My REMCO is a little loud too. But it has a higher flow rating than the Shurflo that came with the motorhome.

All in all like the REMCO better. I just made sure it wasnít sitting against anything and looped the inlet line like is suggested. Sorry I donít have any better recommendations.

Have you made sure the rubber vibration isolators are in place and tightened down? There should be one on each corner of the pumps mounting plate. Also check for the pex tube resting on a wall or panel. They are thin so any vibration in the tubing will be amplified.

Check to see if it is mounted to a thin sheet of wood. If is, remount to a thicker board and glue the new board to the floor and a few screws.

I use a silicone 'doggy bowl', which happens to work perfectly - it keeps the water pump off the floor, and it's basically 'floating' on the silicone 'bowl' so that none of it actually touches the coach.

now, my problem is, though, I CAN'T hear it!

often times it's the PEX tubing vibrating against a wall or floor. Look at it when it's running and see if that is it, if so add a looped flexible line between the pump and PEX. You can buy them at Home Depot, used to connect the water to toilet or sink.

Rick used a piece of horse stall mat (https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...bber-stall-mat ) that he bought to put under the tires. He cut a square, placed water pump on top of mat, screwed pump to mat, then used separate screws to screw mat to compartment floor.
