Mystery Water Puddle

I discovered a strange thing today on the passenger side of the trailer. A puddle of water. I know, call CSI, right?

But the odd thing is, there was no rain, I didn't wash the trailer, it wasn't there yesterday and the pavement everywhere else on our driveway has been dry all day, while that stayed wet. As you can see from the attached photo, no where else is wet. This morning I looked at the weep hole behind the wheel and that was dry.

Our water tank is severely bowed down in the middle but it does not appear to be leaking at all.

I'm thinking aliens, but does anyone have a more logical explanation?

I'm not there but making some simple presumptions, the driveway slope would be toward the passenger side and back. This would mean that the leak, if any, would be between the wheels. So that mean a leak in the kitchen plumbing? Any water inside?

No, there is no water inside at least under the sink. I also looked where the water pump is and that appears to be dry too. I looked underneath the trailer and there was no visible water on anything under there.

Where does the overflow for the fresh water tank drain?
