I was curious about that. I knew you had upgraded everything, but I'm super jealous that you had brass right out of the gate. All the valves on mine are plastic, and not very confidence inspiring. I use compressed air though, so that particular valve never gets used, but the three behind the WH feel CHEAP. So I may replace them when I do some other upgrades. Just in case you wanted to know, I plan to use your setup as a model when I do mine; pretty much planning to do the exact same thing.

Back to the OP's issue: I look forward to reading your findings and how you end up resolving the issue.

Wow great information, and as always thank you.

It's under warranty, and they didn't fix it the first time I had it in there so I'm going to give them another chance.

Very interesting though

There are 2 'winterizing' valve sets:
One set allows the pump to draw anti-freeze directly from the bottle instead of water from the freshwater tank.
The other allows the water heater to be bypassed so it is NOT filled with 6 or 10 gallons of anti-freeze.

Regardless of how badly positioned any of those 5 valves are, they won't produce the random cycling of the pump you described.

Only a leak from the pressurized side of the water system to atmosphere or a sink will do that.

It's possible a low-point drain was not seated properly (fairly common), but you would have noticed a wet spot or dripping under the RV.

If my fresh water tank is empty, my puimp will cycle. I dont know for how long. Realized it after 2 years of ownership. Why wife was cleaning and I keep hearing it. She had used the last bit of water.

Watch those cheap plastic valves also. I had 2 of them leaking on my water heater bypass. Replaced all 3 of the valves with brass sharkbite valves and they work great.

I watch them like a hawk. Luckily all those valves are in or near places I access frequently, so paying close attention to them is easy. Eventually, my chore list will get short enough () and I'll replace them as a preventative measure.
