Default Water Pump Location?

I suspect I need to replace my coach water pump on my 2018 Winnebago ERA 70X. I went to take it out of storage where it had been for two weeks and heard the water pump was turned on but I had no water in the fresh water tank. After putting half a tank full of fresh water in, I turned the pump on and it ran continuously. It never reached pressure and shut off. And, when I turned on a faucet, no water came out. Is it likely to have been burned out?

Where is the pump and how hard is it to replace?

I subsequently read that the Shurflo pump can safely run dry. Perhaps I need to let the pump prime itself?

The water pump in my 2018 Era A is under the cabinet between the sink and cooktop. There is an access panel but you need to remove the floor to change the pump. Itís only 2 screws and an easy job as I recall.

Did the pump ever work correctly? Mine had a kink in the line to the fresh water tank from day 1 that a Winnebago tech finally found. They also had to put in a new pump, all under warranty.

It did work fine. I have to think that having it run dry may have contributed to its demise even though Shurflo indicates it can be run dry.

Do you have a tank style water heater that was emptied?
It might hold 5 gallons or so. I thought my pump was bad one time when I partially filled the tank. I eventually realized that the water level in the tank had dropped in filling the pipes and water heater. Once I added more water, the pump worked fine but it takes some time to fill the pipes and water heater.

(It's not clear in your original post if the pump was running while in storage or just after you picked it up. If the whole time, it's more likely to be damaged.)

Our ERA will exhibit the same symptoms of the fresh water valve is left in the fill position and not returned to the normal position. Maybe a quick check before you purchase a new pump.
