Water pump

I am starting a new thread as not to offend anyone.

the simple question:

should the water pump when running shake the trailer?

Mine has done this since the day I bought it. I did bring it up during a warranty check and was told that was normal. I wonder if I were to purchase a better pump if it would react the same shaky way or be must quieter?

anyone have a similiar situation before???

My pump will occasionally make a slight shudder when it has reached pressure, it's more of a sound, but it does not shake the coach.

This is a common complaint with these pumps. Better soundproof mounting has been recommended as well as running a lope of flexible hose on the output side of the pump.

Both our Trailers had that problem, we solved it by extending the length of the output hose on the pump. I added 16" to the total length. worked for us.
