Leaks are the WORST!

Especially in campers. But, you pay a price for living the RV lifestyle… 

Our old camper (2010 Forest River Wildwood) ALWAYS leaked under the bathroom sink where the water first came in. Every time the weather would change, the hoses would shrink and we’d have another puddle. We decided not to get another Forest River. 

We went with Grand Design because we thought it was the highest quality product on the market. Well, it still has the same crappy water hoses with poorly designed hose clamps. 

We noticed a puddle under the camper and started to investigate. Once we got into the big cubby, we found a puddle. We took two walls out that were blocking the water hoses and hot water heater and found the drippy source.  

    
 The hot water hose was leaking. The hose clamps they had on there couldn’t be removed or tightened so we had to cut it off the fitting.  

    
 Then we went to Lowe’s and got some better hose clamps. We thought we had some but we must’ve used them all on the old camper.  

 Allen let me fix it all by myself! It wasn’t hard, just obnoxious… Hopefully it’s fixed for good!  

 I’m glad we caught it when we did, otherwise everything in the cubby would’ve been soaked!
