My pump has a fuse a few inches from the pump itself. I would suspect another fuse either on the battery or fuse box. The reason I would think of a second fuse is for safety.
Use a volt meter to check voltage then continuity at the fuse.
Please ask any questions and I hope you find the issue.

Dont mean to be obtuse, but where is the pump physically located? I also heard something that there is a fuse behind the control panel on wall (where the slide controls are at)

I believe all GT's have an inline fuse very close to the pump itself. "Another fuse for safety"??

I have never seen a second fuse because I have never had a no voltage issue at the pump. I say this because the positive wire going to the pump is a long way from the batteries.
I would first check for voltage at the pump fuse first. I'll post a picture in a few minutes on where my fuse is.

You haven't seen a second fuse dedicated to the water pump because it doesn't exist.

Crawling underneath; no. Wrapperman has a GT378 and someone with a GT328 should chime in with the pump location

I would first look around the fresh water tank. Mine is accessible in a cargo bay. Directly under the fresh water tank. Very easy to access. Hope yours is the same.
The reason I am assuming there may be another fuse is because running a positive wire directly from the battery or power source, then to the water pump switch and then to the pump sounds a little unsafe.
Again the first thing to do is locate your water pump, find the inline fuse and test there. If the fuse is good and still no power then check for power at the water pump switch, if no power there I would then trace the wire from the switch back to its power source and possible a fuse was added and its blown.
Again there are people always here to help.
Hope this helps.
