water pump

Hi,

We just did some remodeling to our coach and we were just putting the plumbing all back together and checking for leaks, which was fine, but the water pump doesn't seem to want to turn off by itself. Any ideas?

Thanks so much! You have all been a great help in the past with the little issues we have come across.'

Could be a pump adjustment if you have a variable speed/bypass pump but based on your description I suspect you hooked something up wrong or left a valve open that should be closed. Check to make sure your fill valve is closed. Then check your winterization valves. If that isn't it you may have cross connected your supply line to the return line.

I think your selector switch for tank fill / city water needs to be on city water. What year is your coach?

It sounds like it's pushing air. The air needs to be purged out.

I second the selector valve location. Should be in the "City Water" position, not the "Fill Tank" position. Most (all?) of us have made the same error at one time or another.

But, also: Is there sufficient water in tank?

I think both the previous suggestions may be the problem. Purge the water lines by running the pump and opening each tap in turn until water runs out. This includes the hot water tank, toilet etc. Then make sure the input selector is set on "city" and not "tank fill".

If you are willing to share, what was the problem? Knowing would help other readers avoid the same issue.

Fill/ City Water was the problem. Had it on fill. Easy fix. Thanks everyone for all your help. You have all been great with our little issues that have come up.
