slow water leak

We have a slow water leak in our 2015 Jayco 24fbs under our kitchen sink. Just got back from a 6 week trip and I want to track this down ASAP. The puzzle is that it doesn't happen all the time. I suspect the water pump which is near the sink but I have to take the cabinet drawers out to be sure. Any one else run into this problem? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Water, under pressure is insidious stuff! It will find any flaw and exploit it.

Expose all parts to good light.
Dry everything with paper towels
The problem will reveal itself within minutes

Then the questions...
What pieces have to be replaced
How far up/downstream will be impacted
How much are we going to spend? (Always too much)

Check the connections on the sink faucet because there only finger tight and almost always work loose during your travels .

And the location of the puddle may not be near the actual leak if the water has run along pipes, fittings and cabinets along the way.

Check the connections on the drainpipes as well. The U valves on both our kitchen sink and bathroom sink were both loose, maybe from the vibration of travel.

I had this happen as well. Came back into my camper one night and had a puddle across the floor. It was a loose connection to the pump. Like the others have said the connections work loose during travel. I also had this happen to one of the connections on the water heater. I now make it a habit to check all of the connections a few times a year.

I had the Ptrap connection come loose twice in the past before I finally took it apart and found one of the compression gaskets was damaged during installation.

Our first TT had provision for a filter under the sink. There was no filter but a short piece of water line where it would normally go. The threaded connections leaked till I tightened them.

We found that the hinges on the lift up lid over our sink have a small gap that when you are washing or rinsing dishes allows water to run down into the cabinet underneath. The only cure seems to be exercising extra care when handling wet dishes not to get near the back of the sink. I looked under the sink many times before I figured out where the water was coming from, since it didn't happen every day and the amount of water varied.

Hey Kroc. On my 24FBS I had a leak dripping into the drawers under the sink. Traced it quickly to a loose fitting in the drain line not tightened enough by Jayco. Easy fix. X2 on what Tunce and others said and check all your fittings as they do come loose over time.
Happy RVing,
