Noisy water pump

I have a new 2108DS and am getting it ready for our first night away. I am familiarizing myself with all of the features and was very surprised with how loud the water pump operates. Are RV water-pumps usually loud?

Hi -
Yes, oftentimes the pumps can be noisy. If you do some poking around on the internet, you will see some kits to make pumps quieter as well as suggestions. Many claim that it's the hoses connected to the pump (which are stiff) vibrating; others feel it's the vibrations from the pump where it is connected to the RV. As a result - some of the kits or suggestions add loops of more flexible hose where they connect to the pump, and some cushion the mounts. Personally, I've cut up an old rubber mouse pad in the past and re-mounted the pump with the cushion in place.
Not sure if this helps, but your observation is a common one.

This helps a great deal, thank you. If you're not hooked up to a water supply, running water at night would wake everyone up in the trailer and possibly neighboring campers! I'm glad that I checked this out beforehand!

Donstar I have the same exact Travel Trailer and Had the same issue.. My water pump was under the sink up against the steel from the inner fender wells..When the pump kicked on it vibrated rubbing the metal and made a horrible sound. I put some packaging foam under my pump and between the steel wheel wells and it helped quiet it down a lot. Hope this idea helps..
