i'll vote for 12VDC.

trying to build a camper, with no knowledge of electricity or camping, is going to be a challenge.

my coach is all electric. the only 120v stuff built in is the air conditioning and my kitchen stove. (actually the stove is 240)

sounds like another zeephod

good luck

I can see how different situations require different setups, but if you're like me you'll need 120VAC all the time anyway (my fridge and outlets are 120). In my case, the water pump's distance from the batteries would be awkward and inefficient to run at 12VDC.

Obviously, if you don't need to be running an inverter all the time then you shouldn't, and in that case a 12V water pump would be fine as long as the wiring you run to it is sized correctly (it is very common to undersize DC wiring) to avoid gross inefficiency.
