Shurflo replacement for Artis water pump

Can anyone provide the Shurflo direct replacement water pump part number ? Our 2013 19 Escape's Artis (green/black WFCO) water pump is noisy and slow. I want to be prepared for replacement. Were any major changes needed for the changeover ? We will be dry camping in a remote location.

Looks like this one will work. Both are 3 GPM, and the inlet and outlet connectors seem to be in a similar place:

Shurflo Revolution RV 12V Water Pump 3GPM - $59.99

This is their 4 GPM model:

Ok, let me restate this request. Can anyone that has replaced the Artis water pump provide the Shurflo replacement part number ?

I replaced mine with a Shurflo 4008-101-E65 while on the road, 15 min. job. The only thing I had to change was to mount it with longer screws as the Shurflo had deeper pads on the feet.

The 4406-143 is a Flojet. You asked for the Shurflo. The links in my first post have both Shurflo part numbers. One of them is the 4008-101-E65 Barry mentions.

Has anyone added or considered adding an accumulator? If set up properly it would reduce the need for the pump to turn on as frequently. This may help to increase pump life.

The Shurflo pumps reportedly last quite a while, and they're cheap to replace as well.

With our old artis pump it must have been Leaking back because if we forgot to turn the switch off it would loose pressure and pump its self up every so often. The new one is quieter , never seems to loose pressure and the water flows more smoothly. Then old one the water sort of pulsed. With a decent pump I don't see us needing to go to the trouble of adding a accumulator.
