I'm looking for the water pump high pressure shutoff switch, (or if just one sensor for both highshutoff and low shutoff pressure sensors for the water pump).
My pump turns on automatically with demand, but continues to run after faucet turned off. Maybe its another problem but I suspect pressure switches.

It's built into the pump and can be adjusted, find the manual.

Depends on the pump you have - if it is the Shurflo 5.7 smart pump then no, it is not adjustable. If you have the 2.8 'dumb' pump, it has a conventional pressure switch but I don't believe the cut-in and cut-out pressures are adjustable; I think the manufacturer doesn't want you to fool with it anyway.

The Poster indicates that when he turns on the faucet , the water comes out, and the pump comes on. When he turns the faucet off, the pump continues to run for a short while. This is completly normal.
When the faucet is shut off, the pump continues to run until the pressure builds up and then shuts off.
The pressure switch is usually mounted as part of the pump. It senses the lowering of pressure when you open the faucet and also senses the pressure after the faucet is closed. It does take a few seconds to build up the pressure and shut off the pump.

Is this what you meant as your question?

Good Luck

Twas a "Operator Problem" versus pressure switch problem but I sincerely thank you folks. When I disconnected what has proved to be a realatively low pressue external source and ran all faucets for a few moments the system worked normally.

I had read elsewhere on the forums that placing the pump switch in the on position would help relieve low water flow for showers etc. It does definitely help but, after this experience the switch will go back to off imediately following shower use!

Has anyone installed an additional on/off switch like in the bathroom? I have to walk all the way to the front of the coach. Can I install a second switch in the bathroom? Anyone done it?

We have an additional switch installed in the water service/tank service compartment which is immediately below the shower/john in our configuration. I don 't think it would take much to duplicate that switch about five feet higher with a little cable threading if you are comfortable with electrical wiring.

I have a friend that did just as Paul T suggest. It was an easy installation and works just fine. The friend says his wires run up the wall and are accessible through a access panel in his medicine cabinet. I can't imagine why Winnebago would have ever taken the bathroom pump switch out.

Wiring multiple switches to control one device gets a little tricky and requires additional wiring and special switches.

Looks like the OnePlace is up front on the passenger side in the '07 40TD.
