Changing water pump

We have a 2003 Fleetwood Excursion and would like some input on changing water pump from 3 gpm to maybe larger gpm. Any ideas or thoughts are appreciated. We recently posted about current pump surging and appreciated the response, just checking all the options. Thanks

You could look into installing a surge tank to stop the surging and allow the pump to run less often, I think some here have done this with good results.

I installed a surge tank in my rig. This is what I used:

Pre-Pressurized Steel Water Expansion Tank-DET-5 at The Home Depot

Its tiny, but allows me to flush the toilet without the pump coming on, and really smooths out water delivery. Just 'T' it in the cold water supply anywhere that is convenient. A vast improvement, and especially appreciated when someone has to visit the head in the middle of the night.

Swapping out the water pump is straightforward as well. Just buy the one you want, disconnect the old one, and connect the new one in its place. No magic to it.
