Question HWH leak with cold weather???

All my HWH systems seemed to be working leak free, since my visit to Camp HWH last Summer. Recently,on two nights, one in Reno and then here in Sunnyvale, after the temperture dropped down below 40 degeres I found a leak. In Reno all jacks were down and slides extended, and had been that way for a couple of days. In Sunnyvale all jacks were up and slides in, and had been that way for several days. Both times about 1/4 cup of fluid leaked out from the general area of the connections just inboard of the pump manifold and dropped cleanly to the ground; no drip lines to follow and no "damp" connections. All appears tight and I don't want to over-tourque anything.
Any ideas out there? Could it be the cold weather?

Incontinence. Sometimes happens due to age.

I've never had a problem with our HWH's leaking, now if we were talking personally....

Depends are among the worst products for incontinence out there!
