Water pump inlet screen bowl

Yesterday I was getting something out of my hybrid and I noticed a piece of round plastic with a small screen in bowl laying on the floor right next to my water pump. I soon found that I must have had some water left in the bowl when I winterized. Well guess what it froze and broke the bowl at the threads. Does anyone have any information of where I can get a new bowl for the water pump inlet screen?

If your "Pre screen filter bowl" was frozen you should check your Pump and Filter housing also! Did you just use Air for "Winterizing"? Youroo!!

I had this happen to me this weekend as well. Word of advice just buy the whole thing and replace it all. I bought two different ones and each bowl still leaked.

Pat yourself on the back for finding it now and not on your first outing.

I used air to winterize. I to have some concern about the water pump. I am hoping that this is a low point and any water in the pump housing drained back into this inlet filter. Filter housing was removed after I winterized the system so no issues there.

That is why I ask,Air Winterizing does Nothing for your Pump,the chambers will retain water! Lots of Members do the Air Method but if you check their Location they Live in Warmer Areas,But they also get caught in a "Freezeing" once in a while! Youroo!!

On my old Class A I always air winterized but that unit had a drain right under the pump. I now use RV antifreeze because of the ease with this new TT. I actually feel for me using the RV antifreeze is a more sure way to winterize.

FROZEN

If it is the water pump bowl and screen, Camping world has the complete screw on assembly for the bowl and screen.

As inconvenient as it is for me to reach my water pump, I remove and empty the bowl, reinstall, blow the lines and empty again.

Using air, I have done this also. Using antifreeze the suction is on inlet side of the strainer, so it is protected. The replacement bowl is an easy task, it just screws off/on. I also use air when winterizing but it has never hurt the pump. Additionally while winter camping one year it got so cold (used to much ceramic heating, not enough furnace) my FW pump quit one morning. Opening doors and turning up the heat allowed the pump to work. Still use it today (4 yrs later). Guess I'm the lucky one...

Same problem, different fix.

I had the sediment bowl with the screen in it freeze also on a new motorhome. I used anti freeze, not air, but my bowl was also on suction side of pump but did not receive anti freeze due to shutoff to keep antifreeze from FW tank. My water pump also had push drains for intake and outflows. I also did not have suction line for antifreeze. So my cure was to buy antifreeze valve with suction line and remove and toss filter and replace it with the new winterizing valve and all were same threads so I now had a winterizing valve. I installed inline filter in my fresh water hose to motorhome or tank fill. Just my cure since I didn't have a winterizing valve. YMMV

After removing the filter from the inline filter canister, I use air to blow out all the lines (including opening all the ball valves in the bypass path). Then I draw just enough antifreeze in through the winterizing port to see it in the filter canister. This insures that the pump (an its screen bowl) is protected. I also then loosen the inline filter canister to "open" the threads to prevent breakage if water were to be trapped there. Works for me to -20 F.
