Water Pump

I have a 2013 Fleetwood Bounder classic. Having issues with water pump surging. Hooked to shore water, holding tank is full and using two water filters. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Ron

By 'holding tank' do you mean your fresh water tank? Is the surging present at all faucets, hot and cold? Check the strainer between water tank and pump, also you might remove and clean aerators at each faucet. Surging can best be smoothed out if all else has been eliminated by adding a pressure tank. A pressure tank has a rubber bladder in it to use air to even out the pressure. If you have one installed, the air might need adjusting, a common problem on well water systems. Also, if you have 2 filters, one could be clogged, restricting flow.

Just to understand; do you mean you're using your onboard water pump while attached to city water pressure?

I wondered the same thing, but didn't ask. When on city water, the line pressure should be plenty and the pump should be off. Pump is only used when not hooked up to a pressurized hose. Also, some systems have a valve that must be set from water tank to city water, you do not want to pressurize or overfill the water tank, it can bulge and cause structural damage or even burst.
