I can fully understand why some motor homes have damp issues from the inside. My tap fitted to 2011 Broadway had the white push fit connectors between the tap tails and the hot and cold plastic pipes. The tap tails have metal ferrule ends that get pitted with age and the push fit connectors can start to leak as they lose their grip.

If anybody else has this problem I used 10mm compression fittings to refit the tap tails to the internal plastic pipe. Its not an easy job as the space is very limited but could stop a long term slow leak that you would never find behind all the storage under the sink.

Had a similar problem on hot water pipe by the boiler, main problem on mine was caused by the fact that the plastic pipes didn't have the inserts fitted to prevent the pipe collapsing in on itself.  According to blurb the inserts are not necessary but then why do they sell them lol.  When I took the joint apart you could see where the pipes had started to collapse which loosened the joint enough for it to start leaking.  I bought new push fit connectors & the inserts, fitted it all back together & all good again!

Johnuready.....   With the brass compression fittings,  I would be using inserts on the plastic pipes.......they will collapse sooner or later with the tight olive.    up!
