My NTU 91 coleman, sun valley, by fleetwood pop up, does not have a water pump. I had to re install the water tank, and there is no longer a pump handle in the sink. I am looking for a decent pump for someone on a tight budget. I have a backround in the automotive repair industry so wiring is not a problem just looking for something that will work for a decent amount of dollars. Thanks in advanced for any advice.

Thanks Trey.

Try eBay...some on there for less than $50.  I have surflow pumps in my boat and work well...not sure what is in my PUP but know they are probably the most common for RV use.  The addition of an accumulator tank is nice to keep the pump from cycling but not required if on a tight budget.

We added a Shureflow to our 2002 Cottonwood a few years back. It works great!, but it was rather loud. I put a rubber pad under it and wrapped the inlet line with some insulation, those modifications quieted it down to an acceptable hum.

While I was at it, I replaced the pump faucet with a standard faucet from a wet bar. The higher neck makes washing pots much easier.

Last year, when I had some cash, I added a hot water heater and an outdoor shower. DW was most pleased with hot water.

So .... be careful with what you start, over time you may find yourself adding more and more to your trailer as well.

Thanks so far folks. The reason for the tight budget is we are leaving in a month for a weekend trip and with having to buy all of the basic stuff i am looking into things that will make it easier on us.

Look at the link in my signature.  I added a water pump to my old Sedona.  It was the higher end Shur-Flo Whisper King.  

When I got the Niagara I wanted to put a Whisper King in there too but after adding soft faucet riser water lines and an accumulator plus some rubber washers under the pump's feet it was almost inaudiable.  At least as good as the WK.  I plan on doing similar to the new HTT.  However, they already have soft water lines connecting the pump to the rest of the system, so that's a start.
