Before cutting the subfloor might want to check the check valve in the pump. Could be something stuck in it.

Water is dripping from under the camper. I was hoping it was the pump, but it isn't.

I wouldn't go cutting yet. You might be able to lower the bottom belly on one side to view the framing. This could keep the alignment of that subfloor.

If you pressurize the system with 30 psi air, you might be able to hear and narrow down where the leak is......I would by-pass the water heater for this test so it takes less time for air to leak out.......

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I think I may have found the leak. I found an access panel to the pump and tightened all the fittings around the pump. I turned the pump on for an hour and it did not cycle one time. I traced all the lines and found a small drip on one of the drain lines which may need tightened up or resealed. I will check it again today to see if it lost pressure overnight.

Oh brother...I just read the message I posted. Not sure how the word porn got in there! It is supposed to be 'for an' not porn. A smart phone is a dangerous thing in a dumb person's hands.
