Flood in my 21fbrs

Went to the outer banks for a fall fishing trip. Had a full hookup site and the wife loved it! On the last day I closed off the gray water to give the hose a good flush in preparation for dumping the black market tank the following morning. Around 3am I awoke to nature's call. When I swung out of bed I stepped into about 3 inches of water! My next thought was of the 30 amp power connected to the trailer. I ran outside in my boxers and pulled the plug. Then I started looking for the leak. After sweeping all the water out and drying everything with towels I found the bathroom faucet cracked open. My wife tends to sleep walk and apparently she left the valve open to give our cat (who was NOT with us) a source of water through the nite. This is a habit she does at home. So over several hours while we slept, the gray backed up in the shower and slowly filled the trailer. Lesson learned!
