Valve for washing machine leaking

I do not have a washer in my coach but I still have the valves to connect one. I was dewinterizing my coach and was running the pump after getting all the air out of the lines. I noticed my pump did not pressure up and shut off. I checked all the sinks, shower, commode etc. I heard water running in the closet where the washer would be. When I checked the valve was leaking on the cold water. I went to lowes and got two caps for water faucets. I put on on the leaking valve until I get a chance to replace it. I am going to leave them on their even with the new valves. If I had thought to buy them ( 2.00 for the pair) earlier I would not have had a big mess to clean up. It might be something to think about if you do not have a washer in your unit.

Seals wear out. Or there may have been a bit of water in there somehow. I had the kitchen sink sprayer freeze and break because I must have not gotten all of the water out of it.

I am sure that a seal in the valve went bad. I had driven the coach the week before to get it worked on. When I got back I winterized it again for some below freezing weather. ( I use the air method) It had only sat like that for a week and I was getting ready for another trip. I put the cap over the faucet and did not get a leak anywhere else so I am sure it was not anything that froze and cracked.
