12V DC Water Pump Recommendation

I have a four-year-old Lippert Flow Max 12V RV Water Pump in our travel trailer. The pump still works great, but the mounting foot cracked in half sometime during our last outing. So now the pump shakes and vibrates when running.

And, of course, you can't buy a replacement mounting foot. How convenient for Lippert...... $$$$.

There are other manufacturers of low-capacity (~3 gpm) 12V water pumps. I would be interested in your recommendation(s).

The advantage of going with the same pump is there would be no new hose connections to run.

Thanks for your time.

Super glue it or put a zip tie around it, the type that have a loop at the end for a securement screw.

3 legs will work
buy some rubber matting to dampen vibration

Plastic glue that "melts" the plastic then sets hard.... is better than JB weld or super glue

You can pick up this pump at Home Depot this morning All these pumps have common fittings so it's not important to get one this color.

Or just run with 3 bolts and some rubber vibration dampers -- Home Depot again -- which I thought came with all these pumps.

I don't think JB Weld would bond to the plastic mounting foot.

Take the broken foot off so it doesn’t have anything to vibrate against and have a beer.

Job weld

Jb weld makes an epoxy specific for plastics. It worked well on what I tried it on.

I would use some 5 minute epoxy and repair the foot.
Some rubber under the feet is a good idea.
Shur-flow makes dependable pumps.

Thanks to everyone who replied. I will attempt to use some type of adhesive to reattach the foot. I had bushings underneath the pump previously, so I was surprised that this happened. Bob in Grand Rapids MI
