Help solve a water mystery - please.

We have a 290 RLT Crusader. Last April we discovered water damage on the right side of the lower kitchen cabinet. There was indication of water damage on the underside of the kitchen counter. There was also damage along the bottom of the rounded wall and along the bottom of the bottom step to the bedroom. Our dealer resealed the kitchen sink and thought there was also water leaking from the top of the shower when showering and added caulking around the top of the shower. All areas were repaired and replaced under warranty by Prime Time. This fall in preparation for a trip south we took the rig to the dealership. Once again they found water damage on the right side of the lower kitchen cabinet. They checked for a water leak by pressurizing the system and also checked all areas for possible leaks. NOTHING. We have been vigilant about drying off the kitchen counter since the first experience. At no time have we found water on the floor in any of these areas.The dealership is at a lose as to what to try next. Prime Time is getting in touch with the dealership to hopefully add some tech support. In the meantime I was wondering if any owners have had similar issues and found the source. Both Prime Time and our dealership are anxious to solve this problem. Thanks for any help.

Not sure if this is the same issue, but we have the 298 bhd and had water coming in through a poorly sealed stove vent, on the very first day we had the unit. Water all over counter, down the wall, in the drawer under the counter and on the floor under the drawer. Had it revealed and have not had a problem since.

Thanks for any suggestions. I know water can run but we have never seen water anywhere. Neither the stove or frig are any where near where the damage is showing but we are open to any possibilities.

Any other experiences?

We had a water issue, found that it was coming from the shower, the lower corners at the walls, carpet in our bedroom would be wet after the shower was used. There was a small unsealed corner of the glass wall where the bottom track met the verticle frame. Caulked the corner and no more leaks. You mght to check it out.
