Water pump spits & sputters

09 Flagstaff 28rkws. We use it for 3 months each winter, but have only used the water pump to winterize. Last year I had a hard time winterizing as the pump was not eager to uptake the antifreeze. Today I thought I would sanitize the plumbing as I "dump" the antifreeze. Fill water tank with bleach solution. Leave bypass around water heater and move to all fixtures to evacuate antifreeze. Pump not cycling, but I continue to get the spitting. Checked filter screen on pump. Checked connections to pump. I see Surflo offers a repair "kit", but wanted to check here and see if I am missing something?? Thanks

Update: After filling fresh water tank 3 times and running the pump for a few minutes from each fixture the pump seems to working now. Must be some gaskets/O-rings/? that maybe had dried from lack of use??
