I posted in the slide in camper area but didn't get any response and maybe someone here can help. I just need to know what size pump to put in my skamper slide in. The holding tank doesnt look very big, guessing 10ish gallons. What GPM pump should i put in? I'm planning on buying a used one from ebay because money is tight for us right now. I've seen 1GPM and 2.8GPM and bigger. With a small tank i dont want to use the water to fast. We only have a sink.Thanks

Even the lowest GPM pump should work fine. Water consumption isn't affected by the size of the pump as much as it is by water useage.

However water pressure (force of water from the faucet) is. The higher the GPM the higher the pressure. And as previously stated, how long you leave the water on really controls useage.
