YES, here is one example of WHY

"Last year while at Quartzsite, we were watching TV and heard a bang, a plastic valve on the back of our Thetford Aria toilet let and quickly started flooding the coach. Luckily we were there."
I have never had it happen to me... But, have read lots of story's about the horror of finding this when coming home!!!!

I was taught to "turn off the lights" when you leave the room. My wife, not so much. We go around about the water pump switch sometimes but I still love her.

We have a 2 gallon pressure tank and a switch at every faucet. I don't see the need to leave it on all the time.

BTW, all but 1 of those switches has an idiot light that draws power.
