Like Half Dimes, we turn off the campground's city water faucet whenever we leave the coach & turn it back on when we return. I've always had this fear of something springing a leak when we're not there & coming back to a flood. If we're on the pump, the only time the pump switch is on is when we're needing water. Otherwise, it's off.

chiefdave, thank you for posting about this. Made me go look in the shower to see if there was anything that could fall and possibly turn on the water. I know how easy it is to just barely touch the handles and change the water. Only the shower head is hanging in there.

This past January while boondocking in Quartzsite we heard the water pump run and looked at each other. Rick said we might have a leak, I said lets hope it's just a faucet left running. The bathroom faucet was barely dripping, just enough to cause the water pump to run.

Thank you all for your inputs and suggestions. I will now always shut off the campground water when leaving for any extended periods. The water never overflowed the shower pan itself, so I had no water damage inside the coach. Additionally, I never found the small leak on the outside. Don't know if I had a small leak near the top of the gray tank or a line. Since it did not cause any harm, it did not warrant the challenge to remove the front panel on the outside water bay for investigation.
