2017 Challenger 37KT plumbing leaking

We have water dripping out of the sub floor under the kitchen area. Have not found any leaks above the finished floor. Need some direction on this one.

Could it be your icemaker line to your refrigerator? I had this happen in my Hurricane 35M - the solenoid on the icemaker was bad and leaked down into the storage compartments below. My access to the icemaker water valve was a panel below the refrigerator.

No that's not it. I have drained the tanks and reconnected the water. At full pressure I found no leaks after 24 hr test. Well it must be a tank or drain pipe. I will fill the the tanks one at a time by hosing water into the sinks next.

Well that's not it either. I filled the front tank first. Let it stand for 3 hrs and not a drip anywhere. Drain pipes checked out as well. So I drained it and did the same thing to the rear grey tank. Not a drop anywhere again. I guess I have a ghost leak. I don't think it was black water because it was clear and had no smell. Oh well RV on!

I had a faucet that would only leak if you ran the hot water (shaving) long enough.

Not sure if this is the same issue but, i experienced a problem with the hot water heater leaking. Bypassed the water heater until I could take it to the dealer who fixed it.
