Customer Question
We have a 2017...

We have a 2017 312 qbr and noticed we carpet by the bunk side of the dining room carpet. We thought that it was a failure of the city water connection so we replace that but it still happens with the fresh water connection. We can see water drip every few moments from the plastic that is screwed in under the ca,per by the wheels. Any thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: What part of the car is the leak coming from? And are you sure it's water?

The leak was noticed as the carpet is wet, the drip is coming from the camper floor area just above the real front wheel. It appears to leak when the system has the water pump on and or when it is connected to city water

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 RV?

312QBD

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced the city water connection

C​an you get to the pump and see if those connections are tight? Is the water heater anywhere near there? Look for drain line leaks as well. Look for any area where you think it might be coming down inside a wall or under a wall like from the toilet. If you have an icemaker check that line. And are you sure that this might not be coming from the roof area? Happens frequently. Let me know what you find and I can offer more here. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

It is right where we connect the city / fresh water outside.

Not sure where the water pump is.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 months ago

That shouldn't be that hard to track down then. What kind of connections or fixtures are in that area?

There is the freah water connection. And the city water connection.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We have already replaced the city water connection
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 months ago

Y​ou should be able to get to that side of the water lines and find out what is loose or broken. Is that possible?

Its why were reaching out. Just didn't want to start cutting it out if it was an easy fix
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 months ago

Is this connection above floor? It should be. You should be able to see the leak with the pressure on.

FlairIt makes some good fittings of all types that are easy to install. No special tools required.
