Kitchen faucet leaks

I have a new 2014 Dutchmen 261BHS. The kitchen has a goose neck style faucet. Every trip so far after we disconnect water it drips on the way home for a few days.

We took it in for some warranty work and said that the way it is. That water is in the lower side of the neck and can not be helped.

Anyone have ideas on this.

Once you have disconnected the water or shut off the water pump, turn on the faucet and it will relieve the pressure. Should take care of the problem.

It worked for me anyway. May still get a few drops but not much since I started doing that.

Gadou,

We have not used the fresh holding tank with pump. We were only using fresh city water. When we disconnected and open the faucet we did not have any water come out.

We find it drips about 1+ cups of water out as we travel.

I think we need to turn the pump on after we disconnect next time.

We leave for Yellowstone in a week and will need to do some more
testing.

Our faucet leeks under pressure if the water is turned too high up on city water not the pump

My faucet does not leak while the pump is on or while we are connected to a water source at the campground.

It use to drip while towing. I guess there is water that stays in the gooseneck and then it dribbles while traveling.

What I did is to relieve the pressure in the faucet after I'm unhooked from the water source or after I turn of my water pump.

That way I don't get the driblle mess while traveling.

If your faucets leaks while the pump or your hooked to water, then I guess there is something wrong with the faucet.

Hope this helps.

Might be time for you to invest in a pressure regulator before you find more leaks in your rig. You may be having leaks where you can't see and won't know until it's too late.

10 bucks for a little insurance goes a long way.

We have a regulator on the city water connection. There zero leaking while the city water is connected.

We only have leaking once the water is disconnected. Most happens while on a trip home. But will continue to happen until it drains the goose neck after returning back home.

Simple but works; my wife puts a quart baggie around the faucet and secures it with the snap enclosure around the end. We get maybe a quarter to half cup in the baggie but keeps everything else dry.

Or you simply remove the cover from the sink and the water will just drip in the sink.
