Replacing water pump with Macerator equipped wet bay

I really don't like the OEM water pump in my 2019. Would like a pump that does not pulse as bad, and a longer duty cycle. Has anyone installed a new pump with the sanicon installed in front? It looks near impossible without removing the sanicon first? Has anyone replaced theirs with a similar coach and what issues am I facing?


As always TIA,


John

Pick up a 2.5 gallon, hot water, accumulator tank and Tee it into a cold water line, anywhere in the system.

No more short cycling water pump.

On both my Dutch Stars, I added the FlowJet VSP (variable speed pump). On my 2019, I left the OEM pump in place on the side wall. I mounted the new pump on the floor of the wet bay, to the far left as you're looking in. The hoses from the old pump had enough slack to directly attach to the new pump. I cut the wires and added connectors so I could power either the new pump or return them to the old pump if I had a failure. I capped the ends of the old pump.

My sanicon is also right in front of the pump, which is way back in the left corner.....or was. I just replaced my pump and moved it. I had to find the four screws on the mount "blind" by feeling for them, but I got it out without pulling the sanicon. Your mileage may vary.


One thing I have never liked that Newmar does is to have a wet bay with absolutely no physical division between sewage stuff and freshwater stuff. To me that's not good design.
