I have not seen a shutoff on any brand camper in the last 10 years. I have not looked prior to that so I cannot speak about the old ones. Sounds like this was an issue 30 years ago...
Cost and competences to the RV world is the only known reason I can think of to drive this decision. In the home, the home can be built to last a 100 years or more. Paying for shutoffs in a home is/should be standard practice. An average RV design life is how many years???
Amazingly with the level of RV grade robustness,...used in building a camper, there has not been more issues with end of use water devices. The towable RV bouncing down the road with no shocks or rubber suspension is a pretty rough environment.
I’m sure folks who full time in an RV see more failures of parts then the larger majority of weekend warrior campers. I have said this before, if the owner of an RV is not in some way, shape or form, have access to a person handy in repairs for free… do not buy an RV…
You can add no shutoffs to the list of other RV world short comings in longevity of useful life. I must admit, this is the 1st time I have thought about the lack of shutoffs. Don’t get me started on trailer running gear shortcomings….
