Fresh water air pump conversion

My 62 Ambassador originally had the air pump to pressurize the water tank for use when not connected to city water. Has anyone converted over to a regular pump? If so where does the new pump such as a surflow go in the system?

The PO installed a 110 v airbrush pump, but I would like to have a 12v option for water as I really do not want to purchase a generator at this time.

I appreciate any information on this.

I installed an on-demand PAR pump, along with a plastice fresh water tank to replace the leaking steel tank. I replumbed the fresh tank into the pump, then the pump into the system. The pump has a check valve to keep the tank from overflowing.

My steel tank is just fine and does not leak. It holds pressure well, and I would like to keep the tank. I am unsure of where I would pipe a new pump in the water system.

Make sure you put the pump above your tank or put a shut off valve between the tank and pump. I prefer the first option. Checkout any RV place for a suitable pump. The one I have is a variable speed.
