Need Guidance

I installed an accumulator in my 2013 Bambi (right next to the pump). Checked out as advertised. Let it sit with pump on for three days to check for any leaks. Came in today (day three), no leaks and turned on water, full pressure. As it bled off the pump did not start. Turned off power, check fuse, turned on power pump started and charged system, stopped (ever so gradually as with accumulator). Ran water again and system bled down with no pump activation. Rocked the pump switch a couple of times and pump came on. No rhyme or reason to the number or frequency of on/off's to get pump to work.

Any thoughts besides bad pressure sensor on a 7 month old pump?

Did it work OK before you installed the accumulator?

Accumulators are not recommend for use with the variable speed pumps in new trailers. Take out the accumulator, it's not needed.
