Default Water Pump???

My water pump cycles for about a second every 30 or 40 minutes... I am not finding any water inside the coach or outside... is this normal??? At first I thought it maybe repressurizing, but due to the fact my tool box consist of a screw driver and a credit card I figured I should ask someone in the know

Thanks in advance

Mine turns on occasionally like that when the icemaker is running....has to be a pressure drop somewhere to tell the pump to wake up.

First thing to check is the tank fill switch in water bay. Second, sounds like an air leak into water system or a water leak somewhere, if the fill switch is off and you have water in water tank.

Is there a check valve on the pump output side?

I had this happen about 3 years ago. Drove me crazy! Finally changed out the water pump and that fixed the problem. I surmised that it was the internal check valve in the pump that was allowing the pressure to bleed back into the water tank.

Is the cap on your outside inlet the create and vacuum to help close any valves? If you have no air leaks into the system you may have an internal pump issue.

Does your 98 have an accumulator tank in the water system? If so, it may have lost the air in the bladder causing the pump to be more sensitive to pressure changes.
