Most D's are equipped with a Shurflo water pump. These are high-quality pumps that should provide many years of service. Here are some tips to review if you are having problems.
First, my D did not come with the optional strainer on the input side of the water pump. It is very important that you install a strainer as your Shurflo warranty is not valid if the pump is damaged by any foreign material. (More on this later).
Second, it is a good idea to install an accumulator tank. The purpose of the accumulator tank is to store pressurized water so that the pump does not cycle on and off nearly as much. You can buy an accumulator tank at Camping World, but you can save yourself some $$ by going to your local hardware store and buying one there.
Are you having problems with your water pump mysteriously coming on for no apparent reason? After you have confirmed that you had no leaks, the solution is probably below:
Note that Shurflo attends most larger RV Rallies and will rebuild your Shurflo pump for free.
