THOR #1175
Outside Water leak (2014 Thor Citation Mercedes Sprinter)

I have a 2014 Thor Citation Mercedes Sprinter. It appears to have a leak in the plumbing system. When I try to load water into the tank, a large portion leaks out from underneath. When I try to use the water in the tank, the rest pours out from underneath as well. There are no leaks inside the cabin or underneath the main bed, where the pump resides.

How do I fix this leak? Any thoughts and suggestions are very, very welcome. Also if you know of a good RV Service place in Denver, CO let me know. I've had very poor experiences at Camping World in Golden, CO. You can contact me directly at edfgaviria@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Ed

Updated info on this problem

The water is leaking out from underneath from one of the small hoses as seen in the picture. I think one of them is the overflow. Is the other the drain hole? How should I plug it?

Any thoughts and suggestions are very, very welcome.

Thanks,

Ed

Is it possible that you have a drain valve open? If you have a leak in one of the pex lines, you will need to get a pex coupling to fix that. They can be bought at most any hardware store, Lowes or Home Depot.

With the valve in this position I believe you are over filling the tank and the water is just coming out the over flow tube on the top of the tank

2nd Update

I was able to put a plug valve to the blue hoses and stop the water from leaking out from the tank but...Once the tank was full, I tried to operate it by turning on the water pump, but the water leaked out through the side of what appears to be my hotwater tank. The new jpgs are attached. Any suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks,

Updated picture of the water leak

As I mentioned before, the water leak now only occurs when I turn on the water pump. The picture shows what I see from underneath. Any suggestions are very much appreciated.
