A slow leak? No
I got a new Puma 253-FBS and have it parked in my driveway while I get it set up and checked out. One of my checks was to fill the fresh water tank and leave the pump turned on. Sure enough, after 3 days, the tank was empty. OK, I thought, there is a leak in a fitting somewhere.
I refilled the tank and turned the pump off. After 3 days, the tank was empty again. Time to rethink the leaky fitting theory. I filled it once more and crawled under. What I found was a very slow drip from the drain valve. Aha, the valve isn't closed tightly. Nope, no matter how tightly I turned it, the drip was unchanged.
Wait a minute, I'm turning the wrong way. I turned it 1/4 turn clockwise and the drip stopped immediately. All this time, the valve had been completely open. I screwed it off and found that it was so tightly packed with wet sawdust that it took 3 days to drain the tank.
Sawdust in the heat ducts, I understand. Sawdust behind the electrical panel, I understand. Sawdust in the basement bays, I understand. What I do not understand is how they managed to get all that sawdust into the fresh water tank.
