Looks like the cold water line is leaking. Even though it's dripping near the bend, the leak is probably at the faucet nut. Have you tried tightening it up a little? You may need a basin wrench to reach it.

Hard to tell from the video if the red (hot) line is leaking and dripping off the blue (cold) line or if the blue line is the one leaking.

Have you tried to tighten the faucet nuts?
If so, have you removed them and looked for a piece if debris that would keep them from sealing completely.
If the line nuts aren't leaking is it possible to see if the drips are coming directly from the faucet where the nuts screw on? Maybe the faucet is cracked?

Just some suggestions. Hope you get it fixed.

I haven't tried anything yet because we couldn't find the leak. Thanks for the info. I will try to figure out how to check on and fix the things mentioned. I think the water is actually from the hot water line....but of course I'm not positive.

After looking at it a second time it could be the hot water leaking onto the cold water line. Same advice as first time and as 5Picker gave.

Another thought...

I realize it's tough to see back in there but one of the lines could be leaking at an elbow (or the elbow itself is cracked) and depending on the slope of the line, it could be running back along the line and just dripping there where the two lines touch.

You are probably going to need to remove as much stuff inside that cabinet as possible to get in there to figure it out. Being a contortionist helps!

If your water heater is on, run the faucet until it gets hot, shut the faucet off and feel the temp of the drip. That should tell you which one it is.

As far as we can see, it only drips when the hot water heater is on. That's why I think that it is the hot water line that's dripping. It's very odd. Our RV is under warranty and it's been to CW but they couldn't even find the leak....much less fix it.

The cold water line appears to be pushing on the hot water line and stressing the connection at the nut or a possible crack in the fitting.
