2017 Rockwood Ultra control panel

Good day!

My control panel will not turn off the water pump when the switch is selected.
I removed the panel, it has a CAT 5 connector. It must go to a control box of some sort. I'm thinking the water pump has a relay somewhere.

Anyone have an idea where the control box would be located?

Thanks Mike

Is there a switch in the wet bay thats on? There has been talk here if there are 2 ways to turn something on, then the other won't work.

Correct. It does go to a relay panel.
Location depends on model.
Some are located near the power distribution box. (inside of panels/walls) Others I've seen are located behind/near the fireplace in the slide out hutch.

And A32Deuce is right, some units have a second water pump switch in the wet bay area to turn the pump on and off when winterizing. If that switch is on, the inside switch usually doesn't have any effect on the pump.

Thanks for the reply. I do feel a little foolish! I should have checked that one.
I would still like to know how the control panel works using CAT 5 wiring.

Thanks for your responses! Yes, the water bay pump switch was on, over riding the panel switch.. thanks agin!

I'll keep looking for the relay panel. That would be a good thing to know!
I do know it's not next the breaker panel, you would think that would be a great place for it.
