Leak In Bunkhouse

We have a 2020 Jayco Eagle 324BHTS with an outdoor kitchen. Bought it brand new January 2020. Have to say we love it BUT have had quite a few issues with it since purchasing!! Latest experience is over the last couple of months (twice now), we've had substantial water saturation on our bunkhouse floor (carpeted) and we're not able to pin point where it's coming from. It starts as you walk in the bunkhouse and goes midway back. Ceiling, walls, bunks, cabinets all seem to be dry with no signed of water damage. Anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions on where to start with finding the intruder? Thanks!

Not sure I understand rain water or water city water?? 1st time it happened, we are confident it had not rained. 2nd time it happened, which was weeks later, it had rained. Bunk on right hand side is a slide, bunk on left is stationary with outdoor kitchen on other side.

If it happens when it rains your looking for a place rain water can enter the camper.
If it happens when it’s not raining you are looking for a plumbing leak. Or a condensation leak from running the A/C.

Sounds like both rain water and a/c condensation may be entering from somewhere above and in the vicinity of where you're finding the wet floors. Tracking down leaks can sometimes be frustrating, but in newer units it's often coming in around a window and running down the inside of the wall. However, that's not ruling out a roof leak where the water is running across and then down the inside of the wall. Follow the Occam's Razor rule, start with the most obvious and simplest and work toward the less obvious and then to the impossible and keep in mind the overwhelming odds are I'm completely wrong and it's coming from somewhere else.

You don't mention if your outside kitchen has a sink or not. On my last bunk house, the valves for the outside sink were plumbed under one of the bunks.

As stated earlier, finding leaks can be a challenge. But not finding them will lead to even bigger challenges. Good luck with your search.
