Installed a Shurflo Revolution pump it took about 15 mins and less than $100.Much quieter pump with more pressure .Big improvement with no more loud knocking.You can hardly hear it run.

Most RV pump companies do not recommend using a accumulator.

Old Pump Recycled:I attached the old pump to a small piece of wood and added alligator clips then bought 12 ft of clear plastic hose and cut it in half and attached it to inlet and outlet of pump.I now carry it with me along with a portable jump box and use it to fill my fresh water tank from 10 gallon jugs when not connected to city water.Much easier than trying to hold 10 gallon water jugs when filling tank.Also much faster.

$9 each, wow. What size do you purchase? My 55 Aquajet has 4 feet.

I'm going to check Elliott's Hardware in Plano, TX for something similar. They have a ton of specialized parts.

What is the specs on the Shurflo Revolution pump compared with the 55 Aquajet. I think the Aquajet is 5.5gal/min. However, it doesn't seem that powerful as it doesn't fill the toilet bowl faster than my previous Casita and it seems to be the same toilet.

I got the number xxx20, the small ones. Seems to be all we will need. More news when I get them installed. We live in rural Virginia, so shopping on line at whatever price is most always the most economical way to go for us. <grin>

Shurflo Revolution 4008 Pump Swap - YouTube

Seems quiet, especially when fully open.

Might be working looking at. I wonder how much re-plumbing would be needed.

I had plenty of room using the Bosch fuel pump mounts pictured above, the Classic WP is mounted under the floor shelf in our closet. The platform raises the pump about 4". The mount with the bottom flange should be about an inch off the floor.

Any update on this pump after using it a while? Really want to get a quieter pump!

I found that changing the mounts and putting in the accumulator made a HUGE difference in the sound of my water pump. I could also do some acoustical treatment if those hadn't fixed the problem.

My factory pump made a lot of noise and my water pressure was so so.For less then.a $100 dollars I got a much quieter pump, more pressure and it runs less.No need for rubber isolators or accumulator.Installation time 5 mins,

I just installed a Flojet Sensor VSD Pump - 3.7 gpm. It is amazing. Most of the time you don't even hear it run. It is a bit pricey but I think well worth the extra bucks. When you only need a little bit of water you don't hear it at all. It senses the amount of water you are asking for and only pumps that much. At max flo it pumps much more than our older Sureflo.

Go to your local hardware store and get 2 under sink water hoses that have female connections on both ends. Put these on both sides of pump and connect to original line, try to curl these lines. Shur flow manual says not to use hard tubing attached to pump, Airstream must not have gotten the message.

Costs less than $10.00

The Surflo accumulator was my first improvement, with flexible water hoses for connections to the pump. Then I added open cell foam padding wherever the hoses wanted to contact the structure. Now we barely notice sound of the pump running.
