Leak in new trailer

I have a brand new 29.5FBDS, and the floor next to the master bed is wet (right behind the toilet wall). It's in line with the slide, so I suspected that at first, but we haven't had enough rain to really be possible. Fortunately it doesn't smell, so nothing bad like that. We're hooked up to City water, so wondering if there is a chance something is wrong with a valve. In either case, how do I go about tracking this down? Any thoughts on what it could be?

Get a hose and spry the slideout to see if it's leaking.
If not then remove any panels that can give you access to your plumbing.
Did you check the fitting at the back of the toilet?

Check and make sure the toilet supply line isn't leaking and flowing under the wall

Yup. Check toilet and lines feeding bathroom faucets. Sounds like itís coming from the bathroom

Had the same exact thing in our 29.5FBDS, it was the connection to thr toilet. Tech had to replace the fittings and then all the insulation under the trailer...

Woah, that's not good. From what I can tell from the bathroom, the toilet supply line looks good. No moisture at all behind the toilet. Is it possible the leak is below the floor going to the toilet?

If I spray the slide, I don't know where to look for the leak. The only indication is a wet carpet.

Question. Do you have a water pressure reducer on your city water hookup? I had a leak in my Designer 5th wheel last year. Added the reducer and all leaks stopped. Found that high pressure water was forcing water past fittings.

I would dry the area and then lay toilet paper down.

If the trailer is new, and not "new to you," I would take it to dealer (warranty).

Brand New 295 BHOK, had to tighten the fittings at the water heater and coming from the waterpump, only found those beacause I had the water hooked up while in my driveway for a few days and noticed small wet spots under the trailer. I think Jayco needs to do a better job on Quality Control.
