Jamestowndistributors.com is a good place and have a Jabsco max vsd pump on sale. I just ordered one for a customer. I have used several of them on boats (mostly european make boats - hince 24 volt.) and was always satisfied. It is 3.7 gpm which should be sufficient. They don't come cheap but quality usually doesn't.

Jabsco, 12 volt DC pumps are still great.

Some noise - not much. Always use accumulator tank. Bigger the better. Brand Andy suggested are usually pretty good too. Check the gpm specs before buying.

Wrong voltage

Unless your AS has been modified. You have a 12 volt DC system, therefore you need a 12 volt pump; not 24 volt.

Battery bank is 24v , so for any device that is not a super light load it is easier and more efficient to go 24vdc.
I also have a lot of 24vdc components from other projects (PLC,LED,etc..) that I can re-purpose into the trailer.
I will have a DC-DC converter for the 12v loads but I want to try and limit them to as small as possible.

Looking at retrofitting one of these into a small freezer under fridge for 24v opp..

I have two 12V batteries for storage, solar panels to recharge and use the DanFoss fridge on 12V as well as the water pump and lights. Also can charge all my electronics using DC adapters without the loss of a converter.

Bill which fridge do you have?

I was also looking at this one @ AVG 40W/H - can be had in the $1200 range

24v is fine until you run into a need to cross pollinate with the rest of the world, then it might get a little "interesting". Do you run your tow vehicle on 24V too, the umbilical will be a little confused for most 12v TV's
