Thanks Jerry, and Good Troubleshooting! I will check for air leaks next time it runs-on...
Cheers

Nice install and what I want to go with for number 4 when that happens . Another item to keep a eye on is the filter . Mine was leaking air with the flat top being cut into which you couldn't see unless you looked at it very close . The metal screen cut into it . I replaced it with a little better domed one Shurflo has . Glad to hear the Remco is quiet . Pat

For what it's worth, Tammy advised me not to store anything in the bench compartment that has the water heater, pump, electrical, cord, etc.
I've not found that I needed the space anyway.

My 6mo old Artis pump is giving about half pressure and will not shut off. The recommended adjustment did not work either. I did notice that the Artis instructions say if mounted vertically to always point the pump head down. ETI mounted mine facing up. Just wondering if that could be the problem?

Not likely. ETI replaced my broken Shurflo pump with an Artis pump which I mounted facing down. After a few weeks, it also started running all the time at reduced pressure. I contacted Artis as ETI suggested and they gave me adjustment instructions different from ETI instructions and that did not work so they replaced the pump under warranty. So far, so good.

Hi Bill interesting . We are on our 3rd pump now with our trailer . I was wondering about whether or not pump should be laying down , could it be a problem or not ? My previous RV ' s had the pumps laying flat not attached to wall . Just curious about this Pat

Had I bought another Artis I would have mounted it as per the directions. That is, pump head down or horizontal. However, I went with a SureFlo Revolution. Hope it lasts longer than 6 months like the Artis.

I didn't notice this direction until I read this posting. Since I mounted mine with the head up as ETI suggested, I guess I will need to remount it. I will probably mount it horizontal so that the adjustment screws are accessible without having to remove the pump. I really don't need another failed water pump.

Bill do you think pump should be horizontal vs vertical ? Pat

I only know what Artic says in their instructions, which is that the pump can be mounted either horizontally or vertically but if mounted vertically, it should be mounted with the pump head down. I plan to mount mine horizontally so that I can reach the pump head without dismounting the pump.
