Just Googled for ShurFlo Manual Water pumps and found a bonanza of documents! Sigh, if I only had time to download.

At anyrate, if you need documentation for a ShurFlo water pump, other than what's in the Document Center, check here: ShurFlo

Paula, here is the page from the Canadian Coast Catalogue . Use the "Previous Page" "Next Page" arrows at the top to see more similar items.

Attachment 3277

If your pump is the chrome one in the middle, they list a repair kit for it for about $12 CAD. The complete pump is $45. You can order directly from this site or you can go to your local RV dealer with the part # and they can get it in for you. This particular order page is linked to Apache Camping Centre in Thornhill.

If your pump doesn't match any of these, then just pick one out that will cover the old hole. Our older Trillium had the 20345 for use with the freshwater storage tank and it had the 24922 pump on the next page hooked up to the city water supply side.
Thanks, Charlie ! That's the one
I'm going to buy a repair kit and have a go. If that fails, we'll buy a replacement.
Thanks to all who replied. I really have learned a lot.
(I think these little pumps are NEAT !)

best wishes, Paula

Our Boler has a little lever on the water tap that is moved back and forth to pump water somehow (in little squirts). Can anyone tell me how this works ? and why it keeps losing its prime ? Any ideas for fixing this would be really welcome. Thanks in advance !

Probably got some mineral build inside of it. They are very easy to take apart and clean. That's what I had to do. I can't remember just how they work, but it's very basic. It will be self explanatory when you get it apart.

On my current ValTerra, when the lever is left toward the sink, the line drains; when the lever is left towards the wall, the prime stays put. But that's with the lever on the right-hand side of the pump -- It's possible to swivel the output 180* and install the assembly with the lever on the left (for a left-handed person), so the lever would work backwards from what I described. Mine has a little label under the lever describing the actions.
