The function of the fresh water tank pump

To remove the old pump, you must disconnect it from the water pipes and the power supply. Make sure you loosen all screws and connections carefully. Be careful not to cause any damage.
Step 5: Installing the new pump
Install the new pump in reverse order. Connect the water pipes and the power supply and make sure that everything is tight. Make sure to check the seals and sealing materials and replace them if necessary.
Step 6: Tests and verification
After installing the new pump, it is important to carry out a test run. Switch on the power supply and check that the pump is working properly. Look for leaks or unusual noises that could indicate problems.
Step 7: Conclusion
Once you are sure that the new pump is working properly, you can refill your fresh water tank. You are now ready to continue your journey in the Hymer Grand Canyon S incl. CrossOver without having to worry about the water supply.
