Is the drain tube properly routed? Mine goes into a small pan inside the lower access door. Some have a flex hose with a small press in white screen in the end - these normally stick out the lower access door to drain directly outside.

Just went back out, not the fridge at all. I'm thinking the filler hose came off the fresh water tank, nice PDI Camping World. 120 miles back to dealer

You will probably need to leave it for a month or two...

Welcome to the world of RV service! Sorry...

Can be a three ring circus sometimes and the finger pointing starts early. I'm attempting to get mine in for service for a stuck black tank valve. Three weeks they're saying plus who knows how long before the part gets here. Good thing I don't have any plans.

It would be so much easier and less stressful if you poked around and found where the leak was/is originating and just repaired it yourself. Relying on a dealer for service after the sale is like a snow storm in AZ. Besides, you'll be doing a lot of minor repairs or the dealer will store it for you while the payments are being made and they and the manufacturer are doing the responsibility dance.

When I picked up my Endurance, the underbelly also had water. Realized the locks on the storage door (passenger side) were installed key lock on top and manual lock on bottom. I swapped the top and bottom around and that fixed the problem on mine. I noted the driver side was already like that. Hope this helps.lol

the drain tube on fresh water tank was broken loose from bottom of tank, a thorough PDI would have found it. Fixed it myself with Marine Seal
