See any reason a small expansion tank wouldn't work? at 1/2G it's bigger then the Shurflo accumulators.

That is the same thing, Bob. It would work fine. Mounting would not be as easy as the Shur-flo type ones though, but a couple straps would likely work.

Most of the noise issue in RV water pump installations results from transmission of pump vibrations though the piping and the supporting structure - I don't think there's much point trying to add sound-absorbing material to the cabinet, and I would want to avoid anything that might absorb water in a cabinet with a pump.

Thanks Jim. Nice setup.

It looks like you used crimped hose connections for the pressurized line from the pump to the accumulator - is that a a ready-made ShurFlo item? The suction side of the pump has a hose clamp on a barbed elbow connector, which seems to me like the practical way to go in this location where there is no pressure.
