I just purchased a 2000 Jayco 266FBS TT and it has 3 switches for the water pump. (kitchen, bath, outside shower). However, I can't seem to turn the pump off. The pump switches are all lit regardless of the orientation. I pulled the fuse for the moment. Is there a relay somewhere that controls the pump? I didn't see anything obvious.
thanks.

Hi, ToddStyles. Welcome to iRV2.com. I don't have an outside shower on my 266FBS so there are only two switches (kitchen & bath).

From your posting, it sounds like you might have two problems.

The first: "The pump switches are all lit regardless of the orientation"

If the power light remains on when all three switches are off I think that would be an indication of either a faulty switch or wiring problem.

The second: "I can't seem to turn the pump off"

I looked through my SHURflo manual and here's their troubleshooting check list for "Pump will not shut-off / runs when faucet is closed". Check:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Output side (pressure) plumbing for leaks and inspect for leaky valves or toilet.
<LI>For air trapped in outlet side (water heater) or pump head.
<LI>For correct voltage to pump (+/- 10%).
<LI>For loose drive assembly or pump head screws.
<LI>Are the valves or internal check valve held open by debris or is rubber swollen?
<LI>Pressure switch operation/adjustment incorrect, refer to shut-off adjustment for switch.[/list]Give these a try.

Thanks for the info. Here's what I found out after pulling all the switches and tracing the wiring. There is a main pump switch located on the monitor panel. If it's turned on, none of the other switches will turn off the pump. If the main switch is off, you can turn on the pump from either of the other two switches, but you must turn that switch back off when you are finished. Seems kind of odd, but that's how it's wired. The pump is working fine now that I know how the switches are wired.
thanks again.

ToddStyles:

I pulled my TT out of the mine over the weekend and was able to confirm how my switches work.

I found that turning on either switch (in the bathroom or on the monitor panel in the kitchen) will turn the pump on. However, both switches must be off in order to disable the pump.
