RV Upgrades has a Flo-Jet 4.5 GPM pump for $161.71. I have been looking for a leak in my wet bay and it appears to stop/slow when I turn off the water. I guess I need to order a new pump.

Yes I got the one at cw for $190.00 plus I had a credit there of $30.00 so it only cost me 160.00, but of course when you are at the superstore you tend to spend more, stocked up on all my cleaners and chemicals and bought a few odds and ends left with a $324.76 bill lol

Yes Jim, I buy stuff that I need at CW and stuff I didn't know I needed.

if you leave the water pump on and city water is selected, will the pump help with pressure and flow? or are they separate lines?

I always get better flow with city water than with the pump. My thought would be that pump will just get in the way if it were same line. If it is same line I don't think pump would help. But then I've not tried that. Ha

Boy, I'm really feeling clueless right about now! When would you need to use the water pump? We had one on our gas unit, but never used it. We always plugged into the water line at CGs and that was it.

How would I even know if my water pump is damaged or not?

Do you ever use any water at home. To wash dishes or use the coach ?? If not I guess you don't need the pump. We stay places without water or power quite a lot.

New to the Forum

Hello,
I've been reading this Forum for about 2 months after getting my Palazzo. I received a lot of good info and tips and thought it was about time to join.
We got a new 36.1 in June. A little confusing since a number of threads refer to 2014. My bill of sale states 2013.
Well, we love the DP, had a Class C before, would not go back. I think the Palazzo offers good value but there have been a number of annoying small issues to deal with. From reading this Forum, others have had the issues also.
I look forward to corresponding with everyone and sharing issues and solutions.

One issue that seems unlikely to be resolved is that on this site, under "Manufacturers, Thor". There are at least four Palazzo threads. How do you keep up with them?
Happy to be on board,
Jim Grove

Interesting thought. I get better pressure in the shower with the pump running.
Think I need to full some fixtures to check for junk in the lines.

Do you remember to switch to City Inlet on the selector valve?
The water pump pressure is nowhere near what comes out of most water outlets. I have a pressure regulator to prevent too much pressure in the lines and still more than the pump.

There is a water pump switch on the control panel. When not connected to water line move selector switch in water bay to Normal and turn on the pump. If it is working and you have water in your tank when you turn on a faucet you will hear a slight ticking noise and water will flow.

Welcome to our ever growing family!

The 36.1 was a late arrival to the 2013 model line up.

As for several different Palazzo threads...subscribe to them all and you will be notified when someone posts a comment. Each thread started off to discuss a specific topic but as they go along they tend to wonder in different directions.

Looking forward to hearing about your Palazzo experiences!
