think solenoid went out. Was rather warm out and motor/pump hot due to leveling jacks. Any ideas?

If your pump motor overheated, you may have caused internal damage. It comes apart quite easily (assuming your a bit mechanically inclined) and you can check it out.
On mine, one of the brushes had fused itself to the brush holder due to overheat. I was able to "unfuse" it, clean up the brush holder with a small file, then put the brush back in. Bingo!!! Everything working fine.
Brush was a bit "boogered" but still usable.
Alternatively, you can replace the whole motor at a cost of about $240.
Hopefully, your problem is much simpler; and not the motor itself. Mine failed when I was trying Eq Sys's procedure for bleeding the air out of the system. Their published procedure can easily ruin the motor by causing it to overheat badly.
