Water pump issue

Hey guys so we are having issues with our water pump on the 17z. When we are running off the holding tank and turn on a faucet the pump comes on and off every few seconds it doesn't hold pressure constant. Any suggestions or tips?

Thanks in advance

the pump runs every few seconds with the tap partially open? That sounds normal to me. if you open the tap fully it should run constantly. At least it does in my TT.

That's normal. The difference in pressure you're experiencing is the hysteresis of the pump switch between on and off.
