Default New Gulf Stream Owner

Greetings fellow RV'rs.
I am on my 3rd RV in the past 22 years, This past March 2018 I bought my 2004 Gulf Stream Crescendo 8356 with the CAT C7 diesel pusher. My previous RV was a 1999 Bounder 30E (gas) and many years before that a Damon Hornet 25 foot TT.

Before I tear my RV apart looking for it, does anyone know where the water pump is located. I've searched the internet for answer/location, but have come up empty. Back in April the water pressure in the RV park dropped and I was using the pump, which worked for a couple of days before it went out.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have a TT and it took me a while to find my pump. Below my fridge is the electrical panel and the pump is behind the panel toward the outside wall. Not sure if yours would be in the same area and the location is not ideal in case of a leak.

That is a much easier place for me check first instead of tearing up the exterior panel with the city water hookup. Thanks of the advise.

I found my pump by accident. I had unscrewed the panel to swing it out to access the wiring so I could install AC and DC digital meters for monitoring volts and amps and saw the pump in back.
Since yours is a 2004 you may want to pull your Propane/CO detector to check the expiration date. They have a date code and should be replaced every 5 years. Mine was not flashing any lights but was expired by 2 years. I bought a new one and installed. It was on the adjacent wall of the fridge.

This may sound too easy but can't you hear it run?

I wish it was that easy. It just quit running and I hear nothing when I turn the switch on and off. I tried again last night, when I found the main switch on the status panel. There is a secondary switch in the bathroom, which is what I was using when it went out. The pump started to slow down quite noticeably before it went out and happened in a matter of minutes.

The water pump is located in the first compartment forward of the left rear wheel. The "Full Timer" water filter is in the same compartment. I hope yours is the same as it couldn't be easier to get to.

Restorium, Yes, I think you directed your reply at me since Althotos pump is not running. I could hear mine run. This took place shortly after I bought my TT in Nov. last year. The pump vibrates quite loudly when running. So loud that I couldn't pinpoint its location for a couple weeks. I never thought it would be almost 2' behind the electrical panel.

I will have to work on mine again to try and insulate or isolate the pump to lessen the noise. I did notice my pump sits on 4 isolation pads and is screwed to the floor through the pads.

They make some really nice quieter ones.
