New water pump

Looks like I need a new water pump. Mine seems to be overheating very easily, then stops working until it cools down.

Any thoughts on which one is best? Or are they all the same?

Thanks!

On a 2015 model MH, if your water pump is overheating, then there is a reason; I've owned 2 motorhomes over the past 27 years, and only had 1 pump fail. Is the filter on the inlet side clogged?

As to which one...if your original has (had?) sufficient pressure, then I'd replace it with the same model.

It can happen but it's definitely not common for a water pump to go bad on a 2 year old rig. How are you able to tell it's the water pump? Could it be something more simple such as the thermostat? Maybe the clutch on the engine fan?

Replace it with a REMCO Aqua-Jet model. They have two.

An AES model with 3.4 gpm and an ARV with 5.3 gpm.

Mine is the ARV model.

Thanks, I'll check out the Remco!

I'm talking about the pump for the coach water, not the engine. I was driving in really hot conditions the other day and left the pump switch 'on'. When we stopped, the pump was acting strange. I went to check it and it was super hot (as was the whole compartment). Since then it hasn't been working very well and gets hot when turned on even when not being used. Figured I'd upgrade to a nicer pump while I have the chance.

I believe the ARV model draws more current than the AES model. You can probably just swap yours for the AES model without to many modifications. Your wiring will probably run the AES model as is. I installed the AES model on mine.

Not that it is a big deal, but just realize you may have to cut off the electrical connector that connects to the water pump. They are usually specific to the motorhome maker. Make sure you have a few wire nuts or wire connectors available.

Ha ha - no worries, the engine water pump will probably fail next!

I ended up ordering a Shurflo 4008 based on the recommendation of a few Outlaw owners. The REMCO Aquajet looks great but was a little too pricey for me. Hopefully the new pump will arrive soon and I can get it installed.
