Default Re: Roadtrek Water Pump is noisy (groaning) when in use

What you hear (the groan) is normal. When you turn the tap on the pump will cycle on and off building pressure.

Just so I'm clear on this....the water pump SHOULD turn off and on while in use..correct? Here is what ours does....when turning on the sink faucet on low it surges, when using the foot pedal for the toilet it runs continuosly while holding it down, when using the shower or running the sink faucets on high it runs continuously. If this is NOT normal...what could be the problem??

You are correct. As Steve says, the pump should only make noise (groan/growl) when under demand for
water. As I recently found out, (including how to take one apart (Shurflo) and clean the filter) my pump
made noise continuously when I switched it on at the monitor panel, because it was trying to self-
prime and couldn't pull enough water through a badly clogged filter. Now, it only makes a
noise when I step on the toilet water/flush pedals or use any other water source (sink/shower).
I also tend to leave it switched on overnight in case either of us has to get up, and it is quiet
until called upon.

It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
