Micro Lite water leak

Hi all -
I have the 2014 Micro Lite 21 ft. I can't seem to find the source of leak into the storage compartment on the same side as the slide out. Anyone else have a problem with Micro Lites leaking? Any help with the solution would be appreciated!

Water pump? City water check valve, Filter housing/fittings? Water heater bypass valves.

Does it leak when on City Water or when using pump.

Sometimes you just have to run your hand along every water line until you find "wet".

I have a 21FBRS. My filter and pump are behind the false wall on the driver’s side on the front of the storage compartment, and the water heater is on the back side, behind another 2-screw piece of flex wall. You need to remove those “walls” to see the plumbing and check them for leaks.

I use "AIR" to find a Water leak! Most of the time you can Hear a Air leak and the added benefit of NO Water running everywhere! Youroo!!

Sorry but I meant a water leak from Rain. No water hookups involved.

It's a leak from Rain. No hookups were connected.

It could be a roof seam leaking down the wall.

Also have you checked the frame around the compartment door to make sure it's caulked completely and the caulking is not cracked?

It could also be leaking at the gutter rail. Check the caulking there closely.

And remember, it could be coming from a distance away.

I had a compartment on my old trailer that got wet when it rained. Wind would blow rain against side of trailer where it flowed in sheets down to the door. The door seal was leaking due to the lock and latch not holding the door tight in the frame. A little bending on the locking tabs fixed the issue. Also be sure to check the rubber seal for gaps. Close door on a dollar bill and see if it pulls out easy or not. Use the bill rather than plain paper as it won't tear as easy as plain paper.
