Check the working pressure of the water heater. Mine said 30psi max so I got a 30psi shurflo pump 👌

Flow rate and pressure are different things, just the same as Voltage and Current are.

For a camper you need an ideally submersible pump which can maintain minimum 2-3 litres per minute with a minimum applied load (or pressure which is created by restricting flow or ‘head’, vertical lift distance) of approx 5psi or 0.3bar, which represents an absolute minimum 5metre pure lift (or “pressure head’) capability.

DIFCUL 12V Submersible Water Pump, 840L/H High Flow Pumps, Micro Motor Water Pump for Motor Home, Pond, Aquarium, Fish Tank Fountain https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09MLZ2MTH/?tag=mhf04-21

840lph is about 15min @ no load, in reality you’d get about 1/4 of that flow (3-4lpm) with this installed in a typical camper application, with the pump both driving through the pipes and lifting approx 2m.

A maximum pressure is the absolute maximum pressure the system can withstand. It is not the ‘recommended’ working pressure.
