Water Pump location

Does anyone know where the water pump is located on a 2012 Blue Ridge 3600RS? It seems as if the discharge ball check valve is stuck. The pump operates when power is applied however no pressure is built up and i get a waterflow out (not sure if its the overflow screen or backflow out the fill line).

Thought I'd take the easy road and ask for some wisdom instead of digging through the bottom.

If you get water out of the city water inlet then the check valve inside is stuck open. Remove screen and you should see check valve and try to reset it by pushing on it and releasing.That would prevent water pump stopping? I don't know where you water pump is located.

On our BlueRidge 3600 it is behind wall by the water heater. Our water pump takes awhile before it primes. I also, try to make sure the freash water holding tank is at least 1/3 full. Don't trust LEDs. Put 15 gallons of water in tank - registered full. makes you wonder.

Clarification : water pump is in the storage area behind the wall next to water heater

Check to make sure that your winterizing line is fully closed on the suction side of the pump.

Thanks to all for sharing your information. I have not been able to check anything out as we had the big snow here (and I just don't like to play in the cold). Should thaw out by the weekend so I'll look then.

Found the water pump exactly where all of you said it was, behind the wall by the water heater. Actually very easy to get to. Looks like no problems with the discharge screen and all lines look good. I still haven't had time to check out the ball check valve but at least have all the locations down now so should be smooth sailing from here. I plan on posting a pic of the water pump location (Shurflow pump) for all.

Thanks!!
