Accumulator and silencing kit as well as some personal mods to help with the noise are on my shorter mod list. Just haven't gotten there yet. We really don't use it a lot; mostly just when we're on the road, or if DW needs water while she's setting up inside before I have the city water connected or after I have the city water disconnected during tear-down. If we were boondocking and/or using the pump all the time, it would be much higher priority on the mod list.

Overdue update

Thank you to everyone for the suggestion of the accumulator for the water pump. It has significantly reduced the cycling operation, and has considerably quieted the pump. It was a low dollar fix, and well worth the money!

Mine was cycling when I bought the trailer and I looked everywhere for a leak or air coming in .... then looked at a video on adjusting the pressure switch on pump ... turn of a screw and voila no more cycling and the pump works fine... It was just trying to hard to build undue pressure in to the system

There are pumps that have a bypass feature that shunts some pump output back to input at low flow. That feature is suppose to reduce or eliminate the need for an accumulator. We have that type of pump in our 5th wheel. It does work as advertised. Our pump is a Shur-flo 4008.

Cycling when all faucets are closed is a different issue than cycling with a faucet open. The OP was talking about cycling when a faucet is open.

Do you have a link to the video showing how to adjust the pump ours cycles for a second every 30 minutes or so and there are no signs of leaks anywhere!

Good deal!

I finally got mine installed, and I had the same results you did. No more cycling, no more jack-hammering. Just smooth, even, quiet and consistent operation all the time. Absolutely LOVE it!
