Water pump

We are relatively new to RVing...we have a new 2012 Dutchmen Denali 270 FK. Last weekend we had our first "Dry" camping adventure.
We found that the water pump is quite noisy and sometimes continues to run after we turn off the water, until I turn a faucet on and off a couple of times. I've come to learn that the service dept at the dealership is worthless.
I'd like to hear your comments/suggestions. Is there a pressure setting on the pump that might be adjusted if I can locate the pump... maybe air in the lines?

Start by looking at the water lines at pump. They often are touching the camper frame work and when the pump is on they vibrate and resonate loud sounds.
Try to re route and or use insulating foam.

For the running extended periods after use it sounds as if there's air in the lines. Try purging all lines of air

We do a lot of dry camping. The water pump turns off when we turn the faucet off. We also turn the pump off if we leave the inside of the trailer for any length of time. Finally, because we do a lot of remote dry camping, we carry a spare water pump- just in case.
