Water Pump under the shower.

I have a 2018 FR Sunseeker. The water pump is kind of noisy and the pressure is not the best. The pump is under the shower pan. Can it be replaced without removing the shower base?

Can you give more specifics about your Sunseeker? What is the model? Is it on a Mercedes, Transit, E-series, or Chevy chassis?

Secondly, what is the water pump model? Some pumps have pressure and bypass adjustments, so you may be able to improve the performance or quiet the noise with adjustments. Do you have the installation/service manual for the pump?

It is a Sunseeker 24C on a ford E450 chassis. Without taking out the toilet I wouldn't be able to see the make and model of the pump. The bus is in storage right now or I would take some pictures.

While it’s not totally relevant to your current question, 24C is not a Sunseeker model number I have heard of. Maybe there are different model numbers for the Canada market. Here is a link to a 2018 USA Sunseeker brochure, for reference. If your model matches up with one of these floor plans, perhaps it will be easier for someone who has the same floor plan to identify with it and help your pump question.

Iím thinking it might be behind the black panel inside the passenger side rear outside storage compartment.

Nope. On the Sunseeker 2430S models, the pump is located underneath the shower floor. Thereís a 4 screw access panel right beside the lever to select on board water tank or winterize......thatís when you use the factory provided hose also located under the shower floor.
