The problem is, when the pump is on the pipes reverberate all through the coach so it's hard to follow the sound.
I see from your handle that you have a 34J--same as me.

Your water pump is under your master bed. You'll have to prop up the mattress, tilting it towards the front of the MH. You'll see a 24"x24" cutout on the wood panel. Open that towards the end of the bed (way from the headboard) and you'll find the pump, cleanup filter, and winterizing connections all right there.

I took Dynamat (the thin tar-paper kind) and lined the floor and the walls, and re-installed the pump onto to that. I also installed a vibration damping kit (really, it's just some pass-through connections and softer/flexible tubing). Doing those two things significantly helped (but did not eliminate) the vibrations coming from the pump when it turned on.

As an additional item, I also installed a pressurized water bladder as well. It's about the size of a football and is directly downstream from the pump. It stores just enough water that will allow someone to quickly flush a toilet or take a small glass of water without kicking on that pump and waking up my wife who sleeps directly above that thing. ;-)
