BRAND NEW Valterra hand pump leak

Just connected and primed our brand new Valterra chrome Rocket hand pump, and water is leaking from where the primer handle connects to the faucet (albeit very slowly). Any suggestions for a quick fix? We're headed out in 4 days.

Leak fix

Mine did the same thing. Unscrew the handle fitting and apply Teflon tape to the threads. This was the fix the Scamp folks had for me and has worked so far.

Hand Pump

After a couple years use our hand pump started to leak at the black plastic nut where the pump handle enters the pump body. We just tightened the nut a little. Only tighten the nut enough to stop the leak. It is a plastic nut!

By the way, what is that white bar mounted on the roof of your Scamp?

Awning

It is our awning. It is an option installed by Scamp. We are glad to have it.
