Hi, I’ve just replaced my water pump and unfortunately managed to have a water leak whilst commissioning.

The moisture readings are quite high now 40% just in the area of the leak..habitation check found them..

So I’m asking for opinions …

Will this dry out on its own or does it need intervention..I.e a heater…to dry it out.

It’s in the floor panel under the soft floor cushioning that’s laid down by Autosleeper…

My habitation engineer tells me that moisture can take weeks to dry out even with a heater on it..

I have my own thoughts but I’m interested in opinions here!

I expect it will dry out on its own, I've caused accidental spillages several times over the years and not caused any permanent damage.

In warm, dry weather conditions, just plenty of ventilation should help.

Thanks for your views guys, fortunately I’m off to warmer climes next week…you echo my own view that it will probably dry out, ventilation will almost certainly help.
