Default X139 water pump issu

Hello!

The water pump in our 2011 x139 is not stable, It seems like it is always trying to built is pressure. If we put it on and we are not using the water it is kind off on/off twiching. Any idea on how to solve the issue?

Many Thanks

Fred

Could there be a leak or drip somewhere? That's the only time mine would do that. Low point drains shut, no dripping faucets?

To solve this common problem, many people install an accumulator. I chose a one-quart Shurflo accumulator. The installation is not difficult. Let us know if you have questions!

On mine, I had to turn on the valves to fill the tank. I wouldn't fire up the water heater until you get it sorted out.

Fred, do not turn on the hot water yet. First, make sure the pump is on. Then open the hot water faucet in the sink. If water flows out, your hot water tank is full, and you can turn on the water heater. If air comes out, wait -- the water may come out in a minute, after the air is pushed out of the hot water tank.

If nothing comes out, then the valve to the hot water tank may be closed.

It is very important not to turn on the heating element until the hot water tank is full of water.

If you just bought this trailer used, maybe the hot water tank bypass has been left open from the last winterizing?

Worth checking. Its the only thing I can think of that would have cold water working fine, but hot water as you described.

Besides all that was said above, you may also have problems with the check valve going into and out of the hot water tank. When I first got my trailer (used), the hot water was only trickling out of the faucet. Did some checking and discovered that the one way check valve on the inlet side of the tank had broken free and was clogging the water passage. Relatively easy fix once you know what to look for.
