P-trap joints coming loose

Just wondering if this has happened to others and if I need to be checking them on some regular basement. DW noticed water on the floor in front of the sink during our last trip. I immediately blamed it on the dogs slobbering (always blame the dogs is my motto!) After some diligent clean up I started looking for the source. I figured it would be one of the water lines dripping but after much searching I found that the threaded fittings on the P-trap were all loose.

Snugged them up and no more leaks. We have put about 1000 miles on the TT since we brought it home from the dealer and the roads weren't terrible. Just wondered if this happens to others or if we were just lucky...

I just want to be outside!!!

Everything in any RV eventually works loose. I go through once a year and check/tighten everything I can find. Plumbing, electrical, drawers, cabinets, jacks, etc.

We have had several rigs where the plumbing was loose when we picked it up. Nothing like taking your first shower and stepping out of the rig to water and suds
