Water pump leaking - 2006 Classic

It's our first weekend out in our AS and our water pump is shooting water out of the front of the pump when we have it turned on. We are new to this so have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?

The easiest and quickest thing to do is replace the pump, if you mean the water is coming out from the head and not from the hose fitting. Could you be more specific about exactly where it is coming from? Perhaps a pic?

Hard to say, but possibly it was not winterized right and the pump froze up and broke.

Replace it probably.

Pump is probably leaking out of the diaphragm. You can replace the diaphragm only but many rv parts places carry only the pump.
If so buy a new pump order the diaphragm and rebuild the old pump for a spare.
It is possible the pump froze because it wasn't winterized properly. I disconnect the intake and outflow and run the pump for a few seconds to pump out the water. It is also possible the pump wore out.
