Customer Question
Water pressure doesn't last very...
Water pressure doesn't last very long. If I shut off the freshwater pump breaker and turn back on, the pressure comes back on after a minute... for a few minutes. I made sure the tank was full. Vacuume toilet works, but doesn't have much water in the bowl. Just enough for the seal. Whatam I doing wrong. I'm an inexperienced owner of the 1986 Carver 360 Mariner. How do I check out the water heater? There is a sulpher smell in the boat. Someone told me it might be the water heater.

Hello. My name is Tan.

Does the water pump run continuously when pump is on?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No. Shuts off. And then doesn't run again until I reset the breaker.

So the pump is tripping the breaker?
