It is a fresh water booster that is being used from a water tank to a trailer to provide water at a Duck Club.

Is there a way to get the pumping mechanism to start or would it have to be taken to a repair station?

If it is a booster,then you need to have it primed at all times,if you ran it without water you used it,use a transfer pump

Can anyone tell me where the fresh water pump is located in a 1999 Fleetwood Prowler LS 33P? I've search all the usual locations but can't seem to find it. I just bought this trailer last week.


check for wires going into the water tank, check under the sink, check under the shower(if fitted)
follow the water line from the tank back and there will be a pump in that hose somewhere

How do you get mold out of fresh tanks?


There should be a fresh water fill on the outside of the coach. If not then there is a valve that would need to be turned that will allow water to be put into the fresh water tank. If that is the case then it will be a bit more difficult to put bleach into the fresh water tank but not impossible. There will be a pump that draws fresh water out of the tank. You can disconnect the input and output lines. Connect the input line which comes from the fresh water tank to the output side of the pump. Then using a flexible line with a 1/2" pipe thread fitting, connect that to the input side of the pump. Put the loose end of the flexible line into a gallon of bleach and turn the pump on. It will draw the bleach out of the container and pump it into the fresh water holding tank. Now return the plumbing of the pump back to the original configuration. Using the valve system complete filling the fresh water tank with fresh water and allow to sit for a couple of days. Then open the low point drain on the fresh water tank and completely drain. When the coach is not in use make sure the tank is completely drained. There is also a fresh water treatment that you can purchase at your local rv parts department.

Clean waterrower tank


How did you get on with this?
I recently came back from a long holiday to find that I had a living water tank ( I normally have a curtain covering it, but it hadn't been covered properly ( or even at all).

In my case the growth looked like feathers in the tank...the rest of the water was clear.
The process I used was:
1: fully drain.
2: Flush
3: repeat until it is clean.
4: add a chlorine tab and schedule reminders on your phone.
To fully drain:
I siphoned the dirty water out using a Wilko home brew siphoning kit ( about £3) and the siphon pump that comes with the rower.
Specifically, I plugged the plastic pipe (hard) into the flexible tube by at least an inch, and CAREFULLY slide the pipe into the waterrower tank ( carefully: if the pipe comes out inside the tank, there is no getting it out).
Then I wrapped some clingfilm around the open end of the plastic tube ( to make a seal), and shoved that into the feed ( straight) leg of the siphon pump. It doesnt have to look pretty, just get a seal and be easy to remove. I could have used duck tape to make the seal, etc. Then check that the screw at the top of the siphon pump is closed, and the squeeze the bulb at the top of the pump to pull all of the water out of the tank and into a suitably sized container. I used a bucket, but you might need to use something lower, like a gardeners gravel tray, or lots of washing up bowls... depends where you keep your rower. Just have the storage ready.

The most efficient way of doing siphoning is to pump the dirty water into until it is over the height of the top of the hose, then smoothly remove the siphon pump leg, leaving just the hose to drain the dirty water into your bucket.
Back at the tank end, twist the tube so that you point the plastic pipe into the closest bottom edge of the tank, then use books to angle the tank so that it is the lowest part of the tank... gunk should fall into that corner, and your siphoning should then drain the most gunk out. I agitated the tank a little, to make sure I was getting the most muck out, it seemed to work quite well.
2: Flushing the tank.
Once the tank was as empty as I could get it, I used a fresh bucket of fresh water and filled the water rower tank - no need to remove the plastic pipe/tube arrangement from the tank at this point. Once it has at least 10 litres in the tank, you can carefully remove the pipe/ tube from the tank and spin the rower mechanism for a while: we're trying to agitate fresh water over the inside surfaces, to get the gunk into the water, rather than the surfaces. I found that it helps to stand the machine up, and carefully spin the mechanism a couple of times: it puts water over the upper surface of the tank.
Then it is back in with the tube/ pipe arrangement and drain as previously.
Then flush again with fresh water, then drain again.
At this point, my machine was clean enough to refill, add a chlorine tab ( free from the nice people at Waterrower) and job done.
The best advice.
Prevention really is better than cure: I recommend you use your phone to calendar a reminder to put a tab in every month/6 weeks or so during the summer, and every 2 months or so in winter ( UK, other countries sunlight/ temp may vary). In that way, you will never have to mess about with the siphoning kit again....

Hope it worked out for you!

Fresh water and pump is on but no water is coming from taps


Make sure the winterizing valve for the pump is not open. Locate the pump. On the input side of the pump there may be a valve in that line with a line coming from the tank and the other line laying loose not connected to anything. Turn that valve to close the open ended line which will then allow it to draw out of the fresh water tank. This would also raise a serious question as to how well the trailer was inspected during the pre-delivery inspection process...

HIdden away somewhere near your water tank, you'll find valves to open or close.. You're going to have to experiment.. You should find a line from your water tank with a valve... and you should see a line coming from the outside hose feed that has a valve. Only one of these should be on. Also, pay attention to the lines near the hot water heater... Those can be wrongly off or on.. or by-passed. You're going to have to play with it... Good luck...

How to empty you fresh water tank


There should be three low point drains located under the trailer. Two will be close, side by side, to one another. This is the low point for the entire plumbing system, both cold and hot. There will be another single low point drain which will be for the fresh water tank. The low point drains may only have a cap on them or may have a valve installed.

Diagram for using tank water


No diagrams available. There should be a tank located under the trailer with a water fill point on the outside of the trailer. Inside under a cabinet there should be a demand pump with an on/off switch located on the monitor panel. There may be a winterizing three way valve between the tank and the pump with a third open ended line used to draw antifreeze into the system. If the valve is in the wrong position the pump will not prime and distribute the water as designed. From there the pump is plumbed into the rest of the plumbing system.

Do I need a pressure tank with a Pentair Water 3/4Hp Pres Wtr System 3075Ss Utility Pumps?


Depends on your application. If you are using it to provide water to a residence or other on/off use, you need a pressure tank and a pressure switch to control it. If you are filling a open air tank, no pressure tank needed. If you are just pumping water out of a well and directly to an ditch type irrigation system no tank needed.

Ok at the place I am employed they have a 1 Hp submersible pump it pumps about 300 ft into the top of a 120 gal storage tank then the water comes out of the bottom of the tank and goes into our grundfos...


The booster should have been placed after you restrooms with a check valve to prevent back-pressure. then you can adjust both the sub-pump pressure, and the booster pressure accordingly
let me know
