Here is a link to the one I bought

I am a bit lerry of the stuff on e-bay since many of the manufacturers have multiple lines with differing specs. This way I know what I am getting. Beware of the 5.8 GMP (gallons per min) model. Shut off pressure is 100 PSI.

I do not know what the original pump GPM was, but I would guess it is in the 2.5 3 GMP range.

The current version of the pump you have is most likely:

They are inexpensive, reliable, noisy, offer direct replacement, and fairly low pressure. This is not altogether a bad thing as, if I recall, you still have the original polybutylene plumbing.

The variable speed pumps are a nice upgrade, but the chief benefit comes if there are two people using the trailer, ie someone at the sink when you are in the shower. Oh, and they are a lot quieter, as well.

The higher capacity pumps also can pull a lot of amps. Probably more than your wiring can stand. To use one you need a smaller guage wire and probably a solenoid control from the switches. The Aquajet ES is the only one I know of that can use the existing wiring.

I personally would not buy a used pump unless it was salvage from a real late model RV. And maybe not even then. Who knows where it has been or how it has been used?

I am still thinking if a faster pump is worthwhile at all, in my situation, may not be.
