Insulation wet

Have an avenger ati and camping this weekend noticed that the incoming water line was dripping at the connection to the tt. tried to tighten but could not any more. Noticed under the tub the insulation was wet. My son came over and could not find any leaks in the tt. Connected to water again and everything is fine. Could it have been that the hose was connected at an angle and cause the water to run down the inside to the insulation? Now that the hose is not dripping, will the insulation dry or do I nee to replace it? Thanks

Those scenarios are possible but don't assume there is no other leak. I would pull out the insulation and recheck for any possible leak sources. Throwing out the wet stuff and replacing it would be best.

Have some fans blowing into the holes in the floor and try to force air between the walls and floor. Check to see if the exterior tarp is also holding water. With my 4th and 5th leak the exterior tarp was holding lots of water. I cut "X's" in the tarp to allow it to drain, then had a fan blowing up into between the tarp and under belly. I'll repair the cut tarp with black heavy-duty gorilla tape.
Here is a 12volt DC blower I made out of a PC cooling fan, a Styrofoam cup and some duct tape.

Our first trip our in Our 2014Avenger 27RLS Touring Edition, on day 2 we noticed a drip under the trailer at the shower area. I went inside and opened the shower access panel and found that the shower drain had never been connected to the trailer plumbing. While the drain and the "P" trap were in line with each other, with 3 showers being taken, a good amount of water had gone into the underbelly of the trailer.
We opened all belly access points, put a small fan blowing in through the shower access, and gave our dealership service department an ear full when we got home. They replaced the insulation.
