You do know these boats well Wolf. Pulled out the panel. No leaks. There is a board on the bottom with 2 screws. It seems to be really sealed in. Do you know what is below that? The tubes for the heater and washer go forward and then wrap around to the port side. But I think they go below the floor so pulling the refrigerator will probably not help. Any idea how to access that area?
So, the water lines do run forward behind the W/D then the go forward behind the fridge until they turn to STBD. and go under the floor to that small storage area in front of the fridge. Taking the fridge out allows access to the “pressure” tank and behind the W/D. If the hot water heater were to be leaking, it wouldn’t go that way.
The panel below the water heater…??? I’m guessing just an enlarged surface for the heater. What a total PIA it would be to replace the heater!!!!!
All that being said, if the heater relief valve isn’t leaking and no signs of water on the face, I’m a little perplexed as to where the water is coming from.
Pull the fridge and check the washer/wrinkler lines?
PS: Another thing I just thought of. If you had a consistent leak, you would hear your pump running periodically. Unless you are on the city water connection.
