My question: If there are no apparent leaks now am I out of the woods
or could a leak start in a few days?? In 1 week I'm going on a 14 da

That many joints with no leaks is very good for a newbie. Congratulations.
That's definitely a good record! IF you don't have leaks now,
you're not likely to have any problems. Besides, a small leak
wouldn't be catastrophic anyway, would it?
How about asking someone trusted to check on the house a couple
times while you're away? Easier said than done, I know<g>.
