Water Pump

We have a 3 year old Surveyor that has always had a noisy Water Pump. Does any one else have any issues with their pump? And what can be done to resolve the problem?

Pretty common complaint. You can remount the pump on better isolation material like a 1" neoprene block, add a silencer kit (basically flexible supply lines), and of course upgrade to a higher-end pump.

We added the silencer kit to our last camper, it decreased the noise a lot and it was easy to install.

Take a look at your pump/hose install to see if anything might be making contact and causing excessive noise.

In our case I installed the pump over a mouse pad screwing through to the floor.
