Leaking at shower water line

Hi All,
Have a 2022 Axis. It's leaking at the bottom of the cold water shower line at the main water line connection point. Water seems to drain from under the rear wheel well. Can you access the main water line from underneath? And how do you do it?
Thanks!

A 22 with a damage causing leak in a hard to access location, OUCH
We've had 2 new RVs, took 1 in for warranty, it was gone 2 months in 2013
LESSON learned

If your shower head is on an inside wall (aren't they all? ) there may be an access panel low on the back side of the wall. For example ours has one inside the built in nite stand. It's the back wall of the dirty clothes closet. (which I left out increasing the space by 75%

FYI: Until you "see" the leak you haven't found it

Under the passenger side bed
There’s a hinged opening access under the mattress
Since your rig is new, you may need to remove one screw to allow for the panel to open up

Once inside there you can see all the plumbing and easily check for leaks

Btw…you didn’t specify if it’s the Passenger side or driver’s side rear wheel well
If driver side wheel well, it changes the dynamic
You would first remove faucet from shower wall and then work backwards
There is panel access under the drivers side bed, but will be more involved, removing more screws

Found the problem.
The dummies at Thor decided to staple the back wall without confirming they were hitting the stud. One of their 3 staples hit the stud but the other hit the cold water line. When it finally shook loose is when it started leaking from the line. Thor QC is horrible!

But then what else would we have to do?
I enjoy laying under the coach contorted like an acrobatic more than watching tv.
Just my humble opinion, plus, I hide from the wife, win-win

But think of all the help this post has given to those of us who may one day have a similar leak. We now know about the under bed openings.

sorta makes you glad that you had this leak.....huh?
