Holding Tank Leaking

I have a 2012 Palomino Sabre 32RCTS. Last week while we were camping we noticed a foul odor in the cabinet area under the sink. The idiot lights for the holding tanks showed that tank #2 (I think that's the one for the kitchen sink water) was only half full. However, upon further investigation I noticed that there was water dripping out from the underbelly area to the ground. I immediately dumped the tank but the odor remained and the water that accumulated on top of the underbelly material continued to drip. I figure there must be a loose or disconnected drain pipe for this tank. Certainly it's not completely sealed. I realize I will have to remove the underbelly material to get at the problem. Has anyone else had a similar problem and how difficult was it to fix? Also, can anyone tell me the locations (the order in which they are mounted) of the holding tanks so I know which one to deal with?

Thanks

We have a 2012 Palomino Puma 23fb and We too noticed this on our last outing. However my leak seemed to dripping around the drain pipe, but it didn't seem like it was the valves. I'm going to pick it up from storage this week to check it out. I'll let you know my findings. Home its not a Quality Control issue with these Palominos.

I have a palomino sabre 32bhok-6 2012 and my tanks are as follows.
very front tank is fw
second tank is black
third is bathroom gray
forth is kitchen sink
fifth is outside kitchen

I am sure once you remove underbelly you'll immediately see which one is leaking.
I would think it might be just a loose connection on one of the pipes.
Let us know what you find and take pics for future reference here on FRF!

I had to get in to the underbelly of my old Jayco. I saw hat i had to do to drop the underbelly and i saw it was a corgated plastic like they use in sings. so i cut out a square were i had to work. when i was done i used old political sings to cover it back up. Cut them a little bigger and use some silicone caulk to seal and some pan head machine screws.

I can't think of a better place for a politicians face then under a black (#&85) tank.
