Water pump leak

The other night the temperature dropped below freezing. Even though I had the heat on, the water pump developed a slight leak. Otherwise pump works fine. A small amount of water drips only when I use water, even if the pump is off and I'm using city water. The leak appears to be coming from the seam where the cap of the pump is attached to the main housing, Is there a way to bypass the pump when using city water so it doesn't leak? Also, if it is a crack or seam can it be repaired?

You could put a check valve or manual valve in the output line between the waterpump and the coach plumbing. This would prevent city water pressure from making it back to the pump. I would recommend both replacing the pump and putting in the valve.

Some manufacturers sell just the pump assembly as a service item. If it is an older pump, you may want to replace the whole unit.
