Water Pump under Kitchen sink

Airdaddy Here. 1975 31 foot Sovereign curp side bath.

Need help Please.

Does anyone have any idea where I can get the 12 volt pump the is used under the sink area??? I was ready to hoop up water to clean the bathroom and kitchen area and someone has cut the copper tubing and taken out the 12 volt water pump. I have a service manual and once again no drawings or photos. I would like to know can anyone help out on photos in the under area of the sink or explain the flow and where I hook up for power.

Please forgive me of my "Newbie" simple way of asking.

I buy these at West Marine (westmarine.com). West Marine is a boating store and you can shop on line - lots of 12 volt stuff. I never thought about putting the pump under the kitchen sink. That would make it easier to get to at repair time. Usually the pump is close to the water tank, in my a/s it's forward under the mattress (hard to get to in a hurry).

Any RV supply for example Camping World. There are multiple pumps that will work. Sure Flo is a common one.

Hmmmmm.......

Are you sure that it is a water pump. By the location, I was thinking that it might be a water filter. Dave

My '71 Overlander water pump AND filter is under the kitchen sink. Both are very easy to get to. It may have been moved over the some odd 40 years, but that's where it is now.

Installing a aftermarket pump should be fairly easy. install the pump in the the line coming from the fresh water tank. It's a good idea to put in an RV water line filter between the pump and the tank. I'm talking about a filter to catch debris, not to purify the water. They are only a few bucks. If you are felling ambitious you could put in an accumulator tank and a water purifier too.

T^he unit originally came with a PAR pump under the sink mounted on a shelf on the wall. It also most likely had a water filter, if it was the Excella model. Par pumps are still available and are diaphragm pumps with a little dc motor and a piston rod pushing on the diaphragm. They are good pumps but are a little noisy and expensive. Flotech pumps can be had at Campers World for under $75 that will do the job.

I love my original PAR pump. Its belt driven, low rpm, and the quietest RV pump I know of. Plus parts are still readily available. I replaced the pulsation dampers in mine a few months ago.

I know its there !

Didn't want to start a new thread as this one may help find a solution to my dilemma. Looking for an easy way to get to the water pump on our 97 Safari. Winterizing by pouring gallons of the pink fluid into the water tank is not what the wife wants as it leaves after-taste for months. Other threads suggested the pump was under the tall closet. Not true for our Safari. I am sure its under the sink. I cannot believe that AS engineers put this pump in a location that is next to impossible to get to. Looks like you dismantle the entire kitchen to get to it. I don't want to do that. There has to be a better way. Help !!!
