Pump surging

My water pump will come on for a couple of seconds every couple of minutes. I have looked and can not see any leaks. It just started this weekend. Had it out 2 weeks ago and no problem. I think it has to be a loose fitting but none have been found. Any help appreciated.

Put newspaper under those fittings that have a flat area under them. Any water leakage will darken the newsprint almost immediately.

Have u bled all the air from hot water tank till it's clear and not bubbley or foamy looking?

A few campers had that at one campground on a well with little pressure. We ran the hot water side on the kitchen and bathroom (shower and sink) till solid water and it went away. Guess there was a pocket of air in the top of the on about 3 of the 6 campers. Something to try if u are not finding any leaks but uses a lot of water if dry docking. We were just using to have pressure while his new well pump came in.

You should purge air from the hot water system at the pressure relief valve.
