I have a 2015 Casita Spirit deluxe. I was wondering if the wooden board under the two seater dinette, adjacent to the floor is removable. I have seen a small amount of water from under that panel.

Yes, that floor board is removable. Pry off the two caps on the screw covers to access the screw heads. The water lines and I believe electrical lines run under that board. You may have a small leak in one of the PEX tubes. Best of luck!

And those toeboard screws are not "stripped out" Phillips Head screws. They are #2 Robertson Square Drive head screws, which will require a #2 Robertson Square Drive screwdriver to install or remove them. And when you get ready to reinstall the toeboard, run those screws down to where they are even with the floor before sliding it back into place. This will keep you from accidentally puncturing the PEX water hoses behind the toeboard when it is screwed back in. Don't ask me how I know this. ;-)

I also cut my slanted toeboard in half at a 45 degree angle, reversed the halves, and screwed them back together to form a square box shaped toeboard instead of the angled one. Now we can rest shoes on them under the table.

Now that's an idea worth a dollar! We are forever looking for places to put shoes and slippers. Why either of us need more than one pair is beyond me, but I don't like to walk the dog around the campground while wearing flip-flops and it's nice to have a pair of slippers in the winter to keep my feet warm, so we can each have three pair at times. It's too hot to work on the Casita today, but I'm headed out to see about that project. I like it!

Thank you all for the information. I was wondering if you might have an idea of where the leak is coming from. Only happened after flushing out antifreeze from entire trailer and only at that spot. I have since used the kitchen sink and bathtoom shower and sink with no water appearing. I have not used the fresh water or the outside shower. Can't really think of anywhere else could cause it.

I don't have a dog to walk, Toddy, (and we no longer take our leash trained Siamese cat) but when we camp, I, too, have more than one pair of footwear. The Teva's stay inside the casita and my hiking boots are for everything outside. Keeps things a lot cleaner in the camper.

When you were flushing out the antifreeze did you use a hose on the shore fitting and if so did you use a pressure regulator like this? If not you may have a leak in a PEX fitting.

Hi Joe, yes I use that all the time. Had a RV service come out and they checked everything. Couldn't find anything wrong and no reoccurrence. A bit of a mystery.
