hi guys, my '95 16' deluxe scamp shower drain had a 1 gpm pump in it(with 1/4" nipples). how does this make sence? i thought someone stupid installed it, so i replaced it with a new 3/4" hose from the shower to the gray tank. it now drains much faster, but still not fast enough to keep up with the faucet(hooked to municipal water). is there actually supposed to be a pump in line? if so, what size should it be?

Try this link, it is the pump and strainer used on my 2009 Scamp.

Sorry about the layout of this message, I am having problems posting here.

Yes, I think the shower puts in more water than the pump can evacuate.

B sure to take the strainer apart and clean the gunk out and if that does not work, you can make and install a platform to stand on so you will not be standing in water.
