Water pump access

Postby SEP » Sun Dec 30, 2007 11:08 am

I have a 99 Cardinal 27RLX it seems that the only access to the water pump on my 5ver is in storage area forward on left side. This makes winterizing very difficult. Hope I never have to replace pump. Wondering if there is access over the pump in bed room under the floor.

Hey SEP, WELCOME to the club!!!! :D
I don't think there is. I know on mine it sits below the shower.

My 04 has the water pump on the roadside and is accesible through the storage compartment door which is fairly large about 18 inches high by 36 inches in length, like Wayne's it is just below the shower. It also has a hose and valve to draw the antifreeze into the system.

They have changed the access doors through the years and made them larger. What are the size of your access doors on your 99 model? Does your pump have the hose to draw the antifreeze into the ststem?

We don't know a stranger only friends we haven't met yet!

My storage compartment seems to be the same on the road side I have to pull a panel back and reach fwd, between water tank and outside wall I can just reach in disconect water line off pump and conect another line to run atifreeze through. Good thing I'm tall so I can reach it. would like to to put in a three way valve but there is barely any room for on in line from tank to pump. The current location is poor for service between outside wall and tank.

Hi SEP, on mine I have two access doors on the rear wall of the basement. The curbside door gives access to the converter and the back of the circuit breaker panel. The roadside door gives access to the water pump and water filter.

You may want to consider removing the access door wall. Last summer I installed an AC power monitor in the converter area. I found that I could remove the rear wall by removing four wood screws. Once the screws are removed the wall can be move forward then out of the basement. I then had total access to whole area behind the wall. I never could have installed the monitor working through the access door.
