Annoying water leaks

We purchased our first RV ( 30 ft, 1999 Georgie Boy) this past March. On our very first trip we had a major water leak. We had it fixed, then on our second trip we had a leak around the hot water tank. We purchased an extended warranty so took it into the dealer. He said water tank was not leaking but did fix a small leak that was located under the tank, which we felt we just missed when getting it repaired the first time. Next 2 trips went ok. On the 5 th trip we noticed a spot of wet carpet and have now found another small leak. Is this common? We mentioned to the dealer that on 3 of our 5 trips with the RV we've experienced leaks and the response was something like, " oh, thats too bad". Am I in for constant water leaks??

I have a 2000 George Boy this is a Class C.
My leaks were from PO not attending to the roof.

Knock on wood, no water tank or line leaks.
All lines are plastic / vinyl that can be bought
by the foot at home improvement stores.

The only way you will feel secure is to either trace
them out yourselves an look at all line and connections,
or pay someone to do it. Leaks happen but are not normal.

Be sure you have a water pressure reducer. Could be you are hooking into a high pressure situation either at home or away, aggravating the old girls pipes and joints.

Pressure Regulator!

We were in Indiana last summer, State Park, middle of the night BAM, water leak. Fitting blew apart. Hooked up my regulator that was laying in the basement () and found almost 70 psi.
