When traveling and parked in the RV, do you leave the switch on for the water pump all the time if you are not hooked up to the city water? I like to turn it off when not being used and then back on to use. That way the lines are not pressurized all the time in case we spring a leak. Am I being Paranoid about this? Will I wreck the pump if left on all the time?

That’s not paranoid, just cautious.

1More than likely you have a propane hot water tank. It will fill itself. Just run hot water in the sink for a minute to get the air out. 

2I never leave my pump on. Only put it on when I use it. 

3 if you leave it on unattended, you may have more issues of you spring a leak. And you'll burn your motor out if that happens. 

Just my opinion and what I do. Never had a problem with my method.

I leave the pump turned on while camping, off while traveling or in storage. Unless you open a tap after turning the switch off, the lines are still pressurized. Although it would limit the amount of water should there be a leak. As part of de-winterizing, I'll leave the system pressurized overnight, check for leaks (pump, heater and sink areas), and make sure all the connections are at least hand tight.
