I can not get the water pump to pressurize the system unless I first use the city water connection and then disconnect. The pump holds the pressure fine and delivers water to the faucets.
Any ideas what I might need to do?
Thanks -- Frank O.

Are you saying if you just turn on the pump without pre-pressurinzing it just runs on with no water delivery?

I too don't quite understand the question..

I do know when you have two positions, city and tank fill, if you turn it to tank fill the pump will run all the time as this creates a loop.

If you every run out of water in the tank, this is a good way to reprime the pump.

Looking for a better description of the problem.

OK, sorry for the poor description. I filled the tank through the city connection. I then disconnected the city connection and used the outside shower to clean up a little without the pump or city connect so the pressure went down naturally. I then went inside and did some straightening up and decided to turn the water pump on. The water did come out of the faucets but when I turned them off the pump continued to run. I may have left the valve in the "tank fill" position but I am not sure. I will pay attention next time. The system is now pressurized and the pump is off. Should I keep the pump off when traveling?
thanks for the feedback.

We turn the pump off when traveling if we think about it. Most of the time it stays on. Memory not so good any more. Never had a problem but when traveling i suppose there could be more of a change of developing a leak. Not anything to really worry about. My thoughts anyway.

I agree with Wizard - turning it off is considered "good practice". If a leak should develop, you probably won't hear the pump while you're on the road and could find a flooded compartment when you stop. However, like Wizard, I don't alway remember and it's not a big deal.
