Casita 2001 SD 17 water pump noise

Haven't had this unit about a year. I though the water pump was a little to noisey, so thought I would check it out. It is located in rear left corner with no why to get to. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm leaving it alone for now. It looks like I may have to cut battery box to get to it, if need arises. Any other way I'd be interested. Thanks

Yes its in the back corner but no do cut the battery box. Just take out the screws that hold the bench in. If you remove the screws that hold in the power panel you can then pull it forward and turn it sideways to go though the hole. I think the bench it held in by 4 screws on the top side and 4 along the floor. This gives you access to the water pump and back of the hot water tank. As for the noise, if if a thumping noise then that is pretty normal. Some people have has success with adding rubber hoses to the pump to absorb the pulses from the pump, others have added a small accumulator in the system.
