Water leak under trailer underbelly

We bought a Crossroads Rezerve in 2015 and after de-winterizing yesterday have discovered a leak by the outdoor kitchen under the underbelly. Is there a way to access the pipes without totally taking the underbelly off?? We dont want to have to take it back to the dealership as this would be the 3rd trip since October and we havent even taken it camping yet this year! it was winterized at the dealership when we had it there in october so hoping its a quick fix and not a broken line or something!

Did you winterizing the outside shower. That's often over looked. Could be leaking inside and leaking through. Just a thought.

I would hope the dealership winterized the whole works since we paid them to do it. the leak is on the opposite side of the outdoor shower we cant see it we can just hear the water when the pump kicks in

Will need to drop the underbelly and find it. Just because you paid them to do it doesn't mean they did it right. Since it's by the outdoor kitchen they probably forgot to winterizing that part. If it is a bursted pipe due to their poor work I would contact the dealership and make them repair it at no charge. I bet they forgot to do that part. Learn to do it yourself and then you'll know it's done right. The forum here can walk you through it.

Is there some way to open up the front of the outside kitchen (under the sink area) to access the water lines that come up there to the faucets?
If it busted one of the fittings there, it probably could run down and out the membrane some place.

I have accessed the area you mention by either 1) taking down just part of the membrane IE front or rear section or 2) take it down just along the edge - it's flexible enough to reach your arms in a short ways to inspect or repair something. If you do take the rear or front section down, two people to stretch and reinstall makes the job easier.

Usually the water for the out kitch comes from the shower along the floor inside the closet or vanity. At least it does on mine. You can see amost the entire pipe if you look from the inside of the camper.

I'm not hesitant to cut me access through the coroplast underbelly. Gorilla tape works really well to repair.
