I am in the process of replacing the fresh water pump intake screen after I found water dripping from between the grey water tank mounting flange and the Scamp
floor. Upon investigation, I found water around the fresh water pump. The drip became visible when I was changing the level of the Scamp
, connecting to the truck in a slightly inclined driveway. The leak was very slow and it was on the pump intake side, so low pressure. Inspecting the screen I found that screen housing was cracked where the barbed connection is made.
One contributor may have been high stress from the hose clamp, another, more probable contributor is the pump vibration on its rubber mount which stresses the barb connection.
This is what I bought:
as a replacement for the one on the left, not made any more:
I hope the replacement is more robust, I should have it tomorrow.
I am posting this for info and an encouragement to others to go after any little leaks
with passion, so we read less about rotten floors. The crack in the screen housing looked old, but was small and I was lucky to notice it.
