Smile Newbie just bought an oldie!!

Hi from Minnesota! I bought a 1994 Jayco Eagle 220bh in April. Remodeled the entire inside and just came back from her 3rd camping trip. I wanted something small that I could pull and handle myself and I have a few questions. Anyone else out there that have this model? The pump is super noisy and water pressure from fresh water tank is super weak. I can light the water heater but I get no water out of the hot side of the facets. Thinking maybe I have a valve that is dumping into my gray instead of going to the faucets?? Just guessing. None of the valves are marked. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!!

Welcome to the forum. There maybe a hot water heater bypass valve that is open but I still get flow from the hot side of the faucets on mine when the HWH is bypassed. But thinking out load. There are 3 valves to bypass the HWH on mine. If all the valves are closed or even just the bypass and the delivery side of the HWH are closed there wouldn't be flow at the faucet.

Edit: I don't have or ever owned your model so you may or may not have the bypass valves like mine.

Looks good. Yes, you are correct. So the "bypass" valve should be closed, and the valves to and from the tank should be open.

Pump noise, common complaint, it is primarily from vibrations. Few things you can do; Apply a little foam pipe insulation to the pipes near the water pump, primarily focus on the cold water outlet from the pump. This pipe can rattle up a storm. Another thing people have done is replaced a short section of the outlet pipe from fairly ridge pex to something soft, that does not transmit the vibrations. The pump, is securely mounted to the floor. Many people place something under under the pump to dampen the vibrations. Most commonly seen things is pink Styrofoam, industrial rubber backed carpet.

Pump Volume; that is also a common complaint. If the volume is great, you will drain your FW tank fast. Your volume should be around 2 to maybe 3 gpm, and the pressure is fairly low. On the pump there is a filter screen, the housing is probably a little smaller than a tuna fish can. Open it up and clean the screen. I clean mine every fall as part of my winterizing process.

Nice remodel. I'd enjoy seeing a few more pictures and perhaps a dedicated thread to what all you did.

I added the foam under the pump and flexible pipe used for water connections to cut vibration. I fond the white, hard plastic pipe was a big part of the cause. It was screwed into 1/4 cabinet wood that acted like a drum head. I reinforced it with some glued on plywood that cut it down a bit. Our 2 year old grandson says there is a bear growling under there!

If your pumps runs when you turn on the hot water then yes you are dumping water somewhere.

If the pump doesn't run then one or two of your valves are closed.

Would also like to see more pics of your remodel.

Thank you!

That makes sense about the pump running when turning the hot faucet on. I will check that out. I had someone look at it yesterday and he said that one of the valves coming from the hwh is not working correctly. When he turns it will open then closes on its own again. Looks like i will need to replace it. Ill get remodel pics out soon.

I took my trailer in because of almost the same thing. They told me I had all the valves open which is why I had cold more then hot. They told me how to fix it next time. With my dumb luck I will cross them again. They told me if you ever have a problem always remember the valves. Safe journey. I too love that table. Very white interior but looks great.
