    Hi Our water pump has gone caput. Having scoured these boards for advice we have bought a replacement pump
    http://www.marcleleisure.co.uk/stor....html?osCsid=3e8d8c33ffc994d700b1362e50045a6b
    If you scroll down on the marcle leisure page it shows a diagram that suggest you may have to cut a bit off the pump. Is this correct? It looks like the picture may have it the wrong way round.
    My husband is going to attempt fitting the new pump himself. Any advice?
    I did read somewhere that a recent MMM mag edition had instructions for fitting a pump, but although we get the magazine we can't find the article. Does anyone know if that's right and which magazine its in? Lots of thanks
    Should have said our van is a Hymer B524L 2008 if that makes any difference.

    You MAY need to cut the end bit off depending on the size of your pipework.
    The pump is designed to fit different size pipes,

    If you can hear the pump working but no water moving, Sometimes you get an airlock in the pump, in which case, jiggle it up and down in the water tank. You can also get an airlock in the system.
    Empty all water out and try again.
    If no electric at all, check fuse and connections.
    I don't remember cutting anything when I replaced mine.

    No need to cut anything on pump, it is a straight swop on the Hymer.. just remember to take the filter screen off the bottom of the old pump and fit to the new.. .. it just clips on the bottom of the pump.

    and you may need some push on crimp terminals to connect it.. depends on how yours is terminated..

    The MMM issue was August 2015. We have had problems with our water supply too, getting worse over the past 12 months. I find I have to flush the air out of the system more frequently now, when before just once on arrival did the trick. Other replies about the ease of fitting a new pump (which appear easier than the method covered in MMM) are welcome and reassuring.

    Thanks for the advice so far. I will search out the copy of MMM. Also thanks for mentioning the filter. We hadn't realised you needed to keep that. I think our pump has definitely "gone" as it doesn't make a sound. While we've been away it has occasionally started up again and then failed. We ordered the new pump while we were away and came back home to it yesterday. Tomorrow is D day for fitting. :))

    I'm no tech wizard but if you can't get a copy of the mag, I can take pictures of the article on my iPhone and email them to you if need be (you'd have to PM me a suitable email address)

    He fell in the tank and not found his way out yet.

    Hi Folks
    Thanks to Gary for offering the to send details from the mag and everyone else for their help. The fitting went well. It was actually very easy being a straight swap. We took it to Lincoln for 3 days just to test it out :))))

    mine did this and it was traced to the bog which takes the water from the fresh water tank (cs200) it was the electric one way valve gumming up staying open slightly and leaking air into the system
