I hate to just leave you with that. Under the sink you have a rubber ring above the big nut. make sure that is tight, they also normally do not put plumbers gray sealant or a silicone sealant under the strainer. I will bet $1.00 to a doughnut it's not there. If not do that first then keep a eye on it or the other is the faucet is leaking. Fill your sinks with water and put some paper towels under it and see if your leaking with water standing in the sink. If the bottom is dipping off the sink bottom my money is on your faucet. If it will hold water with no leaks.

As I said in my previous post I would go through the whole trailer and tighten all of the plumbing fittings that you can find. This would include the ones to the kitchen faucet. If you do not wish to do this then I would take it to the dealer and let them do it. Loose hose clamps and drain fittings are a fairly common problem with new trailers. I would also make sure you don't have a high water pressure problem and would be sure to use a pressure regulator on your city supply line.

When I was sterilizing the water system for the first time I found the drinking water tank hose did not have a hose clamp and 4 or 5 other water connections in that area were not tight. This prompted me to go over every plumbing fitting I could find and access to be sure they were tight. During this check I also found our sink drain and it's pipe connections were not tight. All of these would result in water leaks that might not have shown up for a long time and likely would have cause damage to the trailer.

One other thing you said you were using the sink for mop water. Did you have water on the counter top? If the sink is not caulked well it is possible water from the counter got underneath and ran down the side.

If you had a good PDI (pre-delivery inspection), the dealers service tech should have found this. When we picked up our new Rockwood the tech spent three hours with us to make sure we knew how everything worked. I stopped him when he told my wife to jump in the shower and soap up. LOL.

Sharon, have you tried filling the sinks with water and looking under there to see if you can tell where it's coming from? Have some towels and a bucket ready.
