My water pump is in tight quarters. The output lines are bumping on the side of the water compartment. I need to create room on either side of the pump. I am hoping to replace the plastic tee on the output side of the pump with a new tee that will give me more room. Does anyone know of a source for this tee. I have already tried Lowes and Home Depot. See photo below.

You could remove the tee and then install an elbow and then the tee. You can remove the valve and then screw the threaded end of the tee into the new elbow and then insert a short nipple into the female center connection on the tee and connect the valve to it.

My setup looks just like yours and I've been trying to think of alternatives. One idea I'm considering is cutting a hole though the center bay divider in line with pump outlet and feeding a straight water line through from the other side. Another option would be to reposition the pump a bit to the left (in conjunction with adding looped input and output hoses to silence vibrations).

Rex,

I resolved this problem by mounting the water pump on a piece of plywood, which moved the pump along with connectors away from the back wall. I also installed hose loops on the input and output of the pump. After these changes the pump noise was reduced substantially

I should have asked this in my first post. Any significance to the grey plastic fitting? Would any plastic tee fitting work?

When I was at factory a few years ago having some warranty work done, I mentioned that the pump was noisy.
The tech fixed a 1/2 inch thick piece of a dense felt like material to the side of the bay and then screwed the pump to it. He also added foam pipe insulation around all of the hoses in the compartment. It made quite a difference in the noise level.

It is just a regular tee

I just moved my pump one pump-width forward (rear mounting screws now go in holes formerly occupied by front screws, front screw have new holes). This gave me room to put a loop of hose on both the input and output sides of the pump. The output loop then connects directly into that grey tee and I didn't need the grey, hex-sided female-female connector anymore.

Chris ...

Where did you buy your hoses that you used for your loops?

How long are they?

It's the Shurflo "Water Pump Silencing Kit". I got it at my local dealer, but it's available online from RVUpgrades Water Pump Silencing Kit, among others.
