Installing a new Shurflo Water pump install into an Auto Sleeper PVC this needs to be screwed into the floor or onto a wooden base which itself then needs to be screwed to the floor. It's unclear as to what is beneath the vinyl floor covering in the PVC and not possible to remove it without damage so has anyone installed a Shurflo or other type of Water pump with fixings to the floor? Just after some general guidance as I don't want to end up drilling through the bottom of the van!

All the Shurflo pumps I have seen, have been fixed upright, not the floor? A picture of the pump and situation would be helpful.
(Just had a look and I am mistaken, there are floor secured Shurflo pumps and video of fixings on YouTube)

The picture is one fitted, similar to mine, between the back of the fridge and rear N/S door on a Ducato based Murvi Morello

Don't think it matters on orientation of pump..

Thanks that is what I thought I should do. As said, don't want to screw through the flooring as I'm not sure what's below the vinyl covering. Might be some thin layer of wood I imagine but the screws could easily go through this and potentially through the metal flooring of the van.
I read to use a piece of ply or similar as that will act as an absorber to limit noise but of course fixing the ply to the floor has the problem. Was considering an adhesive or similar so thanks for confirming that should work.
