12V water Pump Location

Anyone able to tell me where the water pump is located on the 286RL 5th wheel? I've looked under the island sink, in the bathroom vanity, in the main pass-through storage area. I can hear it when in use but can't locate where it's mounted.

Check for a panel to the rear of your pass through storage area. It may go all the way across and the pump and related plumbing will be behind that.

Have someone turn on the water pump switch and run water and while that is occurring, you can hunt it down by the sound it makes? Make sure you have water in the fresh water tank.

In my experience they are pretty close to where the city water connection is since they share the same plumbing inside the trailer. On all of my trailers the two haven't been farther away from each other than 18".

That should cut down on the amount of real estate you have to search.

Thanks Mike. I'll check that area this morning after my coffee

I found the pump. It was behind the panel where the water inlets, black tank flush etc. are. Only took the removal of 5 screws and two side panels to get a good look at it. Geesh! Thanks to everyone that responded.
