Water Pump Light in Utility Area

I know this really should be posted under the Best Practice sticky, but I don't think many read it. So here I go. I've been wanting to put a water pump indicator light on my utility panel for a long time. The main reason for wanting this light was because I'm forever forgetting to turn the pump off after washing my hands after breaking camp and dealing with water softener and sewer duties. With the pump switch being very high and out of sight it gets forgotten. Not a big deal leaving the pump on you say going down the road.???.....Not really....I hear ya. However, we did have a minor incident a while back when traveling day to day. I left the pump on, and something shifted in the kitchen sink and it hit the single lever handle, causing the fixture to run water just slightly, fortunately the sink drain stoppers weren't in. I had gone inside the rig at the first stop after about an hour of traveling to check on things (and pee!) The water was running slowly. I was mad at myself for leaving the pump on, thus the indicator light!!! Not a big deal. We'll see if this helps the ol' man not forget!!! This light will be on if the pump was left on on the inside too. rockin'
