Question Water Pump

Just got back from a week of camping with no water hook-ups, and while everything worked out fine, when I had water running my water pump pulsed instead of running steadily. Has anyone ever had this happen, and any ideas what could be the problem?

It's quite common on most RVs. You might try installing an accumulator tank. You might also consider an upgrade to a higher output variable speed pump.

As long as it won't burn up the pump, I am OK with it pulsing...Just glad it is "fairly normal"...

Our old 2009 TT did that when we used hot water in the kitchen only and only if the tap was fully open, if you played with the amt the knob was open it would eventually go to a steady run.
