Default 1986 pt40 fresh water leak question & dia

Hi folks Guy Smalley here,
I lost the plumbing diagram for the 1986 pt40 (not WB) if anybody has one to upload thank you, I looked but I couldn't find one.

the leak is in the closet on the left side looking forward. you have pipe coming from the shore water but then from the edge of the closet wall pipes going up i believe over to the bath. 1. did the pipes cross overhead from the bath to the left side? to access the leak what the best way the remove the carpet covered closet wall?
thanks -guy

Guy, with a good flashlight you can almost see the dimples in the carpet where there are screws that hold the run to the brackets on the wall. There maybe screws on the verticle part of the run.

Would that be an island bed? Just curious because that sounds completely unlike our Bird which has pipe alleys at floor level running down both sides. Ours is twin bed.

On the queen bed the plumbing crosses over under the bed. No water pipes overhead.

Trying to figure out what the water line is to???? Maybe was plumbed for a washer dryer unit since closets on that side?? Maybe a drain line for the AC-doesn't seem likely??? It does leak when water system is pressured up and is a copper line?

Well thank you all, what an interesting journey finding the leak, after exploring more this was plumbed for a washer, so pipes rose up the closet wall. The leak was a nail like hole through the insulation pipe that shot a stream so hard it hit the pipes going up and the water looked like it was traveling down those pipes.
I still would love to replace my lost plumbing schematic page for the 86 pt40 thank you

Guy, I got quite a few factory drawings from Dan in the parts department at Parliament. Provide your body number and he'll look up what drawings they have.
