I replaced the 30+ year old pump in my '79 Santana camper van with this Shurflo pump.
This camper only has a sink that uses any water so this pump was overkill but I thought it will last forever if the original pump lasted this long. The faucet has an electric on off switch controlling the pump and when you turn it on, water comes out the faucet with so much force it splashes all over the counter. Can I drop the voltage to the pump to slow it down? I tried two 1 ohm 10 watt resitors in series between the fuse and switch and it was just about perfect. Will this damage the pump motor? It only runs a few seconds at a time. The resitors get hot, will it cause a fire?
