2015 179. I have a freshwater leak from the cold water line that runs under the floor to the sink. Anyone know if I can drop the black water tank down and access that pipe?   Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum! 

I have a 179 as well. What sink are you talking about? Is it the bathroom sink? Is it the kitchen sink? It will make a difference. Where is it leaking? You can't get to it from underneath. Those lines run inside the RPod. They run partially in the floor itself. Are you sure it is the line that is leaking? Please check to see that there are no loose fittings. Some of those are hidden.

I have a 2015 179 also.

+1 to StephenH, you can't get at this water lines from underneath without cutting into the plywood. Do his suggested steps first to be sure you know where the leak is, water tends to move sideways especially in plywood.

I suppose if you knew exactly where the leak was from underneath you could remove the tank, cut out a small section of plywood, carefully fix the leak without damaging the finished floor, then add and seal a piece of plywood under the hole. Then put the tank back. I think I'd prefer to fix it from above and just refinish the floor.

OTOH if there is much water damage in the plywood you'll need a reinforcing patch underneath anyway.
