My 2 cents is before you do anything, try and find the person that was kind enough to shut your water off and thank them. Not everyone would have done that. One time I noticed 4 people standing at the roadside of a camper just watching. When I went over to see what they were looking at, I noticed water pouring out. I walked past them and turned the spigot off.


Good point! Thing is, being on several forum types, for a length of time, I usually can tell a lot about other posters character, by their posts/responses.

I knew RobWNY would help, in this case turn water off. I feel like I know many forum folks, some I consider friends, even though I've never met them.

Thank you Jerry, I think of you as a friend as well even though we have never met in person. I have received a great deal of help and guidance from you and you have saved me from spending money needlessly and from making many mistakes. I like to offer "my 2 cents" in hopes of being able to be helpful to others. It's the only way to pay it forward in a meaningful way.

Thanks for so many helpful responses. We were lucky that it was a T fitting that came apart in the water bay. Not easy to get at, but at least it wasn't inside the walls or in the slide. Fixed at home in the driveway in about 5 hours (We work slow).

While apart, we found another fitting that was leaking. And, the 110v outlet in the water bay (domb to install one there) was sealed on the front, but the box was not sealed at the back. All fixed now.

I ordered a $50 Camco regulator with a built in gauge. Not sure if that qualifies as a "good" regulator, but the next better at Lowes was oversized, $100 plus gauge and fittings. The extra cost and install time didn't look like a good way to go.

I use a pre-set regulator 100% of the time at the faucet.

Maybe there was a defect in the pipe that has the leak. Possible the regulator use of or lack of had nothing to do with the problem.
