Thumbs down RV Wet Basement

I went to the basement on my 08 37' 5er and the carpet was wet not sure why. I live in Denver and inside my RV . I looked at the pluming saw not leaks. I have a small heater in there now to dry it out. The basement floor is pretty wet. Could be from the snow melting and getting inside somehow?

Anybody have any issue a wet basement like that?

Ok found the problem. Now it was the water heater. The water connector was dripping. Now that I have that fixed what is the best way I can dry up the basement to make sure I don get any mold? As you know most Jayco RV's have the carpet on the wood floor of the basement

If the storage is too small for a dehumidifier - you could try some Damp Rid....

Towel up the water, place an electric heater or fan aimed at the wet area run for a while, once dry; spray the area that was wet with vinegar.
