Exclamation HELP! Our kitchen sink is dripping from underneth?

Have a new 2015 27rlws Flagstaff. I was cleaning after a weekend of use, and when putting away my cleaning bottle under kitchen sink, my hand brushed against dripping water coming from basin of sink. NOT any pipes. I had just put water in left side to mop floor (cold water) so wondering if it is condensation? Who wants dripping water under kitchen sink if that is the problem. This is our first trailer experience with a plastic sink. Others were always porclein or simular. Is anybody else having this problem? Thanks

Probably from the sink drain flange nut or insufficient "putty" in bowl drain.
Look under again there should be a big nut that holds your bowl drain flange in.

A loose drain flange was one of the plumbing problems we had when we first got our trailer this past spring. The majority of problems we had when we first got the TT home were plumbing related. My feeling is it doesn't hurt to take the time and check/tighten every plumbing fitting you can find before use.

I had 1 flange nut just hanging not even on threads. Also there was no sealant under the strainers. Like old fashion plumbers putty or even any silicone. My granddaughter said what stinks and that's how I found it. Dripping water a little at a time but we had a plastic container under it never ever noticed it.

Your warranty will cover it, take it to your dealer. Or just about any competent plumber could fix it. I have a new 21FBRS and had a couple of issues which are now repaired. All makes of TTs/campers have issues right out of the factory. Why, because humans build them....

Get your flashlight and get under there to look around.
You might find something loose.
Or take it to your dealer if you don't have a flashlight.

You could take it to your dealer, but why? It's a very easy fix, just put some sealant under the strainer and tighten the nut. Much easier then taking it to a dealer or calling a plumber. My wife could even do it and done it. A very simple fix, not worth the gas to take it to a dealer..... I agree with SparkeyBob, little things will show up that are just missed by the factory or the dealership during there pre inspections.

Fix what you can, ask out what you can't and take it to the dealer when it's expensive.

Not coming from a drain or center of basin. The whole entire bottom basin drips. Day b4 my husband dumped ice from freezer. Surely was not from condensation day b4? Drippings are so like condensation drips. Is this happening to others?

I have never heard of that. Water travels in funny ways, Do you see putty or sealant under your strainers? I would also check your faucet for the sink. It can not be Condensation. What is the sink made of composite(plastic), stainless steel, or porcelain? Stainless is the only one that could do that but you would have to have a huge difference in temp. between the sink and your cabinet.
