Default A Quieter Water Pump on the BT5210

While I was recently winterizing my 2021 BT5210 I had noticed my water pump outlet hose resting on top of the metal wheel well cover. While the pump was running I could sense that hose pulsating and the noise amplified by the metal cover.
I placed a 14" length of split foam pipe insulation around the hose at the contact point.
Now much quieter to the point of almost not noticeable.

Default Good time to insulate

If you get a chance to insulate that wheel well do so. Really makes a much quieter ride.

Default Insulated wheel well

Super sealed and much quieter. They were like a metal drum going down bouncy roads. Not any more.
