I got really tired of the vibration & noise my water pump made so I got busy and revamped my pump area. I started with installing flexible hoses so the vibrations don't carry down the rest of my plumbing lines. Then added an accumulator tank (pressure tank) to make the flow more even instead of cylcing pressure. Rubber pads (old truck bed mat material) under pump and first connection after accumulator tank. R-4 Styrofam insulation on all sides of the compartment for sound and heat. Clamped piping before and after flex hoses with rubberized clamps for vibrations. Installed a tee valve so I can pump in RV antifreeze easily for winterizing. Rerouted and clamped the LP sensor wiring. Strainer filter before pump to get any chunks or sand that might get in the diaphragm.
I have also added the pipe foam insulation around most of the rigid piping since I took the photos.
With all of this done I have to really listen for my pump it's so quiet now! Hopefully the insulation of the waterlines and compartment will help reduce chances of freeze up as well for fall hunting. I did leave small gaps in the insulation so heat from inside the camper will still get into the compartment.
The pump is now purring like a kitten, producing even flowing water, and hopefully protected better from cold. Forest River sould do this stock it only cost around $60 for the entire upgrade.
Let me know if anyone sees anything blatantly wrong with the setup.
Thanks for looking,
