    Waah Second time fresh water pump goes out

    Does anyone actually keep a backup in their truck and replace during the workday? This is my second time in 3 years and I have to cancel at least a couple grooms.

    WOW........my fresh water pump is the original one when I purchased my van in 2011......and still pumping out water. Now, my Supersuder pump goes out about every 3-4 years......and yes........I have several pumps in my garage, but not in the van. It wouldn't take over 30 min to drive home, then replace, and then 30 min to drive back to my client's house.......so we are talking about approximately 2 hrs for a turn around....I wouldn't cancel my day's appointments, just work later in the day.

    Happy working overtime

    That is often. I read a lot of reviews before I buy mind. Seems others have had problems like that. Some models just are not as good as others.

    I used simple transfer pumps with my old van and they seemed to go out every six months or so. This time I got a RV pump (still A/C though) and so far so good.

    It's easy peasy to change. I just changed my out last month, so now I will need to replace my spare.

    Truly they are one of the easier things to change equipment wise. Keep a spare, you're covered.

    I haven't yet but I've meant to. I think keeping backups around is great. I can change out my pump in less about 20 minutes and be back on the road. When you consider how cheap they are and how much time you lose if you don't have a backup, it's a no brainer. I would wisdom why you're going through pumps so quickly, though. Replaced mine at about 3.5 years but that's only because I allowed it to freeze. Even then it lasted for a while after.
