No never had that problem. I had to replace the pump on my Centri due to low output. How often do you clean your PG????

Yes, we have had pump wires corrode on us

I know PG does not recommend cleaning by water but rather blowing. I find you must hose those things down daily, then dry as best you can with a blower.

Just another time consuming issue with them.

if it has the same pump as ours you should be able to remove the cover and crimp a new wire on to the conector

I've just made it a habit to replace the wire harness in the winter time so you're not fighting with those problems through the year. The little regulator is best if you gum up with marine lube so to keep the contacts from corroding.
