    Manzie R Lawfer Why didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    March 7, 2020So Zorro (my rig) is a Thor Vegas. I love Zorro and have a great appreciation for his design. That being said, Zorro has a water problem. Zorro leaks water around fittings and the Artis water pump that is located under the bed next to the on-board water t...  more

      Tobie18 March 7, 2020 Sound like Thor did not use plumbers tape on your fittings. So when they heat up and expand. Then the water leaks. Plumbers tape would stop this. Undo the fittings, tape the threads and male connectors. Retighten. See if that stops it. Note: Some use pip...  more

      Solo Joe March 7, 2020 Trying to think this through logically. If it only leaks when the water heater is on, then the leak should be at the water heater. Even though you have a full tank of hot water, that hot water goes nowhere until you open a faucet. The only other possibili...  more

      TheClearyClan March 7, 2020 I had a leak that appeared only when we used the hot water. That turned out to be the hose connections at the bypass valve were only finger tight. When they got hot and expanded they would drip slowly. So it was not just water pressure.

        Habadabeer March 7, 2020 I had a leak at the same point, but for the opposite reason. Some gorilla torqued the plastic fitting so tight it developed a hairline split where the pex line attached. I ended up having to replace the bypass valve assembly. That cheap piece of plastic c...  more

        Habadabeer March 7, 2020 I guess that would actually be the Baby Bear solution. It’s been a while since I did my dissertation on “Goldilocks”!

      Dale - Darlene - Sadie & Danny March 7, 2020 Does it leak as the water heater is heating up? If so try turning a tap on for a second and see if it stops. Water expands as it heats up which means in a closed system like our rv' it builds up pressure. Often times the weakest point is the pressure reli...  more

        Roy Boy March 8, 2020 I believe you hit the nail on the head. Why don’t the RV builders put a small expansion tank in the hot water system.

      BuckeyeCruisers March 8, 2020 Our relief valve has a very slow drip when the water heater is on. When we get home, I’ll replace it.

        Dale - Darlene - Sadie & Danny March 8, 2020 Mine drips when it's heating up. I think that's normal a quick turn of the taps to drop pressure is all I do to stop it. At least when you see it dripping you know it's not plugged up

      Todd Ramsay March 8, 2020 I bet the leak is on the hot water pipe side. When the water heater is on it is heating up the water, this causes pressure in the pipe, thus the leak starts As previously suggestion by others replying. You have a barely tightened fitting or they didnt use...  more

      Dan-n-Jo March 15, 2020 Had just one thought, when water is heated it expands, you may have a crack in a fitting that you can not see but widens enough to drip when the water is heating up

        Habadabeer March 15, 2020 Precisely! I mentioned earlier I had a hairline crack in the fittings of one of my bypass valves from someone over tightening them. It was easy to see where the slow intermittent leak pooled, a lot trickier to find where it originated. You’ll need patienc...  more
