Water Pump upgrade

The Bettye's water pump shot craps this past trip to Iowa. Just sort of trickled out and then stopped....Nothing, Nada, Dryness. Ugh!
So, the search was on....Where is the damn pump? Looked underneath the coach, looked all over the inside too! UGH! I'm very dumb.
Finally realized....Take the seats up, remove the panels underneath the seats! Ah Ha! Found you, you little bugger!
Removed the old pump, Not a Sure-Flo 4008! Tested it w/ 12 Volts..nothing. I think I'm on to something here!
Amazon delivered a Sure-Flo 4008, Sure-Flo Accumulator a Quiet Kit w/ foam padding for the water lines.
Yes, it's a drag to actually get under all this stuff and find the pump. Yes it was hot inside the coach. Yes, I'm not a plumber, but when it was all finally replaced, tested and the wife turned on the water....what did we hear? Quiet!
Well, not silence, but very quiet compared to the old pump. Better flow and a sense of accomplishment pervaded my mind!
This has enabled me to trust that if somethings goes wrong, I can handle it! It's a matter of mind over matter....and I'm a cheap Old Man!

"If mama's happy, everybody is happy". Glad you worked it out and one less problem to fix. Had the same thing happen to me two days out on the way to the barn a couple of years ago Was an easy fix and upgrade and quiet.
Happy trails
