Does anyone know how the shower pump comes out from the velcro access panel area? Can I just pull it out then unhook it

Box is screwed down. The small panel with the light and chrome pull out knob will pull out and you have access to the pump.

Thanks

Have a weird issue. Water pump stays on and something flooded the shower pump. No sinks or shower were running and shower floor was dry. Any idea what could be running water into that sump?

Someone may have ran the AC condensate line to the sump.

You are correct which over flowed the sump and got the carpet wet. I was completely baffled at why the floor wasnt wet but the sump was flooded. Thanks. Why is there even a sump and not through hull like all sinks?

The sump is below the water line so a gravity drain will not work. The sump should have a pump and float in it and the switch is in the head area. When the sump fills high enough the float switch turns on the pump to empty the sump to a thru hull that is above the water line.

The shower pump box has nothing to do with the fresh water pump. If water pump keeps running then either something is leaking or turned on . Make sure wash down hose in fender storage is off and all other faucets. The only thing draining into the box should be the shower and maybe the a/c.
