Fresh water leaking out below outdoor kitchen

So I filled my 2016 Coachmen 30fw Pursuit with a bit of fresh water and off I went. Arrived home and found water leaking out below the outdoor kitchen area. Fresh water tank is now empty.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Ive never had an outdoor kitchen before and have not used that sink yet.
Thx,
Susan

Is your fresh tank drain closed?

Yes it is. Found a loose screen so tightened this. This was the location of the dripping water. Attached to the sink pump? Will try putting more water in now.

Seems to have been the answer although we haven't moved it yet. If anyone knows what this screen thing is would love your input. The bathroom is beside this outdoor kitchen. The kitchen sink and tanks are on the other side.

It's just a small filter, when you winterize you should put the suction hose tee before it so it gets the RV antifreeze also. Otherwise just another place to break when it freezes.

Good Luck

That screen filter is common on every factory installed fresh water pump. It is to catch the dirt and sediment before it gets to the pump. Being loose or cracked is a common cause of pumps not priming. It is not part of the pump if you have to replace the pump itself.

I have the same unit 30FW. The strainer is for easy access to clean out dirt or whatever from you water pump system. (FYI) That pump supplies the whole MH not just the outdoor sink. Hand tighten bowl so as not to crack it by over tightening. Hand tightening may vary by strength of owner. If not tightened enough it may come loose from vibration while traveling.
Perfect location for winterizing.
By the way, there should also be a macerator pump for the sink drain.

Have safe travels
