But if we needed water and no City water we would turn on water switch We never had a problem with pump in 3 years .
We did have a leak in the Cassette toilet which we fixed and put in water turnoff for bathroom .I've added a water turnoff in my new 21 also . I don't know why there are all these water pump problems in Escape trailers bad batch ??
Very possible , it 's not only Escape with this problem . When number 4 comes around going with a different pump and it is more money , says made in USA . For how cheap these pumps we are using that may be the answer starts with a c . Pat

That's probably not the pump. Probably is the box it comes in that is made in USA.

How did adding a 3' length of water line isolate the pump from the pex line?

pumps

I hope we don't have these problems when we get our 21 in Nov. Maybe putting on an accumulator (pressures the water ) so pump won't come on/off so often it worked on my Lil Snoozy so we will see .I hope Escape is using the best water pump out there how much more would a better pump cost ? $$
The sure-flo pump on my boat is the second pump (boat is 12 years old)but the pump is probably 10-15 years old found in my buddy's garage years ago but was made in the USA back then .

Hope you have good luck . Just having to replace a 22 year old Shurflo , it still works but is leaking a little on the water distiller . Pat

Has anyone asked Escape if they will install an accumulator as part of the build?
It seems like a pretty easy aftermarket installation though, as long as there is space for it.

Don't see where anyone answered this... Adding the "flexible" length or reinforced hose on the input and output of RV water pumps quiets the pump. Must absorb some of the water surge I guess.

Here's the after market kit many folks install. https://www.amazon.com/SHURFLO-94-59.../dp/B000WN5F96

Hi: bdornbush... Sorry I didn't answer but we were on the road. Adding a 3' loop of mesh 60psi potable water hose from the pump to the Pex cold water line isolates the pump vibration from the water lines. It still makes some noise... more a purr than a roar!!! Hear kitty kitty. Alf

Escape is now doing this as standard, I was told.
