I have done my research in the forums and am still stumped. When trying to get all systems running after the long winter I am having problems with the water pump.
Here's the deal:
This is a 2 year old Shur Flo in a 1974 Tradewind
The system runs fine on shore water.
When I turn on the pump it runs for a bit (building up pressure?) and holds (this tells me the system is intact?)
When I turn on the water it runs for 15 secs and then slows to a stop.
The pump continues to run for a minute or so and then stops.
I tried all the tricks I saw by reading through old posts: I have flushed the system with shore water. Opened all water, including the shower. One thing I can't figure out is where a 'check valve' might be. (I think it is buried under my closet on the street side). Someone mentioned this a potential problem, although someone else said the Shur Flo has one built in. I really don't know what all of that is about.
Someone else suggested driving around in case something is stuck in the system... said it worked for them. I will try that on my way to the repair guy.
Any other thoughts? Thanks for reading through this!
