Question Aquajet 55AQUAJET-ARV will not prime - Need advise if it's time to replace.

I need the wisdom from those that have needed to replace a fresh water pump. My Aquajet will not prime. I have tried many things mentioned here on IRV2 with no luck.

The tank is over 3/4 full. I opened the low point drain for 15 seconds, slowly opened and close the tank fill valve, opened multiple faucets and let the pump run for 5 minutes, many combinations. Also opened and cleaned the inlet screen. Put plumbers grease on the o-ring seals. Valved the inlet off and opened the winterizing/sanitizing inlet hose, running for 5 minutes from a bucket of fresh water. No visible leaks on inlets lines or valves.

Posted a YouTube video and has the whining type sound of the pump. Does it sound shot? Is there a way to test it? It's only 4 years old. I read it's against rules to post a link for the video on an initial post, only a reply. After the 1st reply it will be posted

Thanks to all.

p.s. Sorry about the pic orientation.

Link to Video of Water Pump.

Not sure if this is against the rules, but this is the link to the video/audio of the pump/motor.

Hoping for some comments....Thanks

That sure sounds like the pump is shot and posting a supporting video for a problem like this is perfectly fine.

Hurricane is coming.

I am disappointed at the lack of comments. Thank you LT Dan. I wasn't in a hurry, but now a hurricane is coming down on me. Would could use the RV to run. Wife ordered Hotel rooms. I did order another of the same aquajet pump, delivery by end of day Wednesday. Oh well. Thanks for viewing my post.
