Slideout caused water leak

Went out this morning to prep my 2000 Pace Arrow Vision for a upcoming trip. When I turned on the water pump, it ran for several seconds and then shut off when the pressure was reached. Several seconds later, it began running for several seconds and shut off again. This cycle kept repeating itself. After several minutes, I had water dripping from the under the bottom of the coach. After checking the water lines, including removing the toilet to check under the deck, I could not find anything amiss. To make long story short, The leak was coming from the braided hose fitting to the kitchen area slideout. I tightened both supply line fittings, and the problem was solved. It looks like after years of the slideout being used, it somehow caused the hose fittings to back off, causing the problem. I guess that this could be problem with any older rv with a slide. I hate water leaks.....

The key is preventative maintenance. Water fittings, and electrical connections are especially vulnerable to road vibrations and loosening over time. Now that you know, check all the above for tightness. If you are comfortable doing it; disconnect from any electrical power source, remove each receptacle and make sure connections are tight. Do the same with water connections, most are designed to be hand-tight, some may not.
