I suppose this is an inappropriate or unnecessary suggestion, but couldn't you just replace the manual setup with a simple 12v pump and new faucet?


It's not inappropriate but, the hand system works quite well for the little bit of water used when I use this camper. And,, I keep this pop up for going places with no electricity. I bought it used, cheap. It looks like it must have had some sort of battery system on it at one time but, the whole thing has been removed. It's really just a tent/bed on wheels.

So easy to tow though. I live in SW MN and have a friend that moved to Duluth on the north shore of Lake Superior this year. Beautiful country up there. To visit him, and go camping up there, I need to go through what we call the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/ St.Paul and their suburbs. Plus, It's a 5-6 hour drive for me to get there. I can drag this pop up though the cities at 70-75 mph, get 20 mpg, and not worry about abusing it. It's kinda old school thing and that is fun sometimes too. I use it once, maybe twice, a year. I paid $1000 for it and kinda regret it because either I should have just bought a tent or spent more money and got a better pop up. Oh Well, I had fun with it this year and will again next.

Lots of good suggestions, maybe you can make a block for the the pump handle to prevent the handle from moving or preventing a siphon effect. Sounds like the pump handle is worn/old.. so if the pump handle has a serviceable packing box you might be able to roll in some teflon tape with plummers grease. This might stiffen up the handle. Amazon or a local plumbing wholesaler may have universal valve stem kits also.
