Re: Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump

After 6 weeks on the road with our new 19', half of it off the grid, my assessment of the pump has changed a bit. There have been a couple of occasions when the system generated some noticable knocking (no idea why) which it did not do the first several times out or since. Except for that knocking, the the overall noise level has been tolerable. The more annoying part for me is the low threshold for the pump to kick in - it will often cycle for the slighest trickle, even when just wetting a toothbrush.

I need to put in a new hose clamp on the pump anyway (the flex hose connecting to the pump developed a small leak the last day out). So the silencing kit and accumulator are on order.

Doug, I like your mounting solution. Ideas like that are what I like about this forum!

Hi David

The silencing kit flex hose is what I used, my friend tried the accumulator did nothing to silence the pump so he took it back and did what I did and it worked great even on a stick built trailer.
Also someone mentioned that they had a bad vibration in their water lines, this just happened to me, I fixed it by draining the lines with the low point drain then turning on the pump with the sink taps open, the problems seemed to be air trapped in the line/pump head.
Jim if you read this the problem could also be caused because I'm in Alberta... LOL

Re: Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump

I'm going to install the pump silence hoses and I also want to install an easy winterizing connection. Can anyone give me the clear plastic intake hose diameter so I can buy the plastic fittings/valve? Thanks

Before you void your warranty call the Escape Factory for the sizes.

Re: Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump

I've been following this thread since the beginning and trying to work out what the problem is that's being solved.
I turn the pump on when I need water. It's only on for a few minutes at a time and only makes noise when I have a tap open.

Whatever I'm missing, I'm thankful I don't have to fix it.

Re: Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump

Jim, no need at all to add a winterizing connection. The waterline drain works just fine, as it is at the low point on the water supply. Just open up the taps and let drain 'til it stops. My first winter I tried blowing the lines out after I did this, and only got some light spitting. Of course, the water heater needs to be drained too.

Baglo, I am interested in a quieter pump for the wife's evening trips. The darn thing is right under our heads, and I don't like being startled awake.

Re: Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump

To All,

I too have monitored this subject to learn and help provide a solution. I have no complaints but then I do not sleep over the pump. This 2012 / 5.0 has a few differences;

> 5.0 has a Artis Products pump...may or may not operate quieter
> mounted horizontal on the floor...may transfer less noise and vibration
> using clear, soft, flexable hosing on both sides...also may transfer less vibration

These differences might be factory improvements.
The pump spec sheet boasts self priming-dry running-corrosion resistance-low noise-sealed motor-patented diaphragm

Sorry the accumulator suggestion didn't help.
My pump runs alot less with the accumulator installed and I can get enough water for one quick flush without using the pump at night.

Any input from Reace and the factory?

David
