Water pump quit

Hi guys. New guy here. Finally have a problem to ask about.

2011 Cardinal 3150RL.

We have been living in it for about 4 months while I work in East Texas. Everything has been pretty good so far. Until the last couple days.

We use city water almost exclusively. It isn't great, but it's adequate. We only really use the pump when my wife wants a little extra flow to wash her hair.

Recently the pump has started cycling on and off. The tank is full, and when she turns on the shower, pump runs for a couple seconds and shuts off. On and off, continuously.

Now it just does nothing. The red light is on the panel, just no pump action.

I don't know where the pump physically sits. I want to eyeball it and check the connections, etc. We had the city water supply spigot freeze, and no water because the pump failed.

Can one of you gurus tell me where to find the pump? And what other things I could check?

Thank you very much,
Michael

Check behind the panel in your basement. Shouldn't be too far from the docking station.

Pulled the panel and took a look.

Central vac, water heater, lots of wiring and piping, but nothing that looks like a pump of any kind.

I would swear that when it was running, it sounded like it was coming from the rear end of the camper. The city connection and the fresh water tank fill are both on the left rear of the camper.

But I'll be danged if I can find the pump....

What's inside the camper through the floor and wall from the fresh water tank and the city connection?

Well, now that I've taken a look at photo's of your model (which I should have done first), check under the kitchen sink (may be behind a panel screwed to the floor). Most TT's have the pump under a sink (either kitchen or bathroom). Most 5'ers have the pump in the basement but, in your case, with the connections in the rear, they may have put it under "a" sink area? Check under your sinks for any panels that seem to block off some part of the cabinet. I'll bet you'll find it.
