Water Pump Runs Constantly

We have a 2 year old Travelite PU Camper. The water pump runs all the time, even though we are running no fixtures to call for water. I thought maybe something was stuck in the pump head, and replaced the whole pump - same problem.

With no outlet for the water, it ends up leaking out the toilet supply (the lowest fixture). I disconnected the short toilet water supply line, and it runs out the pipe that would flow to the toilet. I've checked every valve (I can see anyway) and I can't get it to shut off.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi JJoker,
Welcome to iRV2. Is there a lever you turn to fill your water tank and then turn it back to the position it was originally in? If so, put the lever in the position that does not allow the fresh water tank to be filled.

sounds to me like there is something wrong with the toilet valve. the pump shuts off on pressure if the toilet valve leakes it would not alow the pressure to bildup enuph to shut the pump off lee

There is no level to prevent the tank from being filled. You stick a hose in the side inlet and it runs right into the FW tank.

Lee, it was leaking out the back of the toilet (not much) which I first thought was the problem. So I suppose disconnecting the supply hose to the toilet would not build up any pressure. I'll check it again. Maybe the valve is the issue?

Ball Valve

The ball valve seems to be the suspect. Tracking one down today, so we'll see. Wasn't as hard taking the toilet out as I thought it might be, so that was good. Thanks for the advice!
