Water Pump ... Shut it off? Leave it on?


Recommended Posts

Ok .. new to RVing here. First couple of nights out with a new (to us!) coach. We're at a State Park campground and have "electricity only" service. No big deal ... there's 100 gallons of fresh water in the tank and empty holding tanks and it's a simple overnight stay.


Using my water means I need to use my water pump as well. I'm in the "turn on / turn off" the water pump when it's needed camp.. My wife is leaning towards the "we're connected to shorepower, batteries aren't an issue - leave the pump on!" school of thought.


What does you all do? What's your logic for doing it the way you do?

We leave our pump on unless we leave the coach for more than a short time. If we had a pump switch at every wet location, maybe we'd be tempted to cycle it as needed, but with only one switch, it's more convenient to just leave it on.
