I don't leave it on....There are lots of risks associated with camping. This is one that's just too easy to avoid.
I hear that.

I don't hook up to city water either as I cannot easily turn that off at will. And my coach being old has a few pesky leaks that city water pressure will breach (even with a reducer), but not pump and tank.

When my coach was newer, I could tow with the pump on (actually by mistake) and not have a problem. But now, when I get to the campsite, and turn on the pump, it will run but not pressure up until I flush the toilet or run the shower. I assume road vibration is causing water in those areas to leak out. To where I have no idea.
