Help-Water Valve Busted

I need some advice, we woke up today and heard dripping water. I went outside and observed a huge pool of water all around the back of the trailer. Water was coming out from around the underbelly which is sealed. We have a Jayflight 27BHS. I went inside and looked under the bunk where there was now a small pond. The water leaked a little into the kitchen and bathroom.

My best guess is a valve busted or leaked between the shower wall. We were hooked up to city water.

My question is what is an acceptable fix. I am under warranty but worried about mold, wood damage and if there is underbelly damage.

We carry a roll of the "emergency" sealing tape that sticks to itself even when wet. The only glitch is, you have to be able to get to the leak to wrap it.

Anything busted may have leaked at a greater rate. In many cases with plumbing and everything else, after moving down the road it has just come loose.
If it were ours we would leave the water on and begin tracing for the location of the leak and the culprit.

I would turn off the water and take the pressure off the lines, If the water continues to leak more damage will be done. Then call your dealer Monday morning and let them deal with it.

If it's new enought to have a warranty and they are conveniently located, see if the dealer will deal with it

I would not worry about mold to much. If it was an on going leak and you just found it, that would be a different story. But you do have to dry it out good.

You will need to pull at least part of the underbelly to dry it out good. Inside get a good dehumidifier and a good amount of air flow in that area to dry it out.

The bad part, you have to find the leak. It's easier if the area is dry. I like to wrap the potential culprits with toilet papper, it shows leaks really easily.
