Newbie in an Oldie (Winnie Chieftain 22 - 1988) needing help
Probably like many folks, I decided to look to others 'cause I'm in need of some help........
My wife and I bought an old Winnebago (Chieftain 22 - 1988) as a fall-back should our fiscal situation worsen...which it did...had to sell our home in TX...decided to try and move back to CA.
'Ol "Woody" got us to CA around Christmas without a hitch --although we're living with a few minor(?) glitches that I hope to remedy before they get 'major'.
#1 on my list is a "hidden" water-leak. When we first bought it, we found that the floor in front of the shower/commode area was "spongy". Discovered that there apparently had been a water probem sometime in Woody's past; we had the deteriorated floor section replaced and tiled back over ---assuming the original problem had long been remedied.
Came to find out that that we've still got a slow leak somewhere........... I first noticed that when connected to shore water for several hours (with pressure-reduced to 40psi), there was a slow drip coming from the rear wheel-well area that would stop about 20 minutes after I shutoff the shore water. Yet I could not detect any leaking anywhere inside the coach.
I decided to consider it an annoyance to look into later and just live with it by using on-board water via the ShurFlo pump system. After awhile I started to notice similar dripping as well as the pump cycling 'on' for a few seconds (when there was no demand) a couple of times an hour.
so now we turn on the pump only when we want water-flow and then turn it off.
Nevertheless, we've noticed that the pump is getting louder and slower with a corresponding drop in the pressure/flow out of the spigots.
My frustration is: I CAN'T EVEN FIND READY ACCESS TO THE PUMP!! I have no info that tells me where it is and how to get to it although it's obviously somewhere near the driver's side bathroom vanity ---perhaps under the small adjacent wardrobe???
I don't want to start tearing things out looking for it, but have yet to find any info on specifically where it is and how to get to it without ripping out things unnecessarily!
Can anyone help?!??
Thanks, in advance!
