First issue, leak at water pump

While de-winterizing ( a first time experience for us), i noticed a leak at the water pump water intake. It seems to be coming from where the black screwy thingy goes into the pump. I just rotated it a quarter of a turn ( lifted the pipe) an it's barely dripping now. I'll wait after first trip to bring it in for warranty work in case other issues come up.
The other thing wrong is the storage door latch is short and does not stay put. Need longer one.

Are you talking about the latch to hold it open? Had the same problem on the front storage door on our new 5ver. Solved the problem by adding 2 gas struts to all 3 storage doors and don't even need the latches now.

Nope, the twist metal clasp that keeps it closed. One with the lock is fine but the other one is short.

I should add that i keep a small towel under the leak
to catch the slow leak if it happens

This thingy is a bit short. It catches on the edge and the rubber but comes off and if the door isn't locked, it opens

Th is the mark left from the latch as it slips past the frame and lets the door open.
Will get a longer latch ... Hopefully they exist.

For leak picture, wouldnt e able to see it without adding water to fwy an using pump.
