We have a 2004 R-Vision Trail Bay 27DS.

The unit has sat for almost 2 years with very little use.

Getting the trailer ready, we discovered the water pump will not function...which for this trip was fine as we were at a full hook up.

We would like to replace the water pump for dry camping.

Any suggestions on what to buy (12V)?

We most likely do not need the higher grade units as our trailer's holding tank is only 40 gallons, with a 6 gallon water heater. And the trailer is a 2004...we will be selling soon and upgrading.

Many thanks,
Denise

A SHURflo 4008 Revolution pump would work well for your application.

Dutch_12078,

Thank you for the reply.

I will show this to my husband.

I can see I probably did not post in the best spot....This is actually my first post for many years. Your quick response is very helpful.

Any 12VDC pump rated for at least 3 gallons per minute and 55 PSI will do the job nicely. The Shur-Flo is a good choice, but there are others.
I would not get a pump rated less than 3GPM and 55PSI. I had one in our motorhome, and hated it. I upgraded as soon as I could!

You did check to see if you had 12V at the pump?

Yeah, probably worth trouble shooting as these pumps are pretty reliable. No sense replacing the pump if it's a blown fuse.

Yes, check voltage supply. Could be a fuse or even a bad switch. Also, these pumps are all easily rebuildable, so that is a consideration too.

Consider Putting a ONE MICRON filter ahead of the pump

Share a photo of your existing pump and we can provide more feedback, it’s possible something like a fuse may be blown.
