Not following the reasoning. If a MH water pump is in use, then you are boondocking or in a park with less than full hook-ups. Endurance, the number of days before you need to seek water, will be in proportion to water conservation. Why then remove the aerators or run a faucet while taking a shower in order to stop the pump from cycling? The pump is simply functioning as designed. Increasing water usage will decrease or stop the cycling, but at the expense of boondocking endurance plus frequent dump station stops. My pump was mounted (a poor job at Camping World I might add) to the coach's frame. It was noisy and cycled rapidly in low demand situations. An accumulation tank solved the issues. Noise greatly reduced, no rapid cycling, rock steady pressure, allows for water conservation and fewer dump station stops. All for a small investment in time and money.
