Water pump won’t stop cycling

After picking up my 2017 Anthem from storage yesterday I noticed my water pump was not stopping and was very hot to the touch, so I turned off the pump while parked at my house. This morning it seemed fine but now is again acting up and not stopping even though there is no water running. Is my pump possibly going bad?

I appreciate any ideas on what I can try.

Kory

Recently mine did the same. I went to the water bay and turned on the shower spray for a few seconds, turned it off and the pump stopped. It has behaved itself since. Worth a try.

Make sure the tank fill valve is on city water. I would cycle that valve. Check the winterize valve and make sure it’s not open. Turn on all faucets and run water through them to prime the system. Shut everything off and monitor to see if the issue comes back. If it stopped and then came back, check to see if you have any water dripping or leaking anywhere.

Ok, since the pump was running all the time, and you didn't have a puddle of water underneath, that pretty much eliminates a leak. You didn't say if you had water at the faucets. If no, likely a bad pump or a bad diaphragm on the pump. If all this is fine, that generally leaves it being air in the line. Oh, a stupid question just occurred to me, do have water in the tank? I've learned never to assume anything.😁

Water pump won’t stop cycling

Update:

I reviewed both articles shared with me and tried all that was suggested but that pump just kept working until it got hot enough and just stopped.

What is interesting is that I always had good pressure in the coach at all the faucets including the outside shower but after pressurizing they line the pump just kept going.

The tank was 3/4 full so plenty of water and my fill knob was in the correct position….I store mine at NIRVC in Lewisville and so they are going to take a look at for me this week. It could be a stuck valve or just a bad pump about to quit on me.

I’ll update the group so we’ll know, it should be later this week.

Thank you all for the ideas you’ve shared.

On the pump is a check valve that has 2 tiny screws. One of those screws can be turned and will adjust the flow that goes through the check valve and stop it from cycling

One of the screws on the pump is a bypass screw. Not the one on the pressure switch, but the one to the side. My guess is it's bypassing water currently. Turn the a screw 1/2 - 1 full turn one way or another and it should stop if you've verified all other items.
