water pump problem
Having just finished a 3200 mile vacation pulling my 05 Grand Surveyor I decided to pull the cover off the water pump area to see if I could determine why it was so dang noisy and see if I could do anything about it. Well, the first thing I discovered was that the water filter had no filter in it and that it had fallen off the wall having only been secured with staples on 1/8" paneling. How Dumb! Well, I glued the piece of wood to which the bracket was attached up against another wood piece that was solidly mounted and replaced the staples with screws from the outside (exposed screw heads in the trailer) and then rescrewed the four screws on the bracket, two screws on each piece of wood. Anyway it is secure now, I put a filter in and tried the pump. Everything seems to work fine and is much quieter but the pump does not shut off. Water flows fine but when you cut the water off the pump changes tone and keeps on running. There is no water running anywhere and the pump keeps on running (until I cut the switch off, of course). Any clues?
