Bob I think I will go with the ShurFlo OEM kit which has the plastic hoses,

http://www.amazon.com/SHURFLO-94-591...ess+connectors

on the off-chance that the hoses vibrate against something else, in which case the stainless hoses would be noisier IMO, albeit safer leak-wise. Given that (unlike hoses at a household washing machine which are usually under pressure), the ones at our FC20 pumps will only be under pressure every so often. YMMV

Peter I should probably share my conversation with JC. Originally I looked at the SFlo website and contacted them (twice). What I was seeing in the field appeared to look like what was on their website. I never got a response so contacted JC for a part number. Their response was non specific in that it was a plain ol' flex hose and not the kit hoses.

So maybe there is some dampening characterization to the kit. I'm not concerned about the pressure as the AS regulator is 65 lbs. SS may not be a real advantage here(IMO). At any rate, I'll await your experience.

For me...SS or SFlo kit will follow if I can't turn up the stereo any more ; )

Bob

Thought maybe it was broke as you haven't posted any new songs. RIP Merle Haggard . . .

As a former (perhaps still) boater, with over 16-years living aboard, I've had my share of water pump issues. Now on a motorhome, what I've done is install good thick (1/2-inch) rubber washers for the fastereners to the plywood. Second, and perhaps the most important, installed a pressurized accumulator. This stops the constant on/off running of the pump, allowing a more even water flow. Also cuts way down on wear and tear on the pump. You should be able to get this at most boating stores. My go-to resource is Fisheries Supply, in Seatle. They mail order.

Get rid of the cheap noisy pump and you will find its a big improvement in itself.You will enjoy higher water pressure also.All for $110 and 10 mins.

I would like to replace mine but the water pump is located in an almost inaccessible location on my Classic 25fb. When you open the adjacent wardrobe floor hatch the water pump in not straight down but off closer to under the fridge. When I remove the panel behind the cabinet under the fridge its in the back. There are heating ducts, wiring and PEX pipes all around it. There isn't any available room for a new one and the Shurflo isn't plug n' play with the Aquajet with the clip-in hose connections. It would be difficult to get a PEX tool in there to modify the plumbing from what I can see.

You have to remove the clip in connectors. Does yours have the white hoses?

I am hoping to install a diverter valve to send city water to my fresh water tanks. Anyone do this and what hardware is necessary?
