Dripping sound after using water pump

I noticed that when I turn on the water pump, even though I'm not using any water, every few minutes it comes on for a few seconds. And when I turn it off, I hear a rapid dripping sound, somewhere on the right side, near the back of my Casita 16'. When I look under the camper I'm not seeing any dripping. Any thoughts on what is dripping and where?

That typically indicates a leak somewhere.

The cycling pump could be from a tiny bit of dirt stuck inside one of the pump's check valves. The dripping? look into the compartments with the water tank, pump, water heater, etc. you may have a puddle of water in there that is not draining outside.

Found the leak!! It was coming from the fitting between the cold water line and the kitchen sink. A friend took it apart and put it back again and it's fixed!! Thanks for your suggestions.

I'm so glad you found it and your friend fixed it!

Paul insisted I add, "If it drips after use,
you probably didn't shake it enough."
