Floor wet

We are camping at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach. Woke up this morning to the floor soaked by the slide out at the front bed. What could be causing this. Any help would be appreciated. We have a 2011 21ss by the way

If it didn't rain, condensation from your air conditioner is getting in somewhere. Possibly at a slide seal.

Big swing in Temp's here is SC, add to that coastal humidity, likely condensation.

There was a small steady drip coming from a line going to pump under front bed. Don't know why water would be there because I've never used fresh water tank. I capped it off and no more water. Still trying to figure out AC leaking around vent.

When you hook up to city water the line going to your pump is pressurized a check valve keeps the water from gong to your FW tank. If its condensation from the AC then you have a seal leaking on the slide I would suspect. keep us posted

Even if hooked to city water there is water present at the water pump.
The pump has a check valve built it to keep the city water from back-flowing into the fresh tank.

You didn't mention which side of the pump the leak occurred (suction/pressure) but just because you didn't use the pump, don't be alarmed to find water pressure on the discharge side of the pump when hooked to city water.

If the leak was on the suction side it's possible the check valve may be partially stuck open. Or, if you have an antifreeze port, possibly the valve for that was turned incorrectly.

Without knowing exactly what line you 'capped' or some pictures to better explain what you did to correct, we are only guessing to answer your question.

I have noticed ( AC leaks) that when I have seen condesation leaks it always happens when...it is very humid...but the night temps are not very hot...by this I mean maybe in the 70's or so....AND I have put the AC fan on low.

When it is boiling hot at night we all probably have the fan on high...all vents are open ( if it is a ducted system) and no issues.

So just curious if you put it on low fan...which to me always caused condensation AND if the night temps were medium that combo has caused condensation. Once so bad I had puddles under each ceiling vent. Also cooler nights around 68 or so and low fan speed etc and you will get the AC compressor cycling as the system freezes up which also gets moisture going.

From then on fan on high..all vents wide open.

Thanks guys the leak under the bed at the pump was because the valve was turned the wrong way. It was for the antifreeze port. As for the AC I'm going to try something different to see if the condensation issue is resolved
