Whale Universal Pump Failures
I was just getting my motorhome ready for a few days away before Christmas. The water system had been drained down and on refilling, my water pump will not prime. I have been suspicious the water pump seals have been on the way out for a few months now and the drain down and 6weeks of inactivity seems to have been the last straw.
This is the fourth time I have had a pump failure and I only seem to get about 2years life out of the seals.
I have been in touch with Whale who did on the first occasion provide me with a free replacement pump. The second time I bought a replacement pump and on the third occasion I tackled them again about pump performance and they sent me a set of free replacement seals. So I have no axe to grind about their customer service but I remain unhappy about the pumps performance.
Its a good job the pump is easily accessed and I can in fact change it and the seals quite rapidly.
Does anyone else have this problem or can anyone advise what is the likely cause. 2 years is a very short life in my view!
