Dave,
Were you able to play the videos. If yes what do you think about the noise.

I couldn’t get the videos to work so I can’t listen to the noise.

If you’re hearing a buzzing noise it’s probably from the the pump sitting on the floor. The pump mounts with 4 screws which go thru rubber grommets to give some vibration insulation. Adding a piece of carpet like I did gives the pump more insulation from the hard floor.

I was able to hear the pump noise via the videos. Sounds alot like mine when I have the seat opened up.
SuperD had it right with his post about quieting it down. The flexhoses help a good bit, and I used some foam pipe insulation on them and the short PECS line.
I still haven't put my 2 gallon accumulator in yet, but am pretty sure it will smooth out the pulsations.

You might want to make sure the inlet screen is clean, and the lines are full to the pump, but other than that, you got what you have. I'm sure that everyone in the RV knows when the water is running without quieting it down.

If it’s a knocking noise it’s either air in the line somewhere or the pex tubing is flexing up against something.

Fixed it! Mounting screws were all there but had pulled through the rubber feet. So it was flopping about like the screws were gone. I got a doubled up piece of carpet and screws twice as long with large area washers. That took care of the pump noise but the pex tube from the tank was hitting the wood floor. So for 97 cents I got a section of foam pipe insulation. That should do it!

Good deal Beery! Seems like a lot on these coaches can be irritating but most of the time are simple fixes. I put the ShurFlo accumulator tank in our Axis and had to educate myself on the Pex plumbing which I have never really thought about until now.

Glad you were able to find a simple fix, sometimes you just have to look.

I added the accumulator tonight and now it's even better! I did have to move the pump again, but that's easy. And now that I know where this little jewel lives I can winterize myself! Except I need to find the water heater bypass....

Under the kitchen sink there are two valves, turn them the opposite of what they are now and your tank is bypassed. Easy peasy!!!

Thanks Super Dave! I thought it would be down under there somewhere. Where abouts are you in Indiana? We're in Brownsburg.

We spent 7 years in Brownsburg - right across from Whitelick Elementary School. Great community.
