Well, I bit the bullet and ordered the Whisper King - hope to install it this weekend. Also ordered a 10 gallon gas/electric water heater. Need to give credit to the supplier. Got free shipping and the best part - ordered this stuff Sunday evening - it arrived today.

Have to Admit This

Well the water pump that I mentioned above that wouldn't build pressure....

urr... ahh - well it seems I fired it up and watched the new clear lines I installed under the sink - nothing, no water movement. So I ordered the new one and actually read the directions.... figure out where this is going yet.

Instructions for the new one said make sure you open the faucets on the trailer so the new pump can evacuate the air out of the lines..... hummm maybe that's what I should have done with the old one. Sure enough - the old one works.

Still going to install the new one given the old one is noisy and cycles on for no reason at all. Anyway.... DUUUUUUHHHHHHHH

Look at it this way, it was old and it probably would fail when you needed it most. Or only the newest and best for my baby. Or by changing to a new pump you you avoided a Flailing Duframus. Not many people could see that one comming.

I am sure I would receive one of those if our water pump failed while my wife was in the shower, with shampoo in her hair...

I don't know what a Flailing Duframus is but I'm at least smart enough to know it ain't something I ever want....

Well the install was..

It was interesting. The old pump had both outlets on one side and the new one had them on opposite sides. In the space allowed for the old - the new one would have been very difficult to hook to the feed lines to. I had to turn it at an angle and insert a stainless spring to keep the line from collapsing on one side.

The instructions said not to use elbows or teflon tape - bull to both. The pump is quiet and the flow is decent. First look - I'm OK with it.

just when i was about ready to order the classic 2.8, i came across this thread.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f443...r-32191-2.html

i think i'm going to order the extreme smart sensor 4.0. a little pricey but i won't need an accumulator tank.

i have the 4.0 sitting on the floor next to me.

how bad can it be, considering were replacing one SHURflo for another... if they all sucked we would be using a hand crank...

i'll let you know.

but why buy a new water pump and a tank?

just me,
