We finally decided to tackle the white tank repair and plumbing before our first trip this spring.
After running some new plumbing, both copper and automotive-style rubber tubing, we discovered that our water pump, which is original part number 36800, was leaking due to a very large crack that ran through the entire base.
I plan to order a ShurFlo 8125 pump from Out-of-Doors Mart tomorrow. Any thoughts on this or recommendations?
After discovering I have no talent for sweating copper pipe, we hired a legitimate (and quite reasonable) plumber to come and do the work. He seems to quickly figure things out, where I would struggle forever and a day and make costly mistakes.
However, before I have him come out for another session in a couple days I would like to know if the ShurFlo is the right / best choice.
The only other challenge I have is that the small in-line water pump filter assembly with mesh screen had a cracked top, which is made of clear plastic. Does anyone know if this original part is still available from Airstream, or if there is a replacement that makes sense?
