ShurFlo Water Pump

I have a 2001 Winnebago Brave 32'

Went to winterize using the factory installed bypass/hose and the water pump does not pump. It comes on, but nothing else. Took the in-line filter off with no luck. I am assuming the pump is bad. It is most likely old and has not been used in years (we bought the rv used). Also, someone accidentally turned it on a while back and it ran dry for an unknown length of time.

I have a ShurFlo 2088-404-144, 2.5 gpm, 7.0 A max, 40 psi.
I want to replace it with ShurFlo 4008-101-E65, 3 gpm, 7.5 A max, 55 psi.

Is that enough of an increase in pressure to matter? Not sure what these rv's are rated for.

There is also a model rated for 2 gpm, 5.0 A max, 50 psi. I would prefer the one above as it is cheaper on Amazon.

Any help advice would be appreciated.

First of all can you see your water pump and is it easy to get to?
If you can see the line coming into the pump from the holding tank and the tank has water in it I would try it out by turning the pump on and as you do take a look at where the water comes into the pump there should be a valve between the pump and the holding tank which is use to drain the tank if need be it may of been left open for the water to drain from the tank and if so thats why the pump is not getting any water.
Check to make sure their is water in the tank then check the pump.
I had to replaced mine after about 10 years.
Good luck.
Just a thought.

I am trying to pump directly from a jug of antifreeze. The switch is turned so that it should pump it directly out on the jug into the plumbing of the rv.

Did it pump water from your fresh water tank just fine and now it won't pump with the by-pass? Maybe you should see if it will pump from the tank just to make sure it's not working? They can run dry for quite a long time without hurting them. A little higher pump rating shouldn't hurt your plumbing system but make sure your amp draw is similar.

Call Winnobego and find out what their system PSI is tested to. Fleetwood told me they test to 80 PSI. I doubt 55 PSI is going to hurt anything, but I'd still call them.
