Sometimes removing the pump and reinstalling it with a piece of foam rubber between it and the wall/floor will help. Also, make sure the plastic lines that run from the pump aren't vibrating against the floor/wall. If they are, a little foam rubber tucked here and there to keep them away will help.

Not sure of the brand of w/p you have but some may be quieter than others. The foam pad idea is a good one if you want to try something that is not too expensive and may work. Another alternative if you have access to the plumbing it to move it to an area inside one of the storage cabinets. Close to the water tank is good. There are some slightly quieter pumps on the market as well.

I've seen kits on line to add a loop of flexible hose between the pump and the stiff plastic pipe, which are supposed to reduce noise.

Pump Silence Kit

There are also RV specific accumulator tanks that are reasonably priced and might cure your pulsation.

Shurflow Accumulator tank

The other choice might be one of the smart sensor pumps that are supposed to be quieter and vary speed based on demand. If you google "RV water pump smart", you will hit on all kinds of retailers. Here's one.

Smart Sensor pump

Mine is kind of noisy and can pulsate if the kitchen cold tap is opened abruptly, and I thought about upgrading, but I guess I got used to it and forgot about it...
