Water Leak


Recommended Posts

Just had a water fitting come loose under the sink. Water ended up in the belly of our 5th wheel and was running out from the screw holes holding up the cover on the bottom of the rv. The underbelly is filled with insulation.


Any recommendations as to whether to leave it alone, remove the underbelly cover & let dry or remove the underbelly cover and remove all the wet insulation and reinsulate or ?????. :(

First, let me welcome you to the forum. We look forward to your active participation.


You would probably be fine just opening a few areas of the underbelly and letting it dry out well. If you are in an arid location this won't take long. Perhaps a fan or two might help. Unless the insulation has been wet for a very long time I would not bother replacing it.

I would suggest placing some water alarms under the water heater, sinks and such places to warn you of leaks before they become a major problems. Ours saved us once. Search for them on Amazon. Greg
