This isn't going to be much help because I dropped my holding tanks and ripped out all my water connections and drains. I also tossed the sink, toilet and shower pan. What I found was all the connections were-press fit and prone to leak. The drain lines were styrene and also prone to crack. And this is on a Gulf Stream. Everything will replaced with marine grade fittings and flexible hoses. My system wasn't built to flex or repair.

Do you mean Fernco couplings?
Fernco Flexible Stock Coupling | Plumbing and Drain Flexible Coupling | Fernco
I've used these in the house, they're easy to install and make a nice seal.

The pump test did reveal that I'm losing pressure somewhere as it kicked on in the morning. My bathroom rug is dry so, hopefully, its not a toilet connection. The search continues...

Had a leak that i thought was toilet. I opened up access to the water heater from inside the bath and discovered a fitting that is grey in color and the inside of it sheered off and caused the leak. Found the fitting in a package to winterize the pump and now it is fine. we have a 93 Fleetwood.
