2012 Mirada Fresh water pump issue

Does anyone have experience replacing the fresh water pump in a 2012 Coachmen Mirada 31df? The pump is located in the wet bay behind a tight fitting panel that has all the water service connections attached. I have loosened the panel but due to its size, shape and the various water connections I can only move it slightly downward. Moving it downward does open a small area above and I can see the pump, but only reach it with great difficulty. Currently I am at a loss as to how I can remove the current pump with its water and power connections and the install a new one. I am contemplating cutting an access port on the panel but only as a last resort. Any advice would be welcome.

I may not be much help, because our 2011 Mirada has the water pump in the bay forward of the wet bay so the access is very easy.
What I will note is that if you can hear the pump running, you may just have an air lock in the lines. We get that if we leave the pump running while driving with a low level of water in the tank. To get it working again, we open the drain valve in the hose from the tank to the pump. Once the air is out, the pump works again.

I can relate! I have a 94 Georgie Boy (bought out by Coachman). My pump was mounted to the back wall in the wet bay behind the facilities panel. I had to tear the panel out and refab it and remount everything. I re-routed the pex water lines and moved the pump to a more easily accessed location.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sorry, I don't know anything about the Mirada! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
