I have a forest river camper which overnight developed a major water leak coming from belly. Turned off fillhose and water noise stopped but continued to pur out underneath for quite a while. I went underneath and cut some of the plastic covering and found leak dripping from hole under bathtub. How can I access the city water inlet hoses in that compartment without taking out the tub, which looks like a major job?hen
Water had also leaked onto floor next to tub. Definitely NOT drainage but from incoming city water. Bathtub is sitting on a raised plywood platform and I think leak must be coming from waterline that leads to bath faucet.

i think you answered your own question if the hose from the tank to the taps has fallen off i would first take the taps off to see if that where the leak is (at the top) i would think thats the most likely area especially if the taps were replaced. if its a hole in the tank itself (unlikely as tanks are pretty solid) thats a different issue

My friend had trailer that had a similar problem. The plumbing for the tub was in the wall in the hallway. We cut a hole and fixed the leak then added a 14x14 access door. Lowes and Home Depot sell all sizes of access doors. Hopefully your plumbing is against an interior wall that you can access.
