Arrived today and just finished installing both AC shrouds. These went on a 1983 Travco. I believe the old shrouds were original. Very bridle with missing pieces. These new Maxc/Air replacement shrouds fit perfect. Had to elongate the 2 back back holes by a 1/4” but knew that when I took measurements from etrailer specs online. Always great service. Thanks to everyone

Replaced my original Shurflo pump fromy 2009 Fourwinds Windsport with this new HYDROMAX. PEEFECT FIT! 30 MINUTES TO INSTALL. E-TRAILERS TRACKING OF MY purchase is the best I've ever used. On time delivery and was able to follow it every day. Great price for me pump! Works excellent and much quieter than my old Shurflo. I ALWAYS JAVE A GREAT PURCHASE EXPERIENCE FROM BEGINNING TO END WITH E+Trailer

The pump is slightly larger than the original and has a bypass valve. The installation was easy and operates much quieter than original we won't know how it performs till spring time when we get back to camping

Shipping was very fast. We have used Shurflo pumps in our last two 5th wheels. I have replaced 3 pumps in 7 years. I carry a new pump as a spare. I am very disappointed in the last 3 Shurflo pumps. I am carrying this HydroMax pump as my new pump to install when the time presents itself to replace the Shurflo Pump that was installed on 7/2021. I am hoping for a better experience with the HydoMax pump than Shurflo.

Ordered and received very quickly. Choose this pump to replace an existing unit that had lost a bit of power and lift. Installation was easy, took about 20 minutes as it was completely plug and play. New unit delivers great pressure with a minimum of cycling.


Comments
Still works great after a year of hard use. No leaks or loss of pressure!

The pump has been working fine in the RV since I installed it. It was a match for the original pump (SHURflo 4008-101-A65).

It works in our 2001 wilderness camper perfectly. The stock pump isn’t made anymore, so this is a good replacement.

It’s a great pump. Easy to install and after 1 year, it performs just like new.

This pump was a direct replacement. Easy 10 minutes to install. Old pump was weak and would not shut off. Hydro max has stronger flow and is quiet compared to the original (Artis). Excellent product. Forgot to take pictures.

My rating (above) is based on my initial installation and testing. I installed this a year ago and it worked flawlessly. I can't give you any long term assessment since the pandemic hit and I haven't used the RV since. That said, I do not expect any issues.

Worked great for 11 months, used in RV for kitchen sink and low-flow shower. Actually used only 3 of those months. Stopped dead one day while in use. Glad etrailer can manage the return because Valterra was not very responsive. Since I am currently needing the pump (RV on rural property while building a house)I had to buy another pump, then will get a credit when I return the defective one so I have to go without for a week until it is delivered. If I didn't need it, I could have returned defective and gotten replacement without the charge, other than shipping. I would reconsider buying Valterra if I had it to do over. A 2 year warranty is good, but replacing a water pump is not fun.

We replaced the worn out water pump last year with a HydroMax in 2018. Unfortunately when prepping for 2019 trailer use the HydroMax pump was left running dry for a lengthy time (15 minutes to 1hour) when the water tank was empty. I filled up the water tank and the pump primed and started to pump. I replaced it with another HydroMax as a precaution. One tough little pump!



- P25201
by:

I had to replace my old pump, and ordered this one. It worked well, with one issue at first. Our first trip was into the middle of nowhere, and the pump wouldn't shut off. After looking at it, I realized it was trying to increase pressure so high that it never made it, and I gave the setscrew a half turn to decrease it and it shut off. It has worked great ever since. It gave the shower a more full flow than the original one in my 2007 Itasca.

My RV has made me a jack of all trades. Along with youtube. The video helped a lot except my unit is placed in the bathroom under the sink vs kitchen sink. A tight space with my legs almost in the shower out in the hall. The angles the human body can twist! After installation, I checked for leaks I had a small leak I tightened up the leaky fitting. The pump is a lot quieter for sure I have been very satisfied with all I have purchased from etrailer. From parts for my two vent fans to installed set of tire monitor system.



- P25201
by:

Great little pump, it's well built and worth the money. I've had other, but this is top notch. I like the fact it comes with the straight bar fittings and the filter with it, meaning you don't have to order them separate. So, far it works like a dream.

Still working like a dream with NO problems at all.

Ask the Experts about this HydroMax RV Water Pump

  • Connecting to City Water On RV That Has Water Pump
    When connecting to city water that is pressurized you do need to bypass the water pump like part # P25201 that you referenced. To do that you can use a diverter like part # P23401LF. This would install after the water pump and as long as you switch it to the correct position it will allow you to have city water pressure without it backflowing to the water pump outlet.

