Where is my water pump?

I own a 2013 Forest River Freedom Express 282BH Travel Trailer. I can hear the water pump but for the life of me I can't find it. For years I have been putting Antifreeze in my on board tank and pumping it throught the lines. Fortunately I don't dry camp so it alright, but i would prefer to bypass the tank.

Thank you,

Ken in the Northeast.

If you can hear it you can find it. It is hidden behind a screwed on panel. #2 square head screws. Maybe under a drawer. Behind a drawer. under a bed. Mine is in the pass thru storage area behind a panel. It will be close to the city water hook up.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Crawl around on your hands and knees and listen around all the nooks and crannies on the floorplan. The pump is inside an interior structure or under a bed where the pump sound is the loudest. Bring a flashlight and an electric screwdriver with a #2 square drive bit to remove a panel. A good start to look for the pump is near where the fresh water tank is located.

On my Coachmen Apex, the water pump is in the bathroom behind a panel where the towel cubbies are.....

Good Luck finding yours

Look behind cabinet doors for partial shelves and panels held on by screws. I found mine beside my oven under a shelf where the lower part was behind a wood panel. Now I just leave that panel off as it is behind a cabinet door. Check under your bed if it lifts, in a front storage compartment from outside (the worst space possible), in the bathroom or in the kitchen. Good luck and hope this helps.

On a small Coachmen Viking

My water pump is in the front cross-through compartment. It is behind a small boxed panel on the drivers side. Amazing how many places they stick these things.
