Shur flo pump problem

I went up the our camper this weekend, which was the earliest ever for us here in Mn, anyways, I blew all the antifreeze out of the lines, so I doesn't foam at the faucet for ever, anyways, I filled the water and the pump would barely make a hum and I could hear water barely trickling into the hot water tank, I figure the pump is shot, so I took it out and brought it home, gonna see if they will warranty this, we haven't even had our 2014 Eagle RBTS 334 for a year yet, and it kind of sucked not having water the whole weekend as well.

Was your battery fully charged?

Mine acts like that when it isn't getting water from the tank. Any chance you have ice between fw tank and pump, or perhaps a little ice in the pump?

I had the heat turned on 2 days before I got there, and the temps have been in the 70's already, the city water connection works fine too.

Mine does that from time to time as well.. a quick rap on it with a soft mallet gets it running right... NOT A HARD ONE DONT PUT YOUR SHOULDER INTO IT JUST A TAP near the head of the unit..

Those pumps are usually toughner nails. Mine only gives off a light hum when it looses its prime. Just another thought, when the system was filled with anti-freeze, mine has a on-off valve between the anti-freeze suction hose the fw tank, just above where the hose to fw tank enters the floor.

I brought the pump in today to our dealer, and it checked out fine,as he was giving me the pump back, another tech grabbed it from me and said he would be back in a minute, he came back with one in a box, and said here you go, he said he has had several of those pumps come back in the last year, he did say it has a good bullet proof reputation, but there must have been a bad batch.

Be good info to know how the new one preforms. "it checked out fine" would indicate no problem with the pump.
