oily liquid on bathroom floor in TAB 400

Found oily water (about 1/4 cup) on bathroom floor in TAB 400.  Wiped it up.    One week later (today) observed more (albeit significantly less).  My first thought was leaking Alde pipes in bathroom but the liquid is clear and not colored --I understand that the Alde liquid is opaque and colored.  The "oil" character of the liquid is unmistakable. Looked in Alde compartment - no evidence of leaking there.  Any ideas?  Thankfully, still under warranty.

    Have you taken showers in there recently?  I saw
    something like that when mine was new, and then it was no longer present. I attributed it to newness and
    the Aldi providing heat and hot water. Pipes needed a cleaning out. Mine is a 2019.

    Shower had not been used. Bathroom used for toilet only.

    "oily liquid" sure sounds like it might be glycol from the Aldi, or antifreeze from winterization?

    have you tried running the shower for a bit to see if that liquid comes out or if it's fresh water?

    if that liquid comes out, run the shower a bit and see if it changes over to water.. if it does then it was likely some left over antifreeze from .. winterization/initial shipping?

    If plain water comes out from the start then it's a mystery... maybe see your dealer?

    The only source of liquid would be the Alde heat register on the side of the wall in the shower area.  Where was the liquid found in proximity to the shower knobs, etc.?

    shower used during 3 week trip in may, so winterization had been evacuated over the course of the trip through use. shower emits clear, non-oily water.  no evidence of leaking from the alde heat register in the shower.  its a mystery. taking trip this weekend.  see if can detect the source over the course of the trip.

    Could water be coming in around your vent fan?

    Maybe go get a roll or two of those blue shop paper towels from Lowes/Home Depot.. they get darker when wet.. a good indicator...

    place them all over the floor and see if you can figure out the origin?
