For that reason I much prefer the higher goose neck type ......if the hose loosens it would drip down to the sink . the hoses are generally very easy to tighten - one just needs to know .....
Good to know . Pat

I guess that the trailer has an advantage over a sink at home. The sink only has water pressure when occupied. I know that I have some plastic bins under the sink that I'm into every day. It would be obvious very quickly if there was a problem.

Actually it would be very easy to determine a slow leak, just turn on your pump and leave it on, if there is a leak you will hear it come on and off

Scott,
I wanted a pull out faucet because I do not have an inside shower. The pull out style will much easier to wash my hair over such a small sink .... hopefully without getting water all over everywhere. Do have the outside shower but there will be times that that will be inconvenient to use ... in a snow storm with freezing rain, privacy, while parked in church parking lots on Sunday mornings and temperatures anywhere below the minus 40C/F range. I'm from Alaska but there are limits .... sometimes .....
