Hello, I need to replace the Shurflo 2088-403-444 water pump that is in my Holiday Rambler motorhome. This pump is 2.8 GPM, 4 Amps, 40 PSI and I'm looking for something about the same to replace it. I'm finding a lot of models and brands out there and I'm hoping for some recommendations. Thank you.

I would get a later model of the Shur-flo pump.

I recently replaced my older Shurflo pump with this one, and I’m happy with it. It’s quieter than the old pump. I’m not sure how it compares to a new Shurflo, though.

To me, water pumps are water pumps (interchangeable). Pick one with a good price. 2.8gpm is not a high capacity pump. Anything you find will be usable. Put a filter on the inlet to protect it from debris.

Regardless of how many gallons per minute a pump is capable of pumping, the shower head on your shower, the kitchen faucet, and even the flow of water in your toilet, all have step down or restrictive water savers built into them that will permit only so much water to flow. Any water pump or water source (if plugged into a garden hose) will not change the amount of water that comes out of the end of your faucet. So, might as well replace with just about any water pump that fits your budget.

Don't believe me, remove the shower head off your shower and catch the water in a bucket. Time it and see how long it takes to fill. Now do the same thing with the shower head on, and you'll find it take twice or even three times longer to fill the same bucket.

Take a look at the year of the OPs coach. 1989
He may not have flow restrictors.
The Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 mandates that "all faucet fixtures manufactured in the United States restrict maximum water flow at or below 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 80 pounds per square inch (psi) of water pressure or 2.2 gpm at 60 psi.

Even with modern restrictive fixtures, a pump that puts out more volume and pressure will make them function MUCH better than a smaller pump. By "better" I mean they will flow more water with better pressure.
I have a very good pump (no longer abvail.) I've been moving from trailer to trailer that makes all the difference.

One thing for sure check around for the best price and compare the exact same model number on the Pump as well as on the Box!
Recently at the Arizona Marketplace in Yuma I found the exact same item for Three different prices at the Three Vendors of RV related merchandise!

A Hint ....don’t buy from the First Vendor you come to!

Shop them all and compare the items you need!

My Pump cost Me $69.00 US + Tax
I saved $40. But could have only saved $20.
