Small Leak

Anybody have any ideas that might be causing this very small leak - near the back right tire - and I've seen a small drip near the front right tire too. The sink side of the trailer.

you might want to post which model you have, since you don't have a sig line listing it.

If you're using the AC could be condensation run off from up top if you don't have gutters.

have you checked your low point drains or FW drain?

I have a 2015 233s. Took it out for its maiden voyage last week. Saw a similar leak on day three. Only in the back though. If you have the same year and you remove the panel below the bathroom sink you will find that the shower pan leaks at the side wall. The water runs thought a cutout in the floor for the water lines. You will want to run a bead of silicone along the base where the wall of the shower meets the pan. Had this same problem with my old TT. Nice to know that they never fix these things.

Thanks - is the leak occurring under the trailer where nothing is getting damaged ? I am on vaca and debating whether I need to caulk now or when I get home - I guess we can stop taking showers.

If there is a shower building I would use it. The water is leaking down to the plywood and may be saturating it. I pulled the panel from below the bathroom sink and pointed my space heater into it to help dry it out. I'm paranoid that way.

If not the previously mentioned shower leak, check Water Heater, The drain plug could be loose or the pressure relief valve could need to be reseated.

Fed, did you check the easier possibilities, like low point drains?
That's where I found my similar issue.
