Palomino Solaire 247rkes waterpump

Question for those with Solaire or maybe just Palominos in general. We just picked up our 247rkes on Friday and decided to take it out for an evening yesterday. When I have the water pump turned on it vibrated all night long(it didn't run you can just hear it vibrating) and it's up by the bedroom somewhere I still need to locate it. Our Kodiak the only time that you could here it is when you ran water or flushed other then that it was silent. Is this normal for this model or could there be a slight air leak. The water comes out of the faucets fine

You still have air in the system, is your water heater full ?

Water pump is driver side in the front storage area. There is a curved wall, undo the two screws and it is behind there. Make sure the water filter is on tight. Ours was loose and it made a vibrating sound when we first used it.

In the same place rkuffler noted, there is an intake hose for antifreeze. Make sure that valve is closed or you're just sucking air into the system.

I have the hybrid Solaire 199x and the problem I was having occasionally was the city waters check valve wasn't working. So I put a shut off valve in it and stopped the water pump from trying to repressurize.
Also check to see if the valve for the winterizing siphon isn't open.

Thanks all. There was a cap that was alittle loose so I tightened it. We are heading out tomorrow for the weekend so I'll see how it goes.
Now another question does it have a hidden battery shutoff? Our Kodiak had a very visible one right by the battery to shut the power on or off when stored. I also found the Electric water heater switch in the outside access panel that the walk thru guy didn't tell us about

Our Solaire did not have one from the factory. I added one - installed on the lid of the battery box.
