Help with 2004 Dutch Star waterpump

Hello
2004 Dutch Star waterpump not working. I did check the fuse in the compartment in the bedroom and fuse is good.

What should I do to find out if i need to replace the pump with the same or if there is better than the 'shurflo.
Thank you

Hi IamGadget,
Consider a Remco brand pump. I have found Shur-Flo pumps, over the past few years, to be substandard. The Remco pump works perfectly. To check the pump, determine if there is 12V getting to the pump. If there is voltage in then the appliance is suspect.

We are traveling with friends that have a 2004 DS. Their water pump quit. Found a replacement from same manufacture but with more GPH than original. I installed the pump for him. All the mounting places were the same. If you have power to the motor and its not pumping time to replace.

Ours is an 2001 and I do not have extended insurance. I did investigate getting some and the cost was over 6K per year. I do not remember what company would insure it. Decided it was not worth it.

Have you checked the pump control module that sits next to the pump? Newmar will have you test it to see if that is the issue.

Thank you....I did not know about a control module. Do I just test it to see if it has power by using a meter on the wires?

Hi IamGadget,
Don't think you have a control module. Pump works off the PSI in the line.
