Hi, all! I've wanted an Airstream for a long time. I recently bought a 2005 Bunkhouse and I'm preparing to use it. My main concern is the water system. I welcome the group's wisdom...
When the seller showed me the trailer he flicked a faucet on and water ran. I'm fairly sure he had it connected to a pressurized hose, though. (It was dark and raining when I arrived so the pre-buy inspection was brief.)
Now I find that the pump isn't working. I flicked the switch and it ran for a bit and stopped. For testing, I disconnected the outlet hose and let it empty into a bucket. The pump moves almost a gallon, slowing the entire time, and finally stops. If I let it rest for awhile it'll run for a little bit more.
My guess is that my pump motor is overheating. The model number on my pump is 5502-6V15-0668. I ordered the closest replacement I could find on Amazon.

Is this a common problem? Is the pump I ordered it likely to solve the problem or am I barking up the wrong tree? Do I just need to clean/lube/... the pump?
After this I'm going to learn about the water heater, replace the leaky shower head (and valve?), ...
