Best water pump?

I'm in need of a new water pump. Anyone know what size wire Monaco used to wire the water pump of a 2001 Dynasty?

I'm thinking of upgrading the pump and Latching Controller (currently 7.5 amp) to 10 amp.

I've gone through a few pumps but the best in my pinion is the Remco 55AQUAJET-ARV Aquajet RV Variable Speed Water Pump. It is not the quietest but is silent when properly vibration isolated. It also has enough pressure to operate my RO water filter.
You need to calculate the current requirements for the pump you select then the wire size. I did not need to upgrade the wiring when I went to the Remco. YMMV

Our '06 Dynasty uses what sounds like the same basic pump that DtBt is talking about, and we really like the pump. Times two on the vibration isolation. The fact is, I pulled ours from the vertical plank it was installed on and laid it on the compartment floor with some waffle-mesh like padding under it, and flexible hose in and out, and the ONLY place in the coach that you can ever hear it is in the bathroom directly above it. It never moves! Been about five years, now.

The feed for power on our '06 is a #12 copper conductor. That will be way more than plenty. The feed point is thru a 15 amp fuse which will even protect a #14, so if you go with the #12 it should work great for you.

Ok...thread drift. The, accumulator tank, you have me intrigued.
I see some tanks require added air pressure, others are preset (I need).
I see several tanks listed under that part number.

The data sheet for the accumulator says to set the tank pressure at the cut-in pressure for the pump.

A couple of points:

1) The maximum pressure for this tank is 125 psi. For safety, the P&T relief valve on the hot water tank should be reduced to a 100 or 125 psi model, if failure of any plumbing components could lead to pressures above 125 psi at the accumulator. I for one would not count on check valves to prevent over-pressures, as check valves can fail open.

2) I put in the accumulator to eliminate P&T valve weeping because I could not get the hot water tank to retain the air pocket. See this post for details. Any smoother pump performance I get is incidental. I set the accumulator pressure after using an online calculator to determine the pressure that would be needed to create the substitute "air pocket" volume in the accumulator bladder. The tool also told me I needed a minimum volume of 1 liter, which is why I picked that Jabsco model. Unhappily, this online tool is no longer available.

I'm wary of taking this thread off-topic. Could you send me a private message pointing out where you see the the "several tanks" listed for the Jabsco part number 30573-0000?
