Quiet water pump

We have a 267 BHS and we camp a lot in places where we fill the fresh water tank and use the pump.
The pump works fine, but is loud, especially if someone is flushing the toilet in the middle of the night.
Anybody know of any really quiet aftermarket pumps that I could replace the original with?

I purchased this item on Amazon and it cured a similar problem you are having.

I had one on my boat and loved it, lasted many years before the internal bladder gave out.

Jabsco 30573-0000 Marine Pressurized Water Accumulator Tank with Bladder (1-Liter)

This Accumulator Tank is intended for installation in any pumped water system controlled by a pressure switch. For example, PAR-MATE 2.5 or any Jabsco pressure pumps as found in boats, RV's, motor caravans, coaches and similar applications.

The Accumulator Tank smooths water flow and reduces on/off cycling of the pump by lessening the variation in pressure and flow between the pump and the outlets in the system.

The even flow of water gives better control of hot water temperature especially noticeable with instantaneous gas water heaters and with showers.

The reduced on/off cycling reduces noise from the pump motor, and from shock pressures (pipe hammer). It alsoreduces battery drain, and gives longer pump life.

This is something simple and cheap you could try. Haven't done it on my new trailer, but did it on my 2 previous trailers and next trip out will do it to my Jay Flight. Buy some of the gray foam insulation for copper pipes. Get the size that will fit snug around your water lines. Then try to find anywhere lines are touching each other or a wall. Put 3" pieces at places where they touch. At pump, and under sinks. I was surprised how much noise comes from the lines vibrating against each other and this has worked well for me. Shouldn't even have to secure with Ty wraps or anything.

I did the foam wrap and the flexible hose from pump to pex and it worked great

Your old mouse pad under the water pump also works...
