Shurflo Water Pump
 
Does anyone know what the difference is between Shurflo water pump 4008-101-E65 and 4008-101-F65? I have e-mailed the company and I am waiting a response.

Are they interchangeable?

I have the F65 version on my motorhome. When searching online, I see a lot of E65 versions and only a couple F65 versions.

Thanks :thumb:

Are you able to view your pump? Most are two wires that provide 12 volt power and an inlet and outlet water line. They may look different on where the pump is located and attached to the motor but the bulk of them are all the same. I am considering replacing my current (less than 2 year old) pump that cycles very often when using the sinks with a pump that adjusts it's speed and continues to run and equalizes the pressure throughout it's minimum to maximum flow rates. It will be a month or two have to empty the 100 gallons of fresh water first. Don't want to waste it on the ground.

The belt driven pump which I have is a $600 pump, but it has a lot of power for my 5 plumbing fixtures which include 2 sinks, water heater, 1 toilet, tub and shower. The new kind might be a stand alone motor with no belt. These cost about $100 bucks.

Yes.. I can view my water pump. The E65 and F65 look identical to the naked eye. The label on each motor appear to have to the same specifications, but I am assuming there must be a difference because of the different model numbers.

One might be a new year than the other. A company can put out the same pump for many years but might change the model number on newer years.

It's probably just an older version. If you were happy with the performance of your old pump then the newer model should be a straight exchange. If you need a higher volume or perhaps a variable speed model, now might be a good time to switch. I looked at the Sureflo website and I didn't see your old pump even listed.

lappir--

Hi Rod-

If your pump has a phillips head screw on the bottom of the unit, turn it slighty while the water is running until it runs steady.

It works for me--:dance:

Both are 3 GPM and 55 PSI with a 7.5 amp motor. Yes they are interchangeable.

The E version seems to be more readily available. And is considered new replacement for older discontinued models.

Thank you for all the responses. I sent an e-mail to Shurflo Customer Service. There response was;

"The F65 is the same as the E65 except that the F65 has a special wire connector that the RV Manufacturer wants to make their installation easier."

This is probably why the F65 is harder to find. I would most likely have to go to a Winnebago parts supplier for the F65 pump. I think the E65 and a few wire nuts should work.

Thanks
John

Speaking of which. Now might be a good time to run and drain all the water out of your system. We have a cold winter storm headed in, in the next couple of days. So I went out to storage today. Switched my power to battery, opened the sewer vavles (since my tanks are already empty) and ran the fresh water pump until all the water was expailed from the system. I also blew the water out of the traps in the sinks. Important to get all traces of water out of the system before temps drop to freezing. This will have an effect on your pumps life span.

John,

I know it's been awhile, but did the E65 work or did you have to make modifications to it? Just ran into the same problem and I have an F65 model. Any help would be appreciated.

If I remember correctly, the E65 and F65 are the same. The F65 has the connector Winnebago uses. If you purchase the E65, you will have to cut the connector off and wire nut or butt connect the the wires together. No big deal and if I remember the E65 was cheaper and easier to find.
