Location: New York
I have a new to us, and 1st time LQ trailer. 2004 KB with the Cutter Conversion. We are learning as we go and I believe we made a big error. Problem is, how do we fix it? I went to a 4 day barrel race and hooked up to the electric and water on site. I connected water hose directly to trailer. I'm seeing now that that may have been wrong? The underside of my mattress in the overshot was soaked, water dripping off the molding and under the overshot on the outside., but not out of where hose was connected. Great! As soon as I disconnected the hose, it quit. So apparently I blew some waterline? Problem is, how do we get to this so called line and fix it? Or do I have to take to a camper sales repair?

No magic way about doing it - You are just going to have to find the water line. Most trailers are plumbed with pex ( plastic water supply lines ) - Are you sure it is a water line leak. Hook it up at home using a pressure regulator on the fill hose and recheck. Usually there isnt any water lines ran in the walls or the roof so they should be fairly easy to track down. Could it be condensation or a rain water leak?

I am assuming by overshot you are talking about the nose. It doesn't make sense to me that there would be any water line anywhere around that area. In the trailers I've owned all of the water lines are along the ground. Do you know where your pump is? The city water should come in just past the pump. Maybe find your pump and see if there is any water in that area?
