Just call Sure Flow and tell them your problem. They are the best folks to work with on these troubles. They sent me two kits once to fix two problems on two different pumps. Totally free of any charges.

Check to be sure there are no obstructions of the water getting to the pump. If not you may need help or a kit to rebuild. Let us know the outcome. Thanks

Medic318... yes, please let us know what, if anything, you find out from Sure Flow. I had a similar problem right after I purchased my coach, and the dealer just replaced the pump. The pump running on it's own never happened again, but I've had another problem that seems to come and go.

From time to time the pump hesitates before it starts up. In other words normally when the pressure begins to drop the pump should start and you normally don't even realize it. But in this case the water completely stops flowing, then after about 5 seconds or so the pumps finally kicks on and everythings okay again.

I've called Sure Flow, but haven't gotten any concrete answers. I've checked everything for obstructions, leaks, etc. to no avail.

Well did I get a plesant surprise I phoned Shurflo and they went above and beyond the call of duty I had contacted the local Dealer who was unwilling to help (stated they had not sold me the pump or rig so no help here) I then contacted Shurflo again they phoned around B.C. found a dealer that would help (45 miles away) but he had no stock. Shurflo then phoned there suppliers and made arragment for an overnight express delivery to the dealer in Vernon, Vernon RV then phoned me to tell me my replacement pump would be there in the morning now thats what I call service

I'm having that problem with 2 different 5.7 pumps right now. I've had two different people at ShurFlo tell me they will check with their engineers and call me back. The last one two weeks ago. No one has called back yet. There is nothing to replacing them two quick connects and one ground wire to splice. The hot wire justs connects to the fuse. Even "I" can't screw that up. lol

Would you please post your results with the cause when/if the tech gets is solved.

TIA

Ron

We took the motorhome out of town for 5 days this past week and stayed at my brothers farm. I didn't hook up to his water and so had to use our on-board water and of course the pump.

The darn thing worked perfectly these 5 days. I really like this pump as long as it's working right. It barely runs unless you use a large amount of water like flushing the toilet or running the shower. When you run a faucet you hardly hear it.

What ever my problem has been I hope it's gone, but I fear its not.

Well, I finally called Shur Flo back this morning. They are going to send me a different type unit this week. We'll see how that works.

Just a suggestion, did you take apart the filter bowl. I've seen where the screen in there has become totally blocked with a thin calcium type material.

I tried to take the bowl off but was unable to get it to spin I was scared I would break it so did not continue does it in fact come off for future reference As you can see from my previous post that Shurflo replaced the unit at no cost

It sounds to me like the Shurflo folks have taken a page out of the customer relations manual written by the Fantastic Vent Company. Nice to know. Thank you.

Maybe I can revive this thread with a new question ...

My current 5.7 was installed in Sep 06. I am a fulltimer and often use the water pump to supplement the shore water pressure for showers. A couple of days ago after a shower I discovered the pump was not shutting completely down, but was running at a very slow "idle" speed.

I found no faucets on and no leaks, so read the info that came with the pump and adjusted the "switch shut-off" screw to the point that the pump would shut down after running. But now I find that it does not come on to assist the low water pressure as it did before. I tinkered with it more today and am not having any real success.

Any suggestions? Does the switch go bad, or perhaps have a rubber diaphram inside that may go bad?
