Leaks in 2006 Outlook

I neglected to winterize my freshwater system and today when I connected a hose from the outside I immediately saw leaks coming from the passanger side of the vehicle. No water appears to be collecting inside the cabin but it is streaming out from the area of the external storage compartments. Before cutting the pressure I was able to get water out of the kitchen sink but did not test the port (driver) side bathroom or the starboard (passanger) side shower. Did not notice any leaking on the driver/port side.

I'm guessing i'll need to take out all the starboard side drawers to see if i can get a better look at some of fresh water pipes. Anyone have a good idea of where to start? I'm new at this so if anyone has done this before I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks

First place I'd look is inside the compartment where the water heater itself is located. It is easily accessible from the outside. Once you are looking at the water heater, have someone turn the water on briefly while you are observing. I have seen a picture of one that was split wide open from freezing .... the water heater is quite thin (aluminum IIRC) and won't withstand the hoop stress created by freezing water as it expands.

Beyond that, there is access to the area of the water heater bypass valve by removing the inside panel under the refrigerator and just above the electrical panel there on the passenger side (it is about 4" X 24".) It is crowded in there though, with heater hoses to and from the engine but that is where the the water heater bypass valve is located for winterizing.

The low point drains for mine are under the bathroom sink (remove the plywood panel to access) but it sounds like your leak is more likely on the starboard side.

Good luck with the detective work. Let us know how it all gets resolved, pls.
