Leak underneath

Our 2018 Sportsmen LE has an underbelly cover. A section has become wet and is sagging and we have no idea where the leak is coming from. Could it be the A/C or possibly the sink drain having not been connect to the gray drain hose, or possibly from the gray tank overflowing? The water is trapped up inside the insulation above the under belly cover. Do we need to remove it more to let it dry out or leave it alone? We have a fan on it. ThxClick image for larger version

You need to find the leak and stop it. And if it was mine Iíd find a way to remove the belly cover and inspect the extent of the wetness. If you really do have a leaking drain or anything else that might be significant or might have been going on for a while you might be surprised at the size of the mess. You really should remove the wet insulation so you can look at the floor above. Water is relentless and the damage it causes is very serious. Structural damage and or mold are common. And you already have some failure of the belly cover. If you arenít able to take this on yourself you should get it checked at a reputable RV service center. It could be expensive. Or not, if youíre lucky. Obviously I donít have any insight on your particular issues and Iím sorry if I seem to be over reacting or scaring you. Good luck. I hope itís easy.

I agree with Pete. If it was me that underbelly would already be removed so I could find and fix the leak.

I agree with Pete and Ace. You can't "wait and see" on this. Definitely has to be dug into.
