Locating the water pump

What would be the easiest way to locate where the water pump is located in a 5th wheel. Currently it is out of sight, out of mind for the better part. But, I feel sure the day will come that I will appreciate knowing where it is located.

I can hear it, but dang if I can find it.

2013 Wildcat 353LS

Is usually close to where the intake of your city water and/or winterizing suction line (if so equipped). If you have a control panel of various intakes and tank flushes, your water pump is usually located behind that. Otherwise, turn on a faucet and follow the sound.

On our current unit the water pump is opposite of the fresh water inlet. It's above the fresh water tank under the kitchen cabinet behind a screwed down panel.

I'd look for it in the vicinity of the fresh water tank.

On my Wildcat it was in the front basement drivers side mounted on the ceiling by the water filter. Completely opposite ends of the water fill.

That's where ours is as well.

Follow the sound and you'll find it. Mine is in my front basement mounted adjacent to the water filter.
