The project is on the road side. Make sure to use jack stands for protection in mind.

Make couple times spraying and flushing of black tank using a special inlet for that, so the fluid would not be so nasty.

Remove the pump with four bolt nuts as it was explained by Gmillerok, loosen the clamps and remove 3 inch pipe and blue hose. Cut two electrical wires - actually I don't understand why they didn't make a proper connection so you have to cut and connect them again.

Disassembled the motor hoping I will be able to fix it because it is good working pump, just leaking somewhere.

Nope )

One of the bolts appeared broken, thus did not hold a leak. The broken threaded part of bolt is inside the body thread.

So, I decided to buy a new suggested pump.

Suggested pump on Amazon has number 18550000A,
However my original pump has number 18550300C.

Are they interchangeable?

Thank you and Happy Fourth!

It's the same pump: one is a Flojet part number, the other is a Xylem part number. The 2 companies must have merged or something like that.

Both pumps are Flojet.
I bought one on Amazon today, will arrive on Thursday, will see if they are the same.

Yes. The link I gave you was from my Amazon order and is identical to the one I installed and currently have on mine. The second pump had the identical broken bolt issue. I talked to flowjet and the guy told me excessive back pressure can cause the bolt to snap do be sure to always open the valve on the end of the hose before turning it on.

When I loosen and put aside hoses clamps, I removed hoses from the pump, and it was not easy - exactly as you told before, and I used a flat screwdriver to detach them from the body of the pump. It looks there was a silicone between inner surface of the hoses and the pump. Do I need to put silicone again before I dress hoses back to the new pump?
