Should be in the outside storage compartment behind rear wheel (passenger side). There is a utility door that provides access to the water filter, the water pump should be right next to it.

We have a 2013 3050S and the filter/pump is in the same general compartment but behind the second access hatch on the rear wall of the compartment.

You will have to remove the the door and the surrounding wood panel to get to the left side of the pump which is the intake side.

Then you can hook up your auction line for the rv antifreeze.

It's a little bit of work that really is ripe for a mod.

It takes about 5-10 extra minutes the first time you do it.

Is the hose that you put in the antifreeze jug from the pump already there or is it an add on?

Winterization kit was not standard on my 2012, had to add the selector valve and hose.

It is something you buy at the rv store. You can do a permanent one like ATVer said or just unscrew the intake side once per year and hook up the hose like I do.

I will probably do a permanent one just hasn't been high on the priority list.

OK I found a door in the first compartment on the passenger side just behind the rear wheel that holds the water filter but no water pump Still looking. Beside the water filter are 2 water lines one red one blue. The blue one has a shut off valve. I'm assuming that this shut off valve allows me to remove that filter?

No, I think that is for your fresh water tank drain. At least that is what mine is for.
On the water pump, you sure it wasn't anywhere behind the panel with the door? The door is more for the access for the water filter but the pump can be more rearward. You can also check near where your water tank is and under the kitchen cabinets but I believe FR places the pump outside storage compartment partly because of the noise and partly because of service access.