  • Comparing FlowMax and HydroMax Water Pumps to Replace Shurflo
    Picking between the Hydromax # P25201 and the FlowMax part # LC689052 comes down to two things basically. The Hydromax draws 10 amps but has a higher pressure rating at 55 psi whereas the FlowMax # LC689052 has a lower amperage draw at 8 psi and a lower pressure rating of 45 psi. So if power consumption isn't an issue I'd go with the higher rated pump, but if you are trying to conserve power for any reason I'd go with the lower rated pump.

  • Replacing Shurflow 4008-101-A65 with ydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump
    The fittings that come with the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump part # P25201 are specific to that pump so these are the ones you will need to use. This means you'll likely need to clamp on the PEX hose onto the new fittings. It's possible you may be able to reuse your existing fittings from you old pump but we would not be able to confirm that so you will need to plan on replacing them.

  • What Pressure Does the HydroMax Pump Activate At To Provide Water Flow
    I reached out to Valterra, who distribute this line of HydroMax pumps like the # P25201 and they informed me that the pump can be adjusted to whatever pressure is needed for the application. So it doesn't have a set pressure, but will be able to be adjusted as needed to keep your water flowing properly. I've linked our review videos of this pump for you to check out as well, if you haven't already.

  • What Water Pump Will Be a Replacement for My ShurFlo 2088-403-144 Water Pump
    I do have another option for you but we do not have ShurFlo water pumps. The option I have for you is the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump - 12 Volt - 3 Gallons Per Minute - 55 psi # P25201. The HydroMax is a direct replacement for your Shurflo 2088-403-144, but I do recommend verifying the specs on your particular model though as it looks like there may have been a couple different versions of this Shurflo pump.

  • Does HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump P25201 Mount Same as ShurFlow Water Pump
    Yes the mounting dimensions of the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump # P25201 that you referenced are the exact same as the ShurFlow part number you mentioned so this would easily mount in place easily as well as wire in.

  • Troubleshooting Water Pump Not Working
    If your HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump # P25201 is not pumping that means it does not have proper priming so there are a large number of things to check out to try and isolate the problem. The list I added in the accompanying cut out is from a different water pump but the problem is the same.

  • low pressure and volume.
    What were you using as a power source when this happened? Is it possible it was a battery that had a lower charge at the time which caused the pump to lower it's output?

  • Can ShurFlo Water Pump 2088-404-144 be Replaced with HydroMax Pump P25201
    Yes, you can replace your ShurFlo pump 2088-404-144 with the HydroMax pump part # P25201 that you also referenced. This will have a higher psi rating at 55 than what you have now so you'd have improved water pressure. What you have now is 40 psi.

  • Replacement Water Pump for RV Artis PDS1-130-1240E
    I looked up the water pump you have and it's a 40 psi pump that flows 3.0 gallons per minute. The closest option we have is the HydroMax part # P25201 which can flow up to 3 gallons per minute and is rated for 55 psi.

  • Does HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump # P25201 Kick On Automatically or Use Switch
    The HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump # P25201 automatically kicks on when it detects a pressure drop from your faucet so basically you'd just use your faucet like normal and it would kick on and pressurize the system when needed.

  • Replacement for Shurflow 4008-101-A65 Water Pump
    The fresh water pumps on motorhomes and trailers are very universal in design so you should have no issues at all replacing the Shurflow 4008-101-A65 with the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump part # P25201. These two models both have a three gallon per minute capacity so I do think they would be good replacement options for one another. They are also both self-priming and have built-in check valves so again, good to go.

  • Can the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump Be Connected To a Garden Hose
    The HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump part # P25201 is not designed to attach directly to a garden hose but rather a hose with blunt cut end. If you prefer a threaded connection then you would want to use the Valterra RV Pump Kit part # P23512PB but as far as any adapter goes we do not offer this though I am sure one could be obtained locally at a home improvement store.

  • Fresh Water Pump Randomly Comes On without any Faucets Running in Trailer
    The first thing I would do is check for leaks. It is possible, even though the trailer was winterized, something froze and cracked. It may not be a bad leak but a leak nonetheless could cause the system to steadily lose pressure which would make the pump run. Since pump # P25201 is automatic it would either be that (loss of pressure) or an electrical issue. You can check the connections and clean any corrosion or debris away. Corrosion could cause a short and make the pump run. I can't...

  • Why Would RV Water Pump Cycle Off and On When Not in Use
    It's possible a valve isn't sealing well but normally this problem is a slow leak somewhere. The Water Pump # P25201 does have a one-way check valve that was designed to prevent backflow contamination of fresh water. If somehow this went bad it could cause the problem you described so if you go over everything and can't find a leak the pump is at fault.
