Has anyone had trouble with water leaking into a couple lower cargo containers on a 2008 independence 34ft? I can't find the cause of the leak. I tried spraying water around the hatches and on the roof but nothing. one hatch is next to the water heater but it seems to maintain pressure. Any ideas would be helpful!

So if 'it maintains pressure', you don't hear the pump coming on, you have pressure even after the pump was turned off for a while, then it's not the pressurized system that is leaking.
That leads me to think it's the drain system that is leaking. Like the plumbing and traps under the sink. When they leak a lot the water ends up in the lower storage area.

Thanks for your comments. No sign of leaking around the traps,toilet. Will run water and see if I can find active leak in drain system. thanks again!

Used to have the same problem, front bin on either side, but not for the last year or so. Had the whole mh recalked, wonder if that was the secret.
