Water

I have never put water in the tank, I have used the pressure release valve on the water heater many times but yet I am getting water in the sink of the 2317g. I have never used the pump. We dryland camp, essentially a place to rest our heads. How is this water, where is this water coming from?

Confusing, you've never put water in the tank or used the pump and you dry land camp, but you have used the water heater relief valve. Maybe I am dense, but why would you have to use the relief valve on the water heater?

Well I suspect the dealer, manufacturer put antifreeze in the system to test it out. for some reason water appears in the sink.

The pump is never on. There is no water in the tank. I'm as confused as you guys.

Diesel,

How much "water" are you talking about?
A few drips occasionally?
Just the kitchen sink?

I am also curious why you felt the need to open the relief valve on the water heater.

Can you catch the drips in a glass?
Are they clear or tinted?
What color if so?

Herk

some times if you open the tap a short stream of water comes out. Yesterday I put a bowl in the sink, opened the taps, went away for the day and there was a half gallon of water in the bowl.
When I took delivery of the the trailer the dealer showed me the relief valve and said the system was presurized. I thought opening the relief valve would help drain any water that was in the system

If you want it completely drained, have you found your low point drains?

If you take the caps off and open a faucet, any trapped water should drain out of the system.

Half a gallon is a lot of water for a supposedly empty camper's plumbing system.
