Water pump location 261bhxl

Going to attempt to winterize my TT this year. I am new to the TT luxury. I have a 2015 Wildwood 261bhxl. Where is the hot water heater bypass aswell? As you can tell my now, I am new to this.

Thank you in advance.
Byron

Hi:

The hot water heater bypass valves are located on the back of the hot water heater.
I have a 2010 Wildwood X-lite 26BHXL (might be different than yours) and mine are located under the lower bunk bed. Lift the mattress off, take out a few screws to remove the plywood that the mattress rests on, lift off the plywood and you should be looking at the back of the hot water heater (if it is the same as mine).
Hope this helps.

My water pump is in that same compartment just to the side of the water heater and its bypass valves, along with the fresh water tank.
Where is the fresh water tank fill hose (not the city water connection) located on your trailer?

I guess that's why you didn't see the water pump!
On my trailer, the FW fill is at the rear of the trailer while the city water fill is on the left side. On my previous trailer, I couldn't find the water pump either so I would turn it on for a few seconds at a time and then try to locate the noise. I found it after a few tries directly behind the electrical panel, which I had to remove to gain access to the pump. Talk about the wrong place to locate a water pump!!!
Maybe someone with a model like yours will chime in with a location. It will probably be located behind a panel you'll have to remove to gain access. I guess you checked all around the sink area? What is directly inside your trailer from the FW fill?

I have one more place to look when I can. Under the kitchen sink, which in the approximate location of the FW connection.

i have a 262bhxl and my pump was located to the left of the stove. if you look and the cabinets under the stove area it should the the only one with two screws holding a panel on. I removed the two screws and the pump was located there under the counter.

Yes, I found the pump. It's located underneath the kitchen sink, kind of underneath the pull cabinets. No room to work under there, I added the pump winterizing converter kit.
