2 Questions:
1. Where is the water pump access inside the camper?
2. Does it have the separate hose already for winterizing?

Should be located under the fridge. There is a floor level access panel. My 2013 did not come with a winterizing line. I had to make my own and disconnect the fresh water intake.

That's where mine is. I put a bypass valve on the pump.

I found that a household handheld shower hose screws perfectly onto the pump intake from the tank, I dropped the other end in a gallon of antifreeze and viola.... I had a spare hose in my plumbing box and it looked like a close match so I tried it.

Make sure you have the rubber washer still in the shower hose end that you put on the pump , otherwise it won't pull suction... Don't ask how I know..... :-)

My 2015 is under the fridge and I had to put the winterizing kit on myself.
