
