I have a 1986 Triple E Empress 32ft motorhome.


Everything used to work fine but last summer I it a pot hole and now the water pump only works when the ignition key on and the signal light on. Also the water pulsates to the signal light.


Just wondering if anyone has ever had a demon like this or can point me in the right direction.

Sometimes rewiring is easier than trouble shooting.

desertdeals69 is probably correct, but it sounds as though you have lost a ground someplace.  Rewiring will probably be best.  I think my pump is wired with #12 wire which is a standard big box store item.  Just be sure to get stranded wire.
