I cannot find my water pump

Hi all.
We just purchased a 2014 Forest River Blue Ridge 3125RT this past year.
I was winterizing it today and blew all lines with air. Hooked the hose up to the water supply fitting and put the other end in the antifreeze jug.
Turned the switch for the water pump on the control panel to "ON".
Nothing! No sound, no pumping.
We have only used the city water supply circuit and therefore never tested the water pump.
So I checked all fuses - OK - (although there wasn't a fuse marked "water pump") and went looking for the water pump. I could not find it anywhere, and because it doesn't run, I can't even follow the sound.
Nothing in the manual about where the pump is located.
Can anyone with a 2014 3125Rt tell me where to find the water pump?
Thanks in advance.

Moved thread from the General Tech and Repair section to the TTs and 5th Wheel section's Blue Ridge sub-forum since the OP is asking for model-specific information from other Blue Ridge owners.

The manuals, which are very generic, only go back as far as 2015.

I don't think any of the generic owners manual, have any model-specific or brand-specific information, such as the location of the water pump. That varies widely, between models and brands.

A couple of thoughts....
is your battery switch ON? All other 12v things working like exhaust fans lights etc..
Can you access the back of your water heater? Look there?
My water pump is located in a kitchen cabinet behind a bottom drawer. I can see it
by pulling out the bottom drawer and looking behind it with a flashlight. I have to remove the drawer to actually get to the pump.
Good luck! We hope you find it!!

I have a 2017 Blue Ridge and the water pump is located right behind the panel with the levers for switching over to winterize. I had to remove a panel to access the pump.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

tsip1958 was correct.

For anybody wondering in the future, the water pump is immediately behind the water control panel. You need to remove the six screws holding the felt panel that faces the front, in the pass through cargo bay and the 5 screws that hold the water control panel to that felt panel. There is a rubber weatherstrip covering those 5 screw heads. It was easy to peel it aside and allow access to the screws.

It sucks that they build RV's from the center outward. They don't install components inside cabinets - they build the cabinet around the component.
