Replacing the House water pump

Hello fellow RVer's,
On vacation this past week and the house water pump goes out. Safe to say, the wife was not happy that the shower, toilet and sinks were now down to "bucket washing" in the RV.
I have taken the "broken" pump out, it is a "Shurflo Model/part number 2088-422-174". Looking around the Shurflo site, the closest one is "Shurflo Fresh Water Pump Model 2088-554-144". This looks to be a little more powerful and I am wondering if this would be the correct replacement part? I don't want to take it back to the RV repair shop, as I would guess the cost would be $150 plus shop time so close to $300-350 and I think I can do it myself.

Any suggestions or pointers would be appreciated!
Happy RVing!
Don "The Ham"

The Shurflo conversion chart that I am looking at says that the 2088-422-174 has been replaced by 4008-101-F65 REVOLUTION™ 3.0 12V OEM.

Before you change the pump, make sure that is the problem. Check the voltage going to the pump and make sure you have 12 volts. Putting in a stronger pump will not cause problems. The wiring for all of them is the same. (maybe a Prevost with a super duper double head 200 psi pump might need heavier wire.)

After some quick Googling I found that model 4008-101-F65 is the replacement for your existing pump.

HERE is the Shur-Flo Pump Conversion Chart.

Personally I don't like ANY Shur-Flo RV Pump.

I highly recommend the Aqua-Jet which comes in two models, one which is lower amps and fewer gpm and one which is higher amps and over 5 gpm.

HERE are the two Aqua-Jet models.

55AQUAJET-AES (3.4 gpm)

55AQUAJET-ARV (5.3 gpm)

Look under Configurations & SPEC's tabs for more information.

Definitely a DIY job

Greetings Don,

As long as you have a little room to work around the fittings this should be a fairly easy DIY replacement and very straight forward. Some simple wiring and a little Teflon pipe tape and you will be back to Happy Wife = Happy Life!
One caution, Don't overtighten the fittings since they will probably be plastic.
If you can, get the old pump out and take it with you to compare to what the local RV Stores have in stock. If they don't have "exactly" your replacement you can find one with similar orientation of the inlet/outlet and then pick your preferred GPM and you will soon be up and running. Good Luck!
