Many board members have had their pump motors repaired at a local automotive generator/starter motor repair shop. The HWH pump is a variation of a starter motor. Many truck lift gate motors are very similar. It is not rocket science in that it requires a return trip to Moscow, IA.

Boy-oh-boy does this ever sound familiar! I just went through this dilemma, from attempted rebuild to new replacement (didn't work) to new assembly install. On the rebuild attempt; left my motor with a local shop for 10-12 days, result was that 2 of their supply houses could not match nor supply the brush housing tail piece. They, as well as I were dumbfounded. So, I order a new motor (HWH has it listed as "obsolete") that I readily found online (same p/n). It arrives but is no match. Same mounting configuration, same electrically as the old but the armature slotted shaft was way too long. I posted pictures of this problem here on this forum somewhere. If I knew how to link them here to this discussion I would.
End result, new motor/pump/reservoir assembly installed and all is well.
For me, space was not an issue and the new replaced the old quite handily, same space, same mounting holes used etc. so that was one big relief since HWH was advising that I may have to reconfigure the bracketry for the new assembly (thankyou Winnebago for the room to work).
Best of luck to you!!!!!!!! Should you be able to get your motor rebuilt, you'll be miles ahead of me in solving your problem.

fxdave, if your 200 series is like mine, once you pull the 2 allenhead bolts out of the motor and pull it, the slot adapter w/spring will come out with it and.....if you're like me, it will fall directly to the ground and roll away leaving you wondering what you just lost.
Look at the pictures I've linked to in the other thread, you'll see the slot adapter and spring.
The assembly replacement was a breeze due to Winnebago's mounting. I had plenty of room for the new assembly to mount using the existing brackets. I simply loosened the screw clamp that holds the solenoid to the motor and slid the motor out. Loosened the 2 mounting bolts holding the assembly to the bracket. Removed the 3 long bolts that hold the hydraulic manifold on the top of the pump and wire tied it up out of the way. I didn't loosen or remove any hydraulic line. Then I removed the pre loosened mounting bolts and remove the pump/reservoir assembly. I don't think I lost a thimble full of ATF fluid doing this job. Any other question fire away and I'll try to help.

fx,
to test the motor, I was told by HWH to turn on the system at the panel and then follow the 2 wires from the joystick grounding plate, into the wheel well and find the electrical connection point. Disconnect the pigtail from that point and then use a pair of needlenose pliers to jumper the connection end that leads away into the wiring harness. By jumpering this electrical connection, the motor should run. Mine did not and was proof that the motor was bad.
If you think you have a loose wiring problem, be sure to use star washers and tighten every connection. It's very easy to snap a post on the solenoid while tightening so be careful. For a quick check, make up a jumper wire with a couple of alligator clips on each end. Put this in place to make a good ground and see what happens.
