Is it possible it is coming from the sink? We had a strange leak this weekend where it would only leak when you turned the water on and then off. The water was coming from where the hot line went in but the fitting was tight. We had issues with the faucet leaking out the top from day one and just tightened it up every time. This time I removed it and found 2 pinched o-rings. Every time you would shut the water off, the water remaining in the faucet would go down into the faucet housing and eventually leak out hole where the hot water line came in from. Replaced the o-ring and no more leak from the top or the bottom.

Have you had other issues that where not resolved ? How manny times have they tried to fix the leak? If your not getting results from the dealer try another one. If you keep in contact with the factory that helps. Sometimes it's better all around to bring it back to the factory and lot them solve your problems.
Good luck.

I have a 2013 sv305 that came new with leaks. After about 3 trips back to service, they finally got it fixed. Ended up being where the awning was attached to the camper. Water leaking in thru screw holes. They got it sealed and no problems since.
