One of the most useful tools that you can have if you own an RV or home is a pinless moisture meter. The tool allows you to detect and track moisture in walls, under flooring, or in the OP's case, moisture behind the shower walls. It's like a wall-stud finder for water. I've never bought a boat or RV without going over everything with one of these. I also use mine around the house to check for leaks around the toilet. The meter isn't expensive, typically less than $50.

I never use the absolute numeric readout value, I just look at variations when I move the meter along a surface. The meter can also respond to other things so you have to use a bit of judgement.

The OP didn't say, but if you hear the water pump cycle every so often, even with all of the faucets off, you could have a leak in a pressurized line. That, or a bad check valve in the pump

The fact that he detects no water until the shower is turned on says to me that the fixture has a leak at the mixing valve after the hot and cold valves. Those shower faucets are less than $30 and pretty simple to change out.

Should know today

Just dropped it off at the dealer, so hopefully they're tired of seeing me and my rig so will fix it this time. I'll report back to you all once we know.
We are quasi fulltiming now, awaiting our new home being built so will, unlike past trips to dealer where we headed straight home, we'll be using this thing daily. If it's still going to leak we'll know soon.

After sitting all dayinour campsght, hey called today they couldn't find a leak, and thought it was por chalking, again I had to tell them that three times they thought chalking could help and isn't look at faucet or fitting. Hey offered to swap it the faucet, standby. The next call said that with the new aucet in that they finally found a slight trickle. We have to take it back this morning for them to tear into the wall. We have a long drive today, once they're done, and appointments the next morning, so not the best timing, but at least it should be fixed today. I'll update gain with actual cause once known
