I've also had this "burping" issue for over two years, now. At first it was about once an hour; eventually worked its way up to ever 2-3 minutes. about two weeks ago, my water heater (on electric) was running almost constantly and making a lot of noise. I figured it had some sludge in it, so turned it off, let it cool down, turned off the pump and drained it. A lot of gunk came out! Turned the pump back on and refilled the tank; then turned on the water heater. What a difference! Almost silent, now. It also cut down on the frequency of the "burping"/ghost-cycling of the water pump, but it still did it about once every 1/2 hour.

A couple of days later, it occurred to me that I could use one of the two low-point drains to fill the dog's outside water dish - which sits directly underneath the drain. (Don't know why it took so long to figure that out. Must be a "Senior Issue".) Anyway, Within a couple of hours, I noticed the burping was gone! Still did it a couple of times a day, so I drained a little out of the second low-point drain. Now the burping is completely gone! Don't know why this combination of actions worked, but it did! You might give it a try.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I will look into the options.

compared to some of the problems I've read about people having, this is minor.

Disappointing though. When I picked up the trailer there were a lot of fit-and-finish issues as well.

The pump also has a check valve that holds the pressure in the lines. If the check valve is weeping a bit, it would go back into the water tank and you would never see it. Since water is non-compressible, it doesn't take much of a leak for the pump pressure switch to see a pressure drop. Back off the pressure setting slightly and your problem should go away or at least lessen in frequency. The accumulator mentioned by another poster would cure the problem.

And, you could just turn the pump off when not using water.

Just for fun, if you have a outside shower, make sure the valves are closed.

I have actually just been turning the pump off at night and will look into the accumulator.

We love the trailer, but man.... some of the quality issues are bad. And we heard Jayco was the best of them before we bought.

Our dinette bench was completely loose, shower door obviously mis-installed, bottom of one of the wards was hanging unstapled, the water pump thing, a hole in a screen. All fixed by the dealer except the water pump and they had 3 shots at it.
