Sounds like you forgot to install the pressure regulator before you attached to city water. The water pressure in my city is about 70 psi. The water pump in your motor home should only develope between 15 and 25 psi. As for locating the leak, if possible check with your local RV dealer and ask them to look at the manual they have behind the counter. Lots of dealers will help you in this. It is usually something they dont want to do is trace a water leak under sprayed foam. Give them a call, cant hurt. Good luck...

: While hooked up to city water, plumbing exploded under the kitchen sink floor. There is no water leak whatsoever under sink or at floor. It is under the floor and hidden in the underneath chassis, covered by foam spray insulation. After I heard a loud burst, water pours underneath rig as long as water is turned on. If I had a plumbing schematic, I could trouble shoot the location before I start attempting to remove the insulation, if I have to?
