Are you using a pressure regulator? Could be due to high water pressure.

Yes have one of those. But we had very cold weather here and husband and I think we may have had ice in the lines😂

Yes we think we did. Leaked under camper on the side with water pump and hot water heater. Plus the connection to toilet was busted. But can't figure out where water is coming from under kitchen sink. We are worried we did something horrible and going to cost a lot of money. We don't know where to trouble shoot from. Any suggestions so we cover all parts?

Dry everything as best u can and just start digging and looking...remember water travels so where the puddle is may not be where the leak is....u just gotta get in there as best u can and find it...I know it stinks but it is what it is....let us know if we can help!

You have water under the camper? Did you winterize your camper or put it away with water in the lines?

And it has to be coming from the pressurized side...more than likely in the pump area.m

ouch....dont feel too bad your not the first one.....

hopefully you will find it is easily repairable parts.....the pex lines are pretty forgiving and dont usually bust.....its usually the hard fittings on the ends or something inside the pump....
