Im out of ideas on what to do with this one. Im looking for help. Im camping and using propane and the internal water tank, uing the pump to supply water. My shower is on one side and my toilet and sink are on the other. I got out of the shower yesterday to find a big puddle of water in the toilet room. After troublshooting i found that the water line wet in the belly storage. Those water line led to the sink and not the toilet. I found the top shelf under the sink soaked with water. I cleaned up all the water of course. I tried everything to get the sink to leak. I simulated a shower, pressurized the pump, everything. I could not duplicate the leak. Threw out the day and night i checked to see if it had leaked under pressure of the pump. No leak and the pump never kicked on to indicate a pressure leak. Today i took another shower. The toilet room was dry but under the sink the towel i put down was soaked. Once again on visable evidence of any leak, efverything was dry except the towel. I was thinkin that i may have a vent issue but still where is the water coming from. HELP

Check all the connections, one or more may be loose a little. Good luck

That's a weird one. Leaks in a sink tap supply line is a good idea but why only when showering? The only other thing usually under the lav sink is a vacuum breaker for the sink drain. They often fail but usually don't leak water. They are easy to replace and cheap....I'd screw it off and screw on a new one just to be sure.

While in the shower have the significant other watch under the sink. or put a light in there with your phone taking video.

You can blow out the system and pressurize it with air. You will hear the leak and can find it quickly.

Sounds like you're looking for a fresh water leak. Could it be leaking from the shower drain, like an overflow or a cracked pipe?

Cabinets doors open under sink, shower on, flash light on to find leak. Could be simple twist of a slip fitting to get water tight. Vibrate loose on the roads? If it turns out that is the problem, take wives nail polish and make little tiny index mark to be able to see if it wiggles loose and be able to tighten it before it leaks next time. If that is not the problem, you shouldn't have that had of time finding the leak as you already have leak isolated to what area.

Ive done all that except for the nail polish. Everything is tight. i just went back to check again and still found no leak. Shower on, shower off, pump on pump off. Sink on, sink off. No leak noted. Same as yesterday after i cleaned up the water. I was even thinking I have a roof leak but why would the towel be wet on a shelf under the sink. The shelf has nothing to do with the roof, not even close. Makes no since. I will try the air pressure test when i get home. How much PSI? 60-70?
