Default Water pump suction side question

2009 FF X230DS. I thought the water pump was bad because I had "gurgly" water from the fresh water tank. I replaced it, (surprise) no change. So now I realize it must be a problem on the suction side. Other than the piece of hose which attaches to the pump and disappears into the floor how do I access the rest to repair?

Or if I'm totally on the wrong track, what track should I be on?

Thanks,
Jon

On mine, the suction line hose attaches to the side of the tank near the bottom of the tank, and is exposed and visible. If the connection is tight at the tank, then there may be a wear point between the tank and the pump where a hole has been worn in the hose.

Ya, sounds like air is being drawn into the system. Check/recheck the connections between the tank and the pump. As mentioned, the short piece of tube between the tank and pump may be the source of the air draw. Lastly, the pump may be shot.

hook up and make sure the pump is working.... put a hose on the side of the pump where the water goes in and check it. Other thing does your water tank still have water in it? If so and the pump is working you could have a problem like I did when the trailer was new. The problem was with the pick up tube in the fresh water tank was not sitting on the bottom and would not pick up the last 1/3 of the tank. I had to go buy 1 foot of hose and replace it from under the trailer. Easy fix. Maybe yours fell off and its sucking air or its just the shitty craftsmanship of shitty cruiser RV like mine was. Did it ever work?

Those are darn harsh words from a Canadian especially since “sorry” was added at the end of the statement

Trace the pickup tube to the water tank under the trailer. It's unlikely that there is a hole in the tube. More likely that the connections are leaking or that the outlet of the tank is above the water level in the tank. If connections are held on by radiator clamps, try tightening them. Two questions to ask you: 1) is the tank completely filled? 2) did you always have this problem?
