City Water Leak

My 2016 Sprinter Forester just developed a leak in the city water system. A few gallons per hour leak to the underside of the motorhome. A very small amount leaks to the bathroom floor at the base of the toilet mounting pedestal. I can hear the leak. It is under the toilet. The city water connection itself doesn't leak. It is inside the wall and under the toilet. I see no apparent access to this from inside or below. Has anyone had this problem? Any solution other than taking it in to the shop?

To help narrow down where the leak may be, make sure there is water in your fresh water tank, disconnect the city water and turn on the water pump. If it still leaks, evidenced by the continuous cycling of the pump when no water is in use, then it isnt just city water. It could be the water line to the toilet or other fixture which should be accessible through a compartment or panel.

If you don't feel confident doing this yourself I would highly recommend turning off the water and getting it repaired ASAP to prevent further hidden damage.
