I bought a Jabsco/Par 36800-1000 belt drive Diaphragm pump to replace the
original Jabsco unit on Half Magic. Same footprint although we had to redo the
manifold slightly to make connections fit properly. Three times as pricey as
the Shurflo but there was some comfort in knowing the last one took 33 years to
burn out. And service kits are available..

Also highly recommend the Shurflo pumps.
And Fred — make sure it’s fused correctly :P

Just fixed a similar problem. Replaced with a matching Shurflo Aqua King 3.0.
I have no problem hearing this pump. Hope this helps.

Hi, all — I tracked down a leak in my potable water system last weekend to an
apparent split or leak in the diaphragm on the belt-driven (probably original…)
pressure water pump on my LF38. I could probably find a parts kit for this
pump; but given its age, I’m thinking about replacing it with a new pump. I’ve
been looking at the Jabsco PAR-MAX line, specifically the PAR-MAX 2.9 or the
PAR-MAX Plus 4.0. Anybody have other suggestions for me? I don’t want a
super-quiet pump, as I want to be able to hear it run, especially when tanks go
dry; but I’d like something that hammers less than the original pump.
