Question water pump and filter

Does anybody know where the water filter and the bypass valve for the water system is located in a 2015 Rockwood signature 8280ws fifth wheel?

driver side, to the rear of the storage bin (basement).Looks like the furnace will be closest thing the storage then all the water fill connections. Inside the trailer just the entertainment unit. Maybe I'll have to take off what looks like a cold air return vent and poke around behind that.

Flagstaff Likes to hide them behind false panels or a door that's screwed shut but hinged on one side.

My flagstaff access was about a 10x10 door near the floor

Can you put some water in the tank then turn pump on?
You should be able to hear it.
