confusing wet spot in bedroom on a Force 37BHHD

We discovered a small wet spot of carpet in the bedroom. Near the back wall, but the wall isn't wet, and there doesn't appear to be any moisture coming from the window. I lifted the bed and everything is dry near the fresh water tank. I looked underneath in the compartments and all appears dry. Has anybody else had an issue like this?

Thanks

Larry

Did you fill using the gravity fill?

On mine the hose clamp was tightened by a man with a few missing fingers so a good grip in the flathead screw driver was impossible

the caused water to track along the wall during the fill

Condensation from overhead AC unit? On real humid days ours will drip inside a little.

A/c unit is too far. Was the leak near the bottom of the slide?

The wet spot is about 2 feet away from the slide close to the wall, but the base of wall isn't wet

I wonder if it came down the inside of the fiberglass rear cap until it hit the floor?

I'm leaning towards that's all it could be. I flew my drone overtop of the roof, but didn't see anything suspicious, time to get up there on a ladder

When I replaced the rear window you cam see a bunch of places where water could get in if not caulked properly

Then your wall would be wet...I would pull the carpet to see if it is running along the floor before you rot that cheap crap out...

I was afraid to ask that but, you need to take the dog out more often.

I don't have a Dynamax, but I did have a strange small wet spot in the bedroom carpet at the back of my coach (it was definitely water)... Figured one of the kids spilled something and didn't think too much of it.

The next trip out, the carpet got totally saturated on the first day out (of a 3-week trip). Also found water dripping fast out back of coach to the ground.

A little searching, and was able to conclude that water was leaking out of plumbing that was routed under the rear closet floor, and over the engine compartment. Discovered that when the coach was built (2014), a screw that was driven into the closet floor pierced the PEX plumbing running to my water heater. It took 3+ years for the screw to rust enough that the puncture started to leak. The leak was very small at first, but quickly became a big problem.

I hope this helps! Your leak may be nothing, or it could be the sign of something bigger to come. It's definitely work investigating...

No pet on board. I talked to the dealer today, he suggested getting on the roof and check the caulking at the back cap
