Lifted it slightly, and slid a $2.00 black mouse pad under it and then screwed the feed back down through the mouse pad. Now, the pump is almost silent. You have to listen carefully to hear it.

A $2 mouse pad as an isolation mat. Why couldn't AS simply do this simply thing when assembling?

It's funny you mention that. I called Airstream service and they told me the same thing. Just put a mouse/rubber pad under it. I was like really? I said, well thanks for the info.

My 2015 not only chugs but has the sound of a faint VW Bug horn. AS says that's normal, but never heard that sound on the past two AS.

Removed the cheap and noisy (knocking) factory pump and spent $100 on a Shurfo Revolution pump(available online or Camping World).
Took 10 mins to install,now I have a quiet pump that produces more shower pressure.

Kept the factory pump and mounted it on a board,attached some alligator clips to the wires Put clear hoses on inlet and outlet and use it to transfer fresh water out of my 8 gallon water jugs to my Airstream holding tank when boondocking.I power it with a portable jump box that I carry with me.
