Re: Fresh Water System questions




We had a 30 footer for nine years, and I found the foot pump to be an
excellent way to keep water use to a minimum. I like the foot pump because
it leaves your hands free. I have both a foot pump and an electric pump, and
find I use the foot pump more than the electric. Bob has a very good idea
about installing the pump so it easily maintained. Easy maintenance tends to
happen, and difficult maintenance tends not to happen until it breaks.
