Water leak in storage area.

I have a 2015 cedar Creek CKTS and I noticed that there is a water leak in the storage compartment around the wood where the drain comes down.I believe it is only when the shower is being used.I noticed that there is very little to no chalk around the top of the shower but it is pretty high.I also noticed there is no chalk around the bottom of the door.(I donít think this would cause the issue).I took of the faucet and did not see a leak in the wall.Any ideas?Could it be the lack of chalk?

Can't speak for you specific model, but we had water on the bathroom floor and it turned out to be the flange bolt on the bottom of the shower drain was loose - our access to plumbing is through a small access door outside, went in there and tightened it up by hand and no more water.

water leak

We have 2015 Cedar Creek Silverback. We also had a leak in storage compartment area under shower. But it turned out to be a water heater tubing leak. Just added a new clamp to one of the tubing connections. I had to get into the storage and pull back a fiber board panel with paper towel until we found it. Works great now! Hope this helps and you can find the problem.

Ours was leaking where the arrows are pointing in the attached picture. I pulled the whole thing loose, flipped it over where the hose comes out the bottom now, lined the black plastic piece with butyl, reinstalled then put a bead of sealant around the assembly. This along with the hot water line to the faucet was leaking into the basement.

What threw me, is I just thought I had found the leak when I retightened the hot water line. Then when the water appeared again, that's when I found the other leak.

Good thing was, I had installed an access panel in the bedroom before we ever used it, so access from behind the shower was easy.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Here's the access panel I put in. May not be the most attractive thing in the bedroom, but sure is easy to inspect things.

I had a leak in the basement under the shower, and it turned out to be a loose connection from the black tank rinse hose. Easy fix, thankfully.

I hope it turns out to be an easy fix, I have a LCD inspection camera with a 3 foot tube and I am going to try and figure it out this weekend. I hope. It is still under covered since it is only 2 months old but the dealer is 1500 miles away. Plus I like to try and find thinks my self. LOL

I had exactly the same problem on our last weekend trip a couple of weeks ago. The flange must have vibrated loose while we drove back from WA the week before as we didn't have this leak during our two week vacation. Tightened it all up and problem solved - for now.

Door seal on driver side

I have narrowed down my rain water leak to the D shaped seal have all collapsed.
Next project will be to replace the rubber seal with new D shaped seals.

Anyone else have this happen?

We have a leak in the cargo area in our WP25ULA... it is coming form the outside ... the hinge has little tine slits at the top and water runs down the wall onto the hinge tio and into the cargo area. It was a bear to spot!! Dont know how they are going to fix it but they need to get it fixed!!
