When I start the pump I check all fittings under the cabinets and sinks and if I am on an extended trip I do it multiple times. I also do not leave the pump on at night or while I am gone from the camper during the day. Campes move and flex going down the road way to much to take your water line connections for granted and yes over the years I have found connections loosening up.
And that is absolute good practice to do.
My trailer is currently three months old and I've had it out four times. I expected some things would need correcting. Of course I was really hoping it wouldn't be water issues and wouldn't you know it.
The first thing was the trap under the sink. Washing dishes and water comes pouring out on the floor. That part was barely hanging on, it was so loose. Hand tightened and no more leak.
Second was a hot water line to the bathroom sink, needed re-seating and tightened.
