RE: Lifespan of water pump

The reason I posted this topic is because my camper is going to be 20 soon and I am starting to replace parts that could possibly give me a problem and are not too expensive, I was just wondering if anyone felt the same way and did the same thing.

RE: Lifespan of water pump

Anybody Have Experience with an old pump dying on them? I’m thinking of changing to a new pump in my driveway and just keep the old one as a spare , The old one is 18 years old .I’m also considering replacing the Original Convertor and keeping the old one as a spare . Does anybody else do this? Sure, old pumps can and will fail, but so can new pumps (though obviously less often), and you can't really predict when it's going to happen. Unless it's exceptionally hard to get to on the road, I'd just keep the new pump in the RV trunk as a spare and and plan to replace the old one if it breaks. But mine's easy to get to, just take out 2 underbed drawers and I can reach right in and replace it. Though mine does double duty, since my RV doesn't have a gravity fill (it takes water pressure to fill the freshwater tank), I use the pump if I need to fill the freshwater tanks from a water jug (or to pump in antifreeze for winterizing) I wouldn't bother keeping the old one (pump or converter) as a spare, do you really want to go through all the trouble to swap it out with an 18 year old replacement?. I suppose that’s a waste of time to reuse an 18-year-old pump but I go out on the beach and I don’t wanna be stuck without any water .
