Stuff a bunch of dry paper towels under and around all the related equipment. ..

My bet is the main tank itself. Does the drip stop after it is lower than a certain level?

Hello All
Having the same problem. I was waiting through the winter for the weather to break into some warmer weather and then of course start to troubleshoot this problem. I was able to now just fill with water and try and diagnose the leak. I actually swapped the reservoir out last weekend for one I had that was known good one. I do not see a leak at any of the pumps and I had the front bumper off to do the Aux fan and saw no leaks there previously this year. I think what I will do is cap one pump at a time to see which system is the culprit. Good luck to everyone and when I succeed I will get back to you all

I also have this problem. Puddle forms under roughly front right wheel, seems to stop after water level drops to a certain amount in the tank. I DO have the headlight washers in mine also. Please report back what you find!
