Just buy another pump and keep in the compartment where the water heater is. Mine fits easily along side of the water heater and then you always have a backup. Cheap, easy solution that does not require cutting, drilling or any mods.

Might be worth practicing changing it with soap in your eyes.

My 84 1/2 PT 36 had a second low point drain (faucet) in the propane bay.

I have a third one under the bathroom sink, it's just hard to see the valve.

On my 84 1/2, the low point valve under the bathroom sink fed the faucet in the propane bay so you had to have the faucet and the bathroom valve both open in order to drain the lines.

My propane bay is up by the entry door, and the faucet in there's fed from a valve under the kitchen sink. Interesting, and it took me a while before I found the bathroom one!

Have to try that. I have the same in that location.
Have only used that faucet when hooked up to shore water.
Will try that!
Thanks for the idea!

That makes sense, my propane bay was in the same place but my interior layout was the opposite - kitchen sink was on the driver side and bathroom was on the passenger side.
