Default Best place to buy fender skirt and water pump?

I called Cruiser RV and they told me to call a dealer on both counts. Called several dealers listed on their website and none sold Cruiser parts. So I need to order these online - at least the fender. I searched online and only found icondirect.com. Anyone bought from them?

The guy at Cruiser did tell me that I could probably get a better pump through a dealer than came on the trailer. Is this something that needs to come from an RV dealer or can it come from anywhere? If so, can you name some places?

Got mine from Amazon. They swap easily and you can get one with better flow and queiter.

When you put in a new pump, be sure to add a small accumulator, if you don't have one already. It really cuts down on the noise and the power consumption, and I think it saves water, too. I have a one quart Shurflo accumulator -- very easy to install.

Here's another site for fender skirts turned up with a google search:
http://lookup-our-skirts.com/

lookup-our-skirts redirects to icondirect. Must be like a search engine for that stuff.

Good tip about the accumulator. I had read that before and forgotten, but this is a good time to add it.

Now we're not sure it's the pump. Read on another rv site where someone in another brand rv was having the same problem (city water slowly fills fresh water tank too) that it might be a valve problem. We need to find out before buying a new pump.

I may not be the best one to comment on this since I automatically default to Amazon for my first search for online purchases. But I do comparison shop and Amazon often beats others and provides free shipping to boot. I bought a SHURflo 4008-101-E65 3.0 Revolution Water Pump for just under $60 to replace the faulty one in my 2012 FF.

Several years ago Cruiser did sell repair parts direct to consumers but understand that policy changed and any parts must be ordered from one of their dealers ~ same as many mfgrs who only sell thru their dealer network.

When my pump went bad, it was a Shur-Flo, and was replaced by another Shur-Flo.

Aren't those available pretty much anywhere?

LOL, maybe not everywhere. At least not Walmart or Home Depot. But I didn't expect it there either.

btw, I bought the fender skirt at icondirect and it was just about a perfect fit. A couple of the holes didn't line up but they weren't predrilled so that didn't really matter.
