Wildwood T21RBS water pump loacation

Hi, I have a 2014 Wildwood T21RBS travel trailer. I am trying to find my water pump. The pump sounds like it is under the kitchen sink. I removed drawers and found the water lines and a lot of building dirt. But no pump. Is it possible it is under the refrigerator? There is no access panel if it is there. I will cut a hole in the wall if the pump is there. I need to install an antifreeze hose to the pump to help winterize my system.

Steve

Could be, my bypass valves are under there.

Yes they are not the same trailer but there are only so many ways to run the plumbing

I have 31 kqbts and the pump is under fridge. Mine has a panel between the fridge and floor that is held in by 2 screws.

Robertson or square head screws?

Mine is the same.
The hole behind the panel is just big enough for me to turn the valves.




I will replace them with a smaller version of this, with a cap nut and finished washer.

I checked the panel next to the electric service (under the refrigerator) and it appears to be a metal sheet, maybe part of the heater. So what it looks like I need to cut a hole in the plywood panel on the side of the refrigerator down towards the bottom, against the outside wall.

This trailer was more expensive than the Thor Wanderer I traded in and had less pre-installed stuff than the Wanderer.

Before doing any cutting, try to post pictures of the area......the pump should be accessible without doing any cutting.

I have located my water pump. The panel next to the electric service was in so tight that I thought it was not a panel. It took two flat screwdrivers to pry the panel out. I have vacuumed the construction debris and will be ordering the parts for the antifreeze pickup tube and hot water heater bypass system.

I will trim the panel down a hair to make it easier to remove when I need to next time.

Mine had a bypass from the factory. It was right off the water heater, had to remove cabinet drawers to get to it. Hard to reach even after removing drawers.
