We're thinking about upgrading our stock Shurflo water pump to a Flojet VSD ( I think that is what is called) and was wondering if anyone else had done this and if there's anything we need to know?

When I replace mine, I'll strongly consider this one:
Aquajet ES pump

I've heard it's better than the Shurflows and Flowjets, and doesn't require wiring mods.

Hey racegirl! Long time no see...glad to have ya back!

Sorry I don't have anything to offer on the pump- I don't have any problems with our stock one. But I'll cross-link this to the system forum so you can get some better exposure and some more answers!

Good seeing ya! Take care.

We're not having any problems with our stock one either. But the thought of it going out while camping out in the desert has made me want a back up. (Did that with the fuel pump gears and boy was I glad I did). And we figured if we're going to buy one, might as well get a quieter one right?

Thanks for the welcome back...actually never left...have been lurking for a long time. Just never figured I had anything constructive to add, lol.

Thanks for the recommendation, it looks like a great pump. This is a mod I'll be doing before spring.

Don't let that stop you. I have over 500 posts and haven't had an original thought yet.

Before you make a decision, look at the full load amp draw. If I remember correctly the Flojet draws a lot more amps than the Shurflow. If you are on full hookups, then it doesn't matter. But Most people use the pump when boon docking and then battery power is limited, so every amp counts.
