Default wet carpet at foot of master bed

I have a 4600 scb. I cannot figure out where the water is coming from that causes wet carpet on bottom landing inside the master cabin. It seems to be coming from within the wall of the starboard (aft) shower.

Are you running the AC when the water appears?

Actually no... but, I understand the question. We had that problem a year ago and once we removed the panels and un-kinked the AC drain hose that problem was resolved.

I believe the source of the water is the plumbing in the wall behind the aft shower - but, I don't know how to access the plumbing. And, this is on a 2001 Maxum 4600 SB

Can you post pictures or the area where it is leaking?

Does the shower have a shower head that can be pulled out with a hose attached? If so the hose may have a leak and is running down the interior of the wall.

Or, do you get water when the shower is not in use?

I'm sorry, can you clarify that a bit for me?

sorry for that last reply... I was on the floor talking to Siri on the iPhone. The problem is resolved and I thank you for the input - it was a cracked plastic fitting from the water hose to the fitting for the shower head. Had to removed the frame for the master berth door, cut four tabs on the first panel - slide it towards the bow, then the next three panels as well - was finally able to access the fitting in the wall - removed it and replaced it - cost $4... labor the whole day and a half dozen fiber glass splinters. I wish Maxum had considered an easier way to access this plumbing hardware.

Labor is usually the majority of the cost for repairs on a boat.
