Underbelly Water Leak
Hello I am in the Uk and have a 2016 Sabre 34reqs and we have water leaking from the underbelly, Just wandered if anyone has had the same problem and if they found a solution.
Thanx Tracy :trink39:

We have a 2013 Sabre REQS. And on a trip a couple of years ago, I was showering and my wife said that water was coming out from underneath the trailer. When I checked the grey 2 level it was full. I would have thought if it was full it would have backed up into the shower. When we took it back to the dealer for warranty work I told him the service manager about it. He said that was normal. I disagreed. So he looked into it and found a loose connection in the plumbing from the shower to the grey tank.

The water leak could be a lot of things. It could be the shower plumbing as stated above, or it could be from a water line.

Does it leak all the time of just when running water in one of the sinks or shower or toilet?

Hi we think it may be the tank, we don't use the tank but when I run the shower water it came pouring out, so going to remove the underbelly tomorrow and see if it's the tank :trink39:

It could be the drain plumbing under the shower. I'd take a look at the trap under the shower to see if that's where it's coming from.

My black water tank just cracked on our fifth wheel during our last trip. Luckily it happened on the last day when we were getting ready to pack up and come home. I just ordered a new tank for it.

We have a 2013 Columbus. After the warranty expired I noticed a leak somewhere under the coach. To make a long story short on the service bay where you connect the fresh water, and the winter by pass is plumbed. We discovered that behind the wall a number of the cheap plastic elbow connectors had hairline cracks. I ended up hiring a mobile service who replaced all the plastic fittings with brass......No more leaks
