Bathroom faucet leak

On my 98 Winnebago Chieftain the bathroom sink leaks only when the water is running. It comes from the cold water valve side. When the water is turned off there is no leaks. Since their is no leak when the water is off I assume it is the valve itself. It is difficult to see exactly where it comes from, but since it only happens when the water is on I know it is not a connection. Anyone with any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thank you. Steve

You're describing a leak in the valve's "gland packing".

Take off the cold-water knob, and you will probably find a nut that secures the shaft in position. Try taking about a quarter turn (clockwise) on this nut. Do not over-tighten, as this will make the valve hard (or impossible) to turn on.

If tightening the nut doesn't stop the leak, then replacing the gland packing will.
