Water Pump - working, then no power? (1977 Safari 23')
New to the Forums, and in my Airstream lifestyle, so please be gentle!
I'm living "off-grid" in a 1977 23' safari. The trailer has a solar panel on the roof to recharge the batteries. When I moved in (early May 2020), the water pump was working great, and I would simply turn it on at the control panel any time I needed to have running water for dishes or the lavatory, etc.
About 2 weeks ago I went to switch on the pump, and it didn't fire on. I checked the inline fuse (Bussman 20A), which was intact. I figured the pump was dead, so I ordered a replacement pump. Because the 2088 model was discontinued, I went with the Shureflo 4088 (12v DC, 3.0 gpm).
I replaced the pump, but it still will not turn on with the switch on the control panel. This makes me think there is an electrical issue somewhere else in the trailer, but I didn't notice any blown fuses in the fuse panel at the front of the trailer (behind the lounge).
I'm at a loss on where to go from here, and would appreciate any ideas. Is there another electrical panel I should check?
Any advice is much appreciated!
