HELP missing water pump

I bought a 2005 Grand Surveyor and can not find the 12volt pump. This is standard isn't it?? Dealership closed for the night today.

If you fill your fresh water tank and turn on the pump - it will make it easier to locate - the pump is usualy near the water filter

If you camper doesnt have one -
camping world sell's them - there are diffrent flavor's of pumps
you will need to know the GPM (Gallons per Minute) of your old pump

I just can not find the physical location of a pump or switch.

Put some water in the fresh water tank, turn on the pump, open a faucet, follow the sound to the pump. If you don't hear anything the pump is either broken or missing. I've yet to see a camping trailer without a pump. On many units the pump switch is a red button on the holding tank indicators.

the water pump switch is usually located on the panel that allows you to check the levels of your tank (Black, Gray, Fresh and Battery)

I do not own the same unit as you so not sure on location

Thanks for reminding me of the red switch on level indicators. I found this and heard the pump run briefly and think I know where to look. The pump was located under the sink on my old unit but this one is hidden behind a panel I need to remove.

If it's anything like our TT there are 2 screws that hold that panel to the floor and the pump and filter are behind it.
It'll be a good time to replace your filter if you have one. The Whirlpool filter cartridge from Lowe's worked in mine.

I tried a filter from Home Depot - it fit but I lost water pressure so had to get another new one - I think the one I bought had a purple ring and was 1.5 Micron - I noticed the factroy one you can look straight thru a hole in the middle of the filter - the one from Home Depot couldnt see any light.

Good Idea on replacing filter but just putting the info out there on the filter cause depnding on the filter you get - you may reduce you water pressure inside the camper
