Other than the above, things have remained quite dry.
John, this is an item that should be check freq and most importanly after a long trip. I always tell folks to be sure to check the traps in both the bathroom and galley before turning on the water. Vibration from the trip will do it as well.
Nice to see that you're still around!~

Copper gas line into stove under cooktop was wearing into the steel punch out of the stove. There is supposed to be a plastic protective sleeve in this area, but on mine it was out of position. On mine the copper was slightly worn due to vibration and would have eventually worn through if I hadn't caught it.
