This is one of the reasons why I put a 35 gallon water tank on my roof, that and it comes in handy to wash the sand off everything.

An extra water pump is good insurance, and it will fit in the spare kitchen sink I carry at all times…just in case.

In that case, if you ever replace that 18 year old pump, I'd buy a new one to use as a spare since once that 18 year old pump dries out and rattles around the back of your RV for a year, there's no guarantee it's going to work when you need it.

A small side story about my brother regarding an RV water pump... He bought an older half way decent motor home but, the water pump was buried inside an island peninsula on the floor under the cabinet. It was so close to the outside wall even twiggy couldn't get to it. I cut an opening in the side of the motor home and placed a 20x 20 matching compartment frame and door in perfect location. He came home and saw that, could not believe it... the water pump was right there handing you a piece of cake when you opened it. LOL, he was very happy to finally change the bad pump for a new one.
