Sounds like a well pump with a leaky foot valve. I beleive you are correct in that it air lockes then when you shut it off the water flows back eliminiting the air lock.

I can't find your particular model pump but, in the picture shown, if thats yours, it looks like two pumps in one. Anyway, I'm pretty familiar with Shurflo pumps and they are diaphram pumps and, the antifreeze may have taken out the diaphams. I'd like to see a bigger picture of it.
The pump head should look something like this. I'd replace the diaphram assy.

Water water everywhere.... The pump you installed has no way of knowing when to stop. Shurflo also has a pump with a pressure switch that senses pressure drop to turn on and back pressure to stop. I'm sure the dealer that sold you the one you now have will have the proper modell for your application.. Good luck and be sure to put a filter in the line coming from the fresh water tank. You should be all set with this recommendation._Ned_

Motor on reverse osmosis runs constantly

If this is a booster pump, many booster pumps like Shurflo have an adjustment at the top (allen screw) to back off on the pump pressure, turn to left to back off on pressure. If it never shuts off this can be an indication of a bad membrane, capillary tube, flow restrictor or automatic shutoff, causing all the water to run to drain. If you have low quantities of water, but pump always runs, this could part of the problem. Also high TDS (total dissolved solids) will cause the pump to work more. The higher the TDS 500+ppm the harder it is to produce quality water. With high TDS it's almost like taking muddy water, running it through filters and getting drinkable water. So the RO and pump have to work much harder to produce any quantity and quality of water.
