Just added water,we have a leak !

Hello,not a big deal,but had this a week now,17RP Wolf Pup,On the plus side our Harley fits just fine !
added water to the holding tank,to disinfect the tanks before using,added 2 oz bleach as instructed, dripping where the lines come from the bottom of the fresh water tank,what i found was the Cheep plastic clamp was not tight and was leaking, took a pic and a very short video,for the record ,removed the plastic clamp but on a good stainless clam Now no leak , buttttt the insulation is wet about a square foot area,guess i will point a fan in so it can dry out ,i see no real damage but am calling Forest river..

Just filled the tank on our 26DBH and have a slow dripping leak because of the cheap plastic clamp for the hose. Replacing that with a metal hose clamp today

When my trailer was new we discovered a drip at the water pump.
There was a stainless automotive type clamp there but it was not
tight.
Also found a bigger drip at the water heater. A screw on fitting at the inlet
was just finger tight.

My first trailer blew off the water line at the pump. Luckily we were
in there at the time and heard the pump suddenly start running and
quickly found the flood and shut off the pump. Again it was a loose
screw clamp at the pump outlet.

Every trailer I've owned leaked somewhere or other when they were new.
Seems like they get tired at the assembly line and loose plumbing fittings
are common.

Glad you found yours right away!
Now go camping and
