Phantom Water Leak 2012 Adventurer 32H

We have a water leak that drips from near the PS rear wheel well. This leak only happens when we actually use the coach. It is impossible to replicate when in storage. I really thought it was where the Bathroom drain empties into the grey tank. I was just able to get eyes on it and that is not the problem. It is not the Shower Drain, Bath sink drain nor Kitchen drain. the pump does not run intermittently (like there is a fresh water leak) It does not leak when city water is hooked up. If the coach is unlevel the water will leak from a different location. There is no water signs inside, no wet carpet, floor or other evidence of a leak above the floor level. The coach is in a warm climate, freezing is not a problem. We have contacted Winnebago they have sent drawings but it did not help. We have had the coach in for service and they could not get it to leak. Any advise would be appreciated.
Can't we just stop the drip!!

I would put a bucket under where it is dripping and see if it is black water or gray or fresh water. That would give you a better starting point as to what is causing it and where to look. Water will find the easiest path so might be in another location in or under the rig. Just where I would start.

I have a couple questions, is the AC, or Fridge running? I ask for a couple reasons. first the roof top AC evap drains out onto the roof while in operation and if its not sealed tight eight the AC base or to the roof you may have intrusion there. the second possible is the fridge.. on the back side is a small drain tube the should drop out through the body to somewhere underneath your RV, if the tubing is plugged it will overflow and find its way out. or if its damaged or not fully installed. the next possibility is maybe the packing around one of the water shut offs going to sink, shower, ect.. is the outside conditions rain? high humidity? is your water storage tank close and the vent tube off or damaged? Just my random thoughts

Nice Suggestion RD, Tried that and gathered some water in a bowl. Hard to tell if it was Grey or fresh. Definitely not Black water. The water runs off the Chassis so picks up some dirt before it drips. I don't want to resort to Dye in case it really stains something I don't want stained. @Koja The Condensate drains are clean and run well. Last trip never ran AC and it still dripped. Very Dry AZ conditions. No rain. Never leaks when sitting pressurized over several days. Really has to be some kind of drain issue.
Thanks for putting some thought in it.

Are you using any water when sitting pressurized? If not it could be a drain connection when using water, if not could be almost anything. Sorry could not be of more help.

Just got finished spending 3 hours running down the leak. (what else do I have to do on a Friday afternoon getting off work early) I liked Koja's refrigerator Idea. So I tracked down the ice maker line. unfortunately it was valved off under sink after the filter so no water is going to the icemaker. I Also checked if the drain tube in the Refrigerator might be block. It also appears fine. I filled the grey tank until it overflowed into the Shower. No luck. I filled the fresh tank until it over flowed, no luck. I am running out of ideas here.
Thanks for the suggestions

What side is your potable water tank? Can you get eyes under the shower? I had a buddy. His coach had a hairline crack just outside the drain in the shower and when you stood in the shower it was just enough to drip out underneath into the cargo area. Ended up building a support for the shower floor and then using marine two part epoxy to fix the crack.
