Water Pump

Have a question on my fresh water pump, I have a Jayco Whitehawk 23MBH, First time we have used the water pump, bought new last September, I was wondering if it is normal when you open the faucet slightly that the pump will kick on and off, when fully opened it seems to stay on continuous but at lower volumes cycles on and off, maybe this is normal..

Thanks

I think what you are describing is the normal cycling of the pump on and off as it is controlled by a pressure switch.

Sounds like normal operation.

Yep its normal, and the only way to reduce the cycling is to install a accumulator tank which some of us have done.
