2012 RLS Crusader water pump

Can any one tell me how to access the water pump on a 2012 RLS 290 Crusader and does the 2012 come with a bypass valve. I have read many of the threads on this but was looking for specifics on the 2012, before I start taking things apart and looking in the wrong place. It
seemed like it was in the basement compartment. any help would be appreciated

The water pump is located behind the docking station on the left side of the basement compartment. The water heater bypass is also located in that area. You need to remove the small wall behind the docking station, it's secured with 4 screws. The pump is located behind the tan sheet of masonite behind the above wall. Its a messy area, water lines, black tank wash line, cable tv and satellite tv coax.

Thanks Bob, I am getting prepared to winterize and thought it would be better to ask. How do you like your pullright hitch. I also have that hitch. Only hitched up once with it as I am new to all this. And how do u like your Crusader.

I'm happy with both the hitch and camper. Just back from a week in Yellowstone and Grand Teton N.P. Have about 10K miles on the camper and have had no issues. Pleasure to tow and spend time in.

My wife and I are retiring next September just sold our house and plan on seeing the National Parks in our Crusader starting next year. We will go to Florida for next winter then head west. How is your Crusader on electric? We have ours at a full time site and have not been there the last couple of months due to selling our house, we are plugged into the 50 amp service and the only thing running is the refrigerator our electric bill has been running $75 per month that seems way to high. I just took the readings to check next months bill.

Seems really high for just the refrigerator. I've not had ours on a metered site so I don't know how much power we use.

You are paying a premium price for the power so that is about right based on some power bills I have seen.
