Interesting that the table doesn't include a malfunctioning check valve as a possible cause for a pump cycling on and off unnecessarily. Hhhmmmm.....

Great ideas, thank you! The "crud" hypothesis is highly conceivable. Right now I'll just take it to the dealer and let them investigate. If there is a way to get a filter placed before the pump, I'll ask them to do that.

As for noise, I don't find the pump to be especially noisy. I can hear it but it's not vibrating the whole camper. Overall, it seems to be very well built. Everything on it is solid.

On the road to fixin'

Liberty Outdoors sent me to Miller Trailer Sales in Perkasie, PA in order to honor the warranty. I drove the ParkLiner out there yesterday (heavy rain, no fun). It's a nice small family-owned business. The husband is a master mechanic. Since my last post here, I also found that when hooked up to city water, the water tank gets filled up and proceeds to gush water out the water intake on the side of the camper. This is really sounding like a check valve is broken. I've tried out the city water hookup before and nothing went into the tank, to my naive frustration at the time (he he, I was trying to fill up the water tank using the city hookup which is not the way to do it). I looked at the pipes around the water tank and the pump, and since there is pipe connecting city water, pump, water tank, a check valve gone bad in the water pump sure seems like it could end up with water moving from the city water intake into the water tank. I showed the cycling to the mechanic, and explained the city-water-tank-filling issue. He said he'd seen that before and he plans to just replace the water pump. I guess taking it apart and trying to fix it would take him longer than just replacing it. I asked about adding a filter upstream of the water pump, but as Wayne said, there is no room for it. I hope to have the camper back next week, and will post an update here.

Yes, I would like to see Parkliner do a redesign of the pump plumbing; add a filter and shutoff valve at the tank outlet. But, then that filter needs to be accessible for replacing. They also need to put a loop in the hoses into and out of the pump to help reduce vibration (noise) transmission to the camper shell.

Mine is noisy. I'll have to check for the loops.

Thanks Wayne!

It's interesting that you went to one of the recommended dealers for a repair. I actually called Miller this week to ask when they will have the Parkliner on their lot so I could see the new one. I was told they would not carry the Parkliner but would only continue the teardrops from Liberty. Hmmm.... I'll give the guy at Liberty a call tomorrow to find out what I need to do to find a dealer close to me in Delaware!

Diane, I'm glad to show you my ParkLiner, I'm in Somerset, NJ 08873. But it's not the new one. Basically it'll be the same camper, same layout but it'll have a double hull with insulation and a few other design adjustments that don't really change the overall design of the camper. The closet will have a door, and the bathroom door will have a mirror. If you look at the rally calendar, there'll be a gathering in NC in the Outer Banks the weekend of Oct. 8. It'll be sponsored by Liberty, so they will surely have the new model. I plan to go and check it out, but I'm keeping mine as of now.

Update: the mechanic took apart the pump and found dirt lodged inside it. He's replacing it with a new pump. He'll give me the old pump as a backup. He'll also add a filter to the new pump. ParkLiner will pay for it which I appreciate. I hope they included a filter in the new design.

Mary...thanks for the invitation. I'll be in Somerset area in about 2 weeks for a doctors appointment so, if you don't mind, will message you with the date. I'd love to see your Parkliner.

ParkLiner Water Pump

It would do well for ParkLiner to add an inlet filter, a tank outlet shut off valve, and loops in the lines, as well as vibration isolation mounts, to reduce the noise.

Issue with fresh water tank.

I'm also having a problem with my fresh water tank filling when I'm connected to city water. And the fresh water tank is leaking into the area that it is located. I have sent Parkliner 3 emails (last one today) using their "Service Request" on line and have gotten no response. I called last week and left a message and haven't heard back. I picked up my Parkliner on January 31, 2017 at the factory.

If I do not hear from them by next Wednesday, I will go on their Facebook page and complain about their lack of service! They seem to have forgotten about the owners since Liberty Outdoors took over.

I am seriously thinking about selling my Parkliner and getting a Casita. At least Casita will stand by their product.

Check the clamps on the hoses. One might be loose.
