Default water pump in 1988 WB

I am in Las Vegas en route to the Q rally in Quartzsite. Apparently my water pump ran for about 4 hours even tho no faucets were on. I am rather deaf and did not hear it when I left the coach. It no longer pumps water.

I am assuming I have 2 problems at least. The signal to the water pump to shut off was either not occurring or not effective and the water pump likely burned out. I can hear it runing, but we have no water pressure.

I don't even know where the water pump is or how or where the feedback to shut off occurs.

What replacement water pumps are aviailable?

Check the "Fill" switch to make sure you turned it off after you filled your fresh water tank.

If the sporlan valve is open through either the fill switch being left on or a little bit of dirt keeping it open your water pump pumps water back to the tank and won't build pressure in the system. I had to take my sporlan apart and clean the valve a couple of weeks ago because of this. Come on down to Q and we'll get you fixed up.

So old and forgetful and A NEWBIE on top. I flipped the switch and have been saved. Thank you so much for your time and knowledge!
