Halinhazmat your discovery sounds like it may be a solution to my problem. When i turn my pump off and open any sink faucet water continues to come out until the pressure is gone. It did not used to do this, before when the pump was off and I opened a faucet nothing came out. Also now when I turn the pump on after the pressure has been depleted the pump makes more noise than it used to. What do you think?

I have the same motorhome. Mine is a 32 ft GB Pursuit. If yours is like mine you should have a water distribution panel wit 4 valves. Black, red, blue and whatever the last color is? Any way follow the scematic that is printed on the board. It explains in what position is needed to fill the tank and what position is need for city/pump position. Let me know if you have this type of setup if you do I can send you pictures of the correct positions.

saddlecreek I'm not sure we are talking apples to apples. I do have a two position valve, (1) when using city water and water pump water it is on one position and (2) when filling the tank it is on the other position. I have owned this MH for 4 years without problems until recently. I suspect the water pump, Sureflo 2.8 gpm CW #20066 $80. They sell a replacement head for $55. But I'm just not sure if in fact it is the water pump. Maybe a call to Camping World (CW) would shed some light on the problem.

It sounds the same as my PA, and most others.

If the fill valve (labelled BYPASS VALVE on my fleetwood) is in the fill position, the pump should be left off, and city water pressure will fill the onboard tank. If the pump is switched on, it will run continuously and not make any pressure.

I had a different occurance with similar symptoms, pump was running much longer than normal, and pressure and flow was very low. There is an inlet strainer on the pump, and mine was clogged with nasty black goopy stuff. Easyt to remove and clean, take the inlet fitting off by hand, then give the front of the pump a twist and it and the screen come right off.

Water Pump

I had a problem with the water pump not shutting off and after several checks of various sites, no leaks, etc. I found that the fresh water tankmwas low on water. Put waqter in the tank and the pump works like it always has. Sometimes you just need to check the obvious.

You might try putting a shutoff like used on a hose on the water inlet.It would prevent air being sucked in.
